Microsoft's Ray Ozzie Thinks It's Still Early Days for Cloud Computing

"Large enterprise customers don't really believe vendor SLAs" - Ozzie

Speaking at a JP Morgan event in Boston on Wednesday, Microsoft's Chief Software Architect Ray Ozzie said that Microsoft's approach to cloud computing "is in the five areas where we have significant advantage in this transition relative to other competitors."

These five areas he defined as "experience first and foremost, technology, partners ... developers and the actual customers/install-base momentum."

"Large enterprise customers don't really believe vendor SLAs," Ozzie also remarked.

Despite Azure, it would seem that Microsoft's Chief Software architect deems Cloud Computing to still be two years away from penetrating Enterprise IT thoroughly.

Most of the companies in the industry seem to believe otherwise.
