Consider some global shifts happened in IT during last decades:

  • Service-Oriented Model
  • Virtualization
  • Automation
  • Faster Networks

All of that allows Clouds exist

Consider also

  • Fuzzy Organization Boundaries - Remote Workers
  • More Complicated Software
  • High salary for IT professional
  • Business must change faster 

All of that lead to Clouds concept

Imagine ideal Data Center - where everything is automated and where you can find any service... 
How much it will cost to build that Data Center?
