Cloud Computing adds value?

I have never said that, never went there, but Martha does have something to say there:

Speaking of cloud computing, I had the opportunity to speak with Mr. Hal Anderson, CTO of 24by7 Service ( www.24by7service.com ), regarding their project management tools. This company provides a measured, intelligent solution to migrating from PBX technology to voice over IP that is vendor agnostic. They are not beholden to any of the telcos, and do not have a vested interest in any particular VoIP solution. Their role is to assist companies in leveraging IP-based communications solutions when and where it makes sense. They never, ever, recommend a rip-and-replace. Their philosophy is one I share: squeeze every last nickel of value out of existing technologies before getting rid of it, but take advantage of emerging technologies when and where it makes sense.



As an aside, we had a good time drawing numerous parallels between the telephony industry and the auto industry within this country. Oligopolies with players that remained in denial of changing market dynamics way too long are two areas that are consistent between the two industries. There were many more parallels, but you get the idea of where that part of the conversation went.
