Power to the People Users are no longer constrained by what technology allowed them to do; Technology now follows what users want to do
Moore's law describes an important trend in the history of computer hardware: that the number of transistors that can be inexpensively placed on an integrated circuit is increasing exponentially, doubling approximately every two years Are we on the verge of a Moore’s law definition for the Cloud Computing Landscape? Computing capacity today: Hundreds, even thousands of connected servers located across the globe and you don’t even have to own them or know where they are located. Mull it Over ! Do More with Moore !!
Cloud Broker defined The future of cloud computing will be permeated with the notion of brokers negotiating relationships between providers of cloud services and the service customers. In this context, a broker might be software, appliances, platforms or suites of technologies that enhance the base services available through the cloud. Enhancement will include managing access to these services, providing greater security or even creating completely new services. “ “ - Gartner Research

Software vendors can co-create value by working closely with their customers and by responding to their individual needs they can become innovative: Demonstrating clear returns-on-investment (ROI) - not just in monetary terms but in tangible business results as well, speeding implementation, working with business units on R&D for new initiatives, building products which can leverage legacy assets. These are just a few of the ways in which a cloud vendor can become an innovation partner. CK Prahlad (August 8, 1941 – April 16, 2010) Innovate … Build Differentiation The competitive landscape is changing. I think the next generation of systems is one consumer co-created experience using the resources from multiple vendors. The nature of advantage, I believe fundamentally, is access to capital, raw materials, technology, and resilient processes and analytics. And new value creation and innovation depends on rethinking technical architecture of your firm. I believe information architecture and capabilities will become new strategic assets; therefore, IT matters."
Reduce CAPEX – Low/No Upfront costs for deployment. There are no expensive Datacenters that need to be set up and run Optimize Resources — Cloud computing improves infrastructure utilization rates and streamlines resource management. Eliminate over-provisioning —scaling on demand, removes the need to overprovision to meet possible futuristic demand or resource requirement spikes. Cloud computing makes it possible to scale capacities in an instant when the demand arises and release the capacity when the demand tapers… Key Benefits
