Complexity Makes Cloud Choice Clearer

It is no surprise that despite better user interfaces, computers and networks get more complex every year. I've been covering this stuff since June 4, 1984 and I can't totally keep up. Those in the trenches have it worse, managing new technologies while trying to remember how the old stuff works. According to the Gartner brain trust (and this one I may believe), all this is leading IT shops to consider the cloud since much of the application and network management is handled by the cloud provider.

Is Garter right in this instance, or once again merely in love with its own conjecture? You tell me at [email protected]
