"Viewed through the lens of the collective IT technology trade media, a CIO can be excused for thinking that the current #cloud infrastructure marketplace appears to be an undifferentiated blur. It looks like a commodity, that's likely to be a foundation for their CEO's strategic digital business transformation goals."
