Everybody wants to be innovative. And by now, most everybody has heard that cloud computing is a gateway to new levels of business agility and innovation.
However, where do you set the bar for being innovative? More specifically, do you define innovation as providing real strategic competitive advantages to the business, and if so how will cloud computing get you there? Here’s a brief 5-min video segment from Dave Roberts’s keynote session at Cloud Expo West 2011 that describes the differences in plain terms.

Why do we limit our thinking about the benefits of cloud computing? You shouldn’t settle for tactical automation solutions with small incremental gains when far greater potential lies just ahead.
