The Cloud Computing Adoption Model
A context for thinking strategically about cloud computing
Think of any historical IT transformation and you’ll likely recall the pain associated with change. For large organizations, change isn’t easy and it certainly doesn’t occur overnight.

It also requires an incremental, stepwise progression that yields benefits along the way — without this, stakeholders become fatiqued, enthusiasm wanes and projects lose steam. When merchandised effectively, these incremental wins become the kindling that stokes the fire, building the enthusiasm, conviction and confidence required for transformation.
This was true for ERP and SOA projects in years past, and it’s true for cloud computing projects today.
