One response to “Critical Paths & Functional Clouds”

    Nice post. If we view people, process and technology as a set of services that when combined, solve a business problem – and then we acknowledge that we won’t own every service – then we can begin to see how functional Clouds play into future state architectures. Services across an ecosystem are combined to create future offerings or support business needs – and the portfolio is a combination of on-premise and Cloud-based services. Functional Clouds could represent a significant vertical piece of that portfolio.
