With all of the AWS projects I have been involved with lately, I found this article quite interesting:
IBM will eventually beat Amazon Web Services, writes CIO.com columnist Rob Enderle, but not because AWS has an inferior product. In many ways, AWS is better than IBM’s cloud offering. But Big Blue’s experience with enterprise customers, not to mention the federal government, shows that great businesses processes often beat great products.
What are your thoughts on the IBM acquisition of SoftLayer and do you think IBM will win the “battle”?
