CTOvision

How will the cloud change IT? Look at Microsoft

David Linthicum

Microsoft is planning a global sales reorganization to better focus on selling cloud software, according to Microsoft insiders. This comes as no surprise, considering that Microsoft did the same for its ailing phone business last year. What does this mean? Well, cloud in, software out—at least from the Microsoft business standpoint. However, count on Microsoft soaking you for more operating system and office automation money for years to come. So, that’s still a thing.

Cloud portability is still science fiction

David Linthicum

Enterprises want cloud portability. Well, they want to hedge bets in case a public cloud provider “breaks bad” in terms of consistently poor service, or performance issues, or, more likely, jacking up the subscription fees to obnoxious levels. As many CIOs I have talked to put it: “We need to have choices. Choices mean leverage.” I get that. [ To the cloud!

Cloud app slow? Blame the app, not the cloud

David Linthicum

It’s 7:00 a.m., and you’re in the office early. You’re hoping that nobody else is accessing the public cloud the company uses and that the inventory application will perform well for a change. However, even with just a handful of users on the cloud at that time of the morning, performance is still lackluster. The knee-jerk reaction is to blame the cloud provider. The provider is, of course, the host of the application and data thus any performance problems fall on its shoulders, right? Wrong.
