Re: Powerful motivator
From my experienc, existing CapEx investments will push folk to the cloud when those assets are a) fully depreciated and b) needing to be relaced/refreshed. If they are still in production use, relativly new and still being paid for, that ends up being more of a deterent to cloud adoption.

Re: Powerful motivator
jagibbons ... definitely agree on the FUD front. Curious: do you think the existence of those CapEx investments will actually push people toward the cloud? Could see that as the greatest motivator of all, especially when the big bosses are parsing budgets.

Very true, cautiousness is ususally the best. Parallyzed fear will prevent you from making informed decisions also.

Cautious and measured is good. Paralyzed by fear, not so much.

Re: Powerful motivator
To your point, "FUD" (good one by the way) is slowing down cloud technologies but it may be for good reason but only time will tell. Cloud computing and storage is too new to chance having all of your data stolen. Will all of the news concerning target and others it makes executives be overly cautious.

Powerful motivator
FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) is a very strong motivator or demotivator. This is magnified in this post-recessionary period where we are still struggling to improve financial conditions. When you add the fact that many have significant CapEx investments still sitting around, it can be very difficult to make a major move like this.
