McKinsey: Adopt the cloud, lose money

Adrian

nature of software

I only read this article and not the report it was based on. However, at least in this article, no mention was made of the type of software, or the nature of the workload (e.g. 2 servers needed for most of the year and 50 required just before Christmas).

One size does not fit all for software / customers. Factors change which programming languages, development teams, methodologies, etc are most suitable. Why would it suddenly be so simple for the deployment environment?

Cheers,

Adrian

Thumb Down

You do realise google is not an NPO right?

They are a company making money - that's what companies do (unless they are a bank I guess). I don't get your issue with a company making money from it's products. You do news stories so well, maybe you should stick to stories that contain some news rather than trying to define my opinion for me...

Cheers,

bias

The article comes across as very biased in two ways: google are defaulted to evil, while us ad spenders are relegated to stupid by-standers. I setup google ads awhile back and it was fairly clear that your position was dictated by your click through rate and other factors. Of course it would be - this is not a democracy - it's a business. Relationships with previous good clients are a normal,ethical and important part of business.

btw, is it possible to limit the number of responses any single user can make to just one response?
