I had the pleasure to be invited again by itSMF this year to their summer course to talk about cloud computing (what else?).
As usual it was a great experience and the opportunity to meet again with some good friends.
I showed my view on how IaaS is becoming less and less important for big companies and how those clients prefer to contract SaaS if there's something available so they don't have to deal with hardware complexity, even if it's in the cloud.
Another important idea of my speech was about avoiding the trap of private cloud, you can try to improve your existing infrastructure use as much as possible, but, to me, it has no sense to buy new hardware to create your internal cloud.
