Migrate apps to the cloud!
Twitter / @Microsoft Windows: Migrate apps to the cloud! ...:
Research also shows that BPOS had outtages today, Blogger was on the fritz, Google is wanting to know more about you and Facebook pulled the lamest PR stunt I've ever heard of.
As a person that has migrated different premises apps and moved data around, I wish that everyone touting how absolutely wonderful it is in the cloud also realizes that migration is disruptive. While starting a new business and basing it totally on cloud offerings, or taking parts of your needs and moving them around may make sense, one should not go into a migration of the main line of business app merely on the basis of carbon emissions. Especially given the fact I'd love to see the real facts behind that research.
It has to make sense for the business, it has to bring something to the table of a same level or better than what you have now.
We're still in "early cloud" stage to be touting research like that.
