I enclose details of our cloud computing fundamentals report.   

IT is a fashion industry, and cloud computing is the new black. Currently at 
the height of its hype, it will suffer a backlash before becoming fully 
mainstream and established, by which time a new phrase will have captured the 
imagination of IT pundits.   

Some fashions are longer lasting than others. Cloud computing as a term may 
have a use-by date, but the technical, operational, and commercial innovations 
behind it are here to stay. Cloud computing is a real innovation in the logic 
of how IT is sourced and managed and how services are delivered, and its use 
will grow steadily over the next 12 months. It is no longer a question of 
whether or not enterprises will use cloud computing, they already are. However, 
it is still early days for both suppliers and users, many of which have yet to 
figure out how to take advantage of the various elements of cloud computing. 
There are plenty of early-adopter benefits to be gained, despite the variety of 
challenges that cloud computing puts in their way. Taking advantage of the new 
capabilities of cloud computing requires a change of mindset and the learning 
of new skills, both of which are better done on the basis of practical 
experience than academic discussion. Getting hands-on with the cloud is the 
best way to understand its strengths and weaknesses and its impact.
