Past may be prologue to but doesn't pre-determine the future
Steve, you have a point. The primary purpose today for agile is to speed up modification of legacy systems. But there's no reason its principles won't be applied to writing of next generation apps and in fact they already are. The past doesn't always predetermine the future. Dev teams will comprehend the cloud and want to deploy to it.

Sophistircated software running on cheap hardware
Good summary, J.P. Morganthal. Randy Bias strikes again. He's said many memorable things. But I'd add it's not just the resilient software on cheap hardware. It's also the simplified, standardized environment and the ability to apply automated processes to it. But at the core, the economic argument, sophisticated software running on cheap hardware, stands.

Software is taking over the world
That's about right, Lorna. LIke the diner analogy. Software is taking over the world, and if you don't have the most efficient platform on which to run it, you'll find all kinds of disadvantages slowly accruing to your account. Sometimes that platform is on premises, sometimes in the cloud. What we really want is close to 100% utlization of the resource in either place.

It's about the spikes
Charlie, thought about this yesterday when I passed a local diner. The place is usually 65% full, except on Sunday between 10:00 and noon, when the line is out the door and plenty of potential customers decide not to wait and drive on by. Every week, the owners lose money because they can't handle a predictable spike in demand. Companies that take to heart the concept of Agile and DevOps -- which quite possibly will lead to a demand spike -- but don't add that cloud angle risk leaving millions on the table.
