re: U.K. Government Mandates Cloud First IT Procurement
A step in the right direction to get cloud pragmatically considered in all projects. More businesses should take this approach, to ensure they at least consider cloud fairly in every IT project and refresh. Too many still discount cloud without taking the time to understand it, taking the easy option to just do what they always did.

Similarly Blockbuster, HMV, Kodak and many others took the same 'who needs to look at the new world' approach avoiding change and innovation at every step.
