Whether buying a car at a dealership, an appliance at the store, servicing your car, or helping your child select a college that will give them the education that will be valuable for their future, you want to make sure you are getting value out of your purchase.

You probably decided on the school that had the best education, but may have also had a great athletics program, library, social program and much more.

My co-worker recently made a reference to the weather in one of his blog posts, so I thought I would do the same thing. I see Clouds in our future, and that’s a good thing.

My fascination with Cloud Applications started in late 2009 when we started our Salesforce.com practice. On the brink of starting a new subsidiary that focuses exclusively on leveraging cloud applications and social strategies in the enterprise, I thought it would be a good opportunity to express what I appreciate about companies like Salesforce.com, Workday, Marketo and Dell-Boomi. Today’s true cloud vendors provide benefit to customers and are changing the landscape of enterprise applications as we know them.
