2010 Cloud Computing – Storms on Horizon Deloitte US Apr 2010

Interest In cloud computing has been spurred by a confl uence of changes in the business and information technology landscape. Today, it is generally viewed as a potentially attractive new form of low cost IT outsourcing, and cloud technology providers and users are focused on tackling the many limitations and challenges of cloud computing,
especially in serving enterprise scale needs. Looking ahead, though, we see a series of signifi cant disruptions that will be catalyzed by the evolution of cloud computing.
These disruptions will become progressively more widespread and profound, creating opportunities not only to re-shape the technology industry but all institutional architectures  and management practices in an expanding array of other industries. Providers of cloud computing that can provide a compelling shaping view to mobilize other participants will  have the potential to carve out a leadership position and reap signifi cant rewards by leveraging their own efforts through the initiatives of many others. As a result, all businesses  would be well advised to begin to develop experience with cloud computing platforms at an early stage to better prepare themselves for the disruptions that lie ahead.
