    How about maturity in Security/ SLA? Cloud 2.0 if you may call so?

    Your predictions have shown to be fairly accurate so far.

    Will companies still looking to adopt cloud (and there are many still positioning themselves for it) want to go directly to PaaS instead of first adapting existing systems or existing expertise to IaaS? Will they next opt for something like CloudFoundry, which still requires them to maintain control of some infrastructure? Will they go for something more abstract?

    IBM seems to be leading some of the big data to cloud initiative with BigData University: http://bigdatauniversity.com/. This has been picking up steam pretty significantly.

    I’m also with you on the APAC and Indian markets. A whole slew of new service providers and regional datacenter will be coming to market next year to better serve those markets.

    As a side note, RightScale will be hosting our conference and offering perspectives on these topics at the same time as CloudExpo. There are free VIP CloudExpo passes still available through http://www.rightscale.com/conference if any of your readers are interested.
