It makes sense...
I wonder if we will see more of these integration services as the complexity of cloud becomes a more visible barrier to adoption.  This is particularly important for small organizations who just can't wrap their head around how to leverage a cloud environment, and who don't have the skills to do it themselves.  It's also a great way to get around the capital requirements associated with connecting to an environment, especially if you've got a complex ERP or other application driven environment.  Not so good news for professional services tied to environment migration perhaps.

Then again, adding more acronyms to the mix is undoubtedly continue to make it all seem more complex to customers.
