Rob Enderle Cautions on Cloud Computing

Words of caution from Rob Enderle in "The Real Truth and Technology and IT":

"The key to success in the cloud will be keeping solutions simple, plus understanding and mitigating the related risks (with the understanding part being the most difficult at the moment). The axiom “prospectors catch the arrows, settlers get the land” applies here and while I too believe cloud computing represents the likely future, it may take a decade for most of the problems to be worked out to a degree where cloud computing can be the reliable service that it promises to be for the wide variety of applications and services that will reside there."
