A Reality Check on 'Everyone's Moving Everything to the Cloud'
A recent CIO editorial by Bernard Golden regarding the future of private
cloud spurred some interesting commentary in my network. The pushback seemed
to focus around the viability of the term “private cloud”. These
individuals are well-respected thought-leaders in cloud with significant

self-managed infrastructure as a whole.
There’s a class of individuals, myself included, whose job it is to advise

Has SaaS Become Mission Critical for You?
By Peter van Gils
Software as a Service has been around for a while. In its early years—late
1990s-early 2000s—it was mostly aimed at individual and departmental use,
but in more recent years SaaS has been deployed at the enterprise level.
There are companies that don’t use anything else.

I sat down with Michael Rösch, COO of POOL4TOOL, to chat about cloud
computing. With a lot of buzz about the impact of the cloud on business, it

past 15 years. Michael has been at POOL4TOOL since 2000, becoming COO in
