    Michael, wonderful post!

    This is a theme I’ll be riffing on, because I think the Cloud keeps companies young by simplifying complexity. It fundamentally changes Enterprise Software in ways that create some virtuous cycles to help curb some of the worst tendencies of the prior generation in the same way that in its day Client Server helped curb the worst tendencies of the then-king-of-the-hill mainframe software.

    Cheers,

    BW
