Here’s a news flash: Big companies may or may not be wary of Amazon’s cloud, but they’re already using it.

Presentation made by David Langdon at Microsoft Tech Days
To Cloud or Not to Cloud…that is the question. Are you an IT Administrator, IT Service Provider, or ISV faced with making a strategic decision about cloud adoption?
