Commentary from 451’s Peter ffoulkes: The transformation of IT to a ‘client service’ model is notable and gaining momentum. While this is occurring in many forms, cloud-oriented projects are consolidating in an activity level at three times the level of other supporting projects, with internal private cloud projects leading the pack at 37%. Over the last year of the Cloud Computing Study there has been some pullback of public cloud activity. While these projects still outweigh traditional IT or ‘cloud-readiness’ projects at a similar level, there has been a small but noticeable shift toward private cloud project activity. (via

"It is not surprising, then, to see these personal productivity applications leading the list of SaaS investment plans." I can’t wait for consumer tech to take over. More than likely it’s a generational thing - what I call a “retirement problems” the IT decision makers who are comfortable with the old white-collar toolchain (and haven’t “grown up” on the new, mostly Google- and Apple-driven toolchain) are the boy with his finger in the dike.

In summary, if you need to develop any sort of product or service that integrates with the public cloud, and you want to be able to develop and test at local LAN speeds, a private cloud is an excellent choice. Furthermore, if you have large data storage and transport needs, the private cloud becomes the only reasonable solution which gives you the best performance and no additional bandwidth cost. Look to the private cloud for your development and testing needs.

Banks and information technology: Silo but deadly
I'm not keen on banking industry uses cases for general IT use cases - they've got so much cash to spend and such specific problems (e.g., high speed trading) that it doesn't apply easily to, for example, JC Penny's - but the ones in here are still good.
