    Thanks for yet another interesting post Krishnan. I’m intrigued that you define mobile and social aspects as must haves for enterprise cloud applications. The cloud offers more access and ability to enable mobile and social components in enterprise applications. But not all traditional enterprise applications contain such components. Could you please define what you mean by ‘enterprise’?

    What about those enteprises’ objectives with respect to cloud, which may or may not require mobile / social interaction (for privacy reasons as an example)?

    From my experience, many traditional enterprises are tied to backend systems that are not cloud compatible so I’d be interested to hear your thoughts on enterprise applications that are not entirely on cloud.
