    Sadagopan, couldn’t agree with your final paragraph more. Public cloud applications and platforms offer enterprises a way to rethink how they use technology and how they run their businesses. And this isn’t just marketing or hype. We went out and surveyed 155 enterprises who have adopted one or more major cloud applications, and the responses were pretty startling. This group of IT decision-makers who are more qualified than anyone to talk to the impact of cloud applications said that they were now much better able to respond to the business and 65% of them now see cloud adoption as part of IT transformation. Over 70% also said that cloud applications had changed the role of IT within the business (more detailed survey findings at http://thecloud.appirio.com/StateofthePublicCloudWhitepaper1.html). Ultimately, as you put it, IT can either continue to do mostly what they do now but virtualize and build private clouds or embrace public clouds and finally achieve that elusive goal of aligning better with the business.
