Many enterprises planning a move to cloud-based systems believe a huge disruptive change in the IT organization is required as part of that shift. They call it “building a cloud organization.” I blame this disruptive mentality mostly on the ongoing press coverage that calls for “the end of IT as we know it” or other silly events that won’t happen.

Any time the analysts or press project absolutes, their predictions never seem to pan out. In the world of IT, we evolve. We don’t suddenly shift.
