Cloud confusion stems directly from the muddling together of two completely different perspectives on cloud services:

  1. ���Inside-out��� ��� cloud enhancing the operational capabilities of internal enterprise IT and supporting the ���Back Office���
  2. ���Outside-in��� ��� cloud empowering organisations to do business with the external world and supporting the ���Front Office���

��

For each of these two models ��� ���inside-out��� and ���outside-in��� ��� the business requirement is different, the area of use (front office or back office) is different and above all the technology is different too.

��

Blurring of the lines between these two very different models lies at the heart of ���cloud confusion��� and is frequently reinforced by technology vendors pushing their products rather than business solutions.

��

To benefit from cloud, organisations need to consider ���inside-out��� and ���outside-in��� approaches in tandem, taking a holistic view across all the functions of their organization and perhaps those of other companies, agencies and partners.

��

A cloud strategy is far more than a technical strategy, it is a strategy for the transformation of the entire enterprise. It involves business people in new roles demanding a revolution in business capabilities as well as the existing people and roles looking to carry out the ongoing evolution of operating efficiency.
