The term “cloud” has different meanings to different people. It’s so broadly defined with so many meanings that it really does not mean much at all.

However, several cloud concepts are gaining more interest, whether in cloud contexts or not. By focusing on these concepts, rather than the more general notion of cloud computing, you can get more value in your organization’s technology, cloud and otherwise. Three concepts in particular stand out: devops, management and governance, and data analytics.
