The O'Reilly Open Source Convention (OSCON),currently held in Oregon, USA, featured a special summit on Cloud Computing. The Cloud Summit, which is taking a look at the potential and future of the cloud from a lot of different angles. One of the more interesting questions posed during the Summit was “Is the enterprise ready for the cloud?” Mark Masterson, Innovation Lead at CSC, a technology business solution firm, posed this question then promptly answered “no, absolutely not, not even close.” He then quickly said that it doesn’t really matter if they are or not, because it is here. Masterson, as well as numerous other speakers, talked about the commoditization curve, where basically first innovation happens, then a product or service begins to emerge, followed by a period where that product or service is usable and ultimately considered a commodity. He sees cloud computing as finally at the commodity phase and now predicts major competition to emerge in cloud solutions. So if the cloud is now at the commodity phase and more and more businesses start to turn to the cloud, how can they really take advantage of it?
