We readily acknowledge that the move from mainframe to client/server, the proliferation of personal computing, and the explosive growth of the Internet have fundamentally changed the way we interact with IT.  In my opinion, the cloud has already affected a change of this magnitude, but many private and public sector organizations have been slow to understand its impact on their enterprise.


Data, services, and applications now are widely available on demand, anywhere, from any device, at little or no cost, and to any user. Users also have nearly universal access to high-speed network connectivity, effectively freeing them from reliance on the enterprise network and its controls. This new found freedom means that users may completely by-pass the traditional controls over purchasing set by the CFO, CIO, and IT department.
