A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers.
