A Little Less Cloudy: A New Chapter in the Struggle for Business Solution Ownership

Just over two years ago I wrote a piece for MSDynamicsWorld titled "The Real Disconnect Fueling the Cloud Craze?" Based on comments from customers and other MVP's it was clear to me then that much of what was fueling the cloud buzz on the business side was really a backlash against IT. Sales, Human Resources and Finance wanted greater control over their applications. They didn't want to wait for IT to takes weeks to setup servers, manage security, etc. They also hated when IT wouldn't learn enough about business specific products to support them. The business side wanted applications now, and they wanted them to be supported.
