    Hi Ray– fantastic list.

    CIOs often struggle to find a partner to help them answer these questions and make the transition to cloud computing. Their traditional partners have too much to lose to move from the status quo, and have expertise in all the wrong areas– it doesn’t matter anymore how good they are at managing a server farm.

    That’s why we expect a new type of partner to emerge, offering what we are calling “cloudsourcing.” Its the natural combination of two trends that have dominated how enterprises utilize information technology over the last 2 decades. The first is a shift in how IT is architected– from mainframe to client server to cloud-based technology. The second is a shift in how IT is sourced and delivered–from a purely in-house function to a function increasingly delivered by specialized vendors.

    Here’s our take on cloudsourcing— looking forward to continuing the dialog!
