      We are in the midst of a revolutionary change in how applications are sold,
      delivered, deployed and managed.

      Cloud computing is a game changer. The cloud is disrupting traditional software
      and hardware business models by disrupting how IT service gets delivered.
      Entrepreneurial opportunities abound as this classic disruptive technology
      begins to proliferate.

      Virtualization cuts across just about all of what you might find in the
      data center: clients, servers, applications, storage systems, data networks,
      and security can all be virtualized to one degree or another. And chief
      executives are discovering that virtualization has the potential to not
      only improve the balance sheet, but strengthen competitive advantage
      and put a shine on the corporate brand.
