If the whole unadulterated, unmitigated truth be told, Dominic, can one see Cloud as a phorm of outsourcing too, being prize overphished by both desperate fat cats and thin clients. And IT has its dark and deep rich pools, an infinite abundance of virtual solutions for realised problems and ongoing difficulties exacerbated in emerging APT ACT vectors.
