Cloud Computing-Shift from Proprietary Business Models Aligning with Commodity Offerings and creating a new IP

The maturity of the cloud has changed our thinking processes on how to best manage our IT portfolio and how to create new products and services. What’s next, new and disruptive in this space? Does the consumer experience with cloud help or hurt the service model? Is security better or worse than before? Are we at a point when entire financial services back office functions can be available in the cloud? How much can Wall Street rely on commodity clouds? What are the 2013 workloads that are trending in the cloud? What are the risk-adjusted ROI for the workloads?
