    It is unfortunate but understandable [despite plenty of warnings] that it will take such a scenario as Coghead’s demise to drive home the point of the risks of choosing proprietary solutions, Krishnan.

    Without discounting the help offered to the Coghead refugees, it has become obvious that there will be more roadblocks towards widespread enterprise adoption given more incidents like this. If this continues, expect more major players – those with tons of cash to spare, to ‘perpetuate’ their reign even as small, innovative ‘cloud’ players struggle.

    With fingers crossed, hope that wouldn’t be the case.
