Conclusion
     •   Cloud Computing is a business imperative and not just a technology trend

     •   IaaS, PaaS and SaaS are starting to become mainstream but we are still
         scratching the surface on the true potential of the Cloud

     •   Cloud Computing enables an Agile Enterprise by focusing on Value Chains
         that extend beyond traditional departmental and organizational boundaries

     •   It requires IT to rethink how it manages the “Business of IT”

     •   Cloud also forces Service providers to rethink how they deliver IT services
         to the customer
