There are really two main schools of thought when it comes to cloud computing, those who are ‘kool-aid’ drinking believers and the rest who are blindly against the cloud.
I can tell you that I started out a few years ago as a disbeliever in all things cloud related and passionately worked to defeat the concept.
Today I have converted into a true believer in cloud computing and the question is, how did I make that dramatic shift in thinking?
If you have been around the selling game for a while then no doubt you have heard someone make the comparison that his or her product is more like a Mercedes and the competitor is a Honda.
Of course, the idea behind this is to show that their product or service has a lot more value that justifies a higher price.
However, when it comes to comparing cloud computing to traditional IT support this comparison simply does not work! We say the cloud is more like a Helicopter and traditional support is a Honda, find out why!
