Shifting the vision...
Interesting outlook on how the strategy of cloud is shifting from the IT realm into the LOB view.  This makes perfect sense when you look at how cloud is really an overall transformation methodology, less of a technology play.  The main drive for cloud adoption is to do things more efficiently, while keeping up with the pace of innovation.  Thsi is right up the alley of senior leadership, they want to fix some of the biggest roadblocks to the success of the organization: budgets and skillsets.  cloud is a great tool to help alleviate these headaches, and it's great news to see non-IT interest in leveraging these methodologies.
