Analysis of the authors most recent global Cloud IT survey results indicate that the Asia-Pacific region is moving aggressively ahead of US and European regions in both adoption plans and deployment of Cloud IT solutions. The net result is an AsiaPac region poised to leverage competitive advantage of Cloud-based IT into further advantage in global business competition. However, the current, anything-goes, point-solution Cloud IT buying pattern could spell future IT and business management trouble for AsiaPac firms, unless they are able to utilize Cloud-based management solutions effectively.
