The authors continually see companies restructure their IT outsourcing contracts with traditional IT providers as part of their business transformation programs to create a global delivery model and drive cost optimization. Though such projects have created value for some companies, for others they have failed to meet expectations. Despite the initial investment and intent, too many projects have resulted in narrow tactical gains, substantial overruns, and even outright failure. Today's IT customers are increasingly leveraging the cloud to transform their capabilities, and they are planning to move more than half of their workload to the cloud by 2014. This migration will likely continue, and the cloud will coexist with traditional IT for the foreseeable future.
