Exactly which enterprise solutions will migrate to the Cloud?
Thought I’d throw my hat into the ring on the debate about how much of enterprise IT will migrate to the Cloud. I’ve always thought about IT solutions as either helping reduce costs typically by automating tasks that were previously manual or inefficient , (e.g. HCM, CRM) or as helping to increase competitive advantage by giving the business capabilities that competitors do not yet have. Example of this would be a pioneering customer facing application, (albeit it would probably be rapidly copied and commoditized) or some innovative in-house solution such as John Deere and Catapillar developed many years ago for cost management.
