EUC with HCI: Why It Matters

What are the key takeaways as you plan your cloud spending for 2011 and beyond? It's important to bear in mind all the enterprise budget segments that are affected by the cloud--and involve the appropriate business-side stakeholders early and often. In addition, keep your eye on these key budget areas: virtualization, security, compliance, networking and mobile devices.

So when you consider all the spending outside of dedicated cloud computing budgets, you might realize that centralized planning can go only so far before it starts to hinder development. All areas of the business can absorb, and react to, the new paradigm. So the "hidden" truth about cloud spending might actually be that hidden spending should be encouraged, not avoided.
