Even if everything ends up in the cloud it would not happen for a considerable amount of time. Rushing everyone to a future that may not occur and even if it did then not for some time does not make business sense to me. Microsoft need to accept that it is not going to happen overnight, if at all, so the abandonment on on-premises solutions is very premature.

They need to remember that many of their enterprise level customers such as government agencies, civil service, banks etc. will be bound by security restrictions that prevent them using cloud storage, as data has to be kept very much inside the corporate firewall. Even wireless connectivity is banned as insecure in many government departments.

I'm in the financial industry. We've purchased a data warehouse solution that allows us to maintain critical and sensitive data on-site. If MS continues their push to the cloud, I'll have to adopt a non-Microsoft database technology. And believe me, I won't be alone.

It appears that we (collectively) are being dragged kicking and screaming into the cloud, whether we want it or not. I agree with many of the other replies, that security is a big issue and expect to see some major hacks in the near future with data, much like the credit card hacks at many of the retailers.

I don't think we can avoid the cloud, as this seems to be a natural progression for most of the software companies, and like all the others, Microsoft does not want to be left behind. I do think this needs more thought and consideration before putting all your eggs into the cloud basket.

I believe Microsoft's new CEO is solidifying the cloud only stance with this quote from a recent interview.

Microsoft has no SQL Server developers. We have only Azure developers.


While he does say that they go back every 12-18 months and refactor into something that can be sold, their focus is a cloud first vision.

...but is that just posturing or a technical reality from Microsoft? Only time will tell.

I'm not aware of Microsoft ever meeting a revenue stream it didn't like and abandoning it. 'Bob' maybe? Or whatever that OS abomination was called. Anyway, the monolithic company with the monolithic marketing message needs to be careful it doesn't spook an entire segment of lucrative customers away. We plan some of the these purchases years in advance and if they sound like they are going in a different direction then we are, then we won't follow. Personally, I've also thought whoever does the marketing at Microsoft (at least post 2000) really should be doing something else. They are their own worst enemy.

The perpetual item put on the Novell Christmas wish list by the sys admins was a really good marketing team. They never got one. See what happens? . . .

A little bit of this and a little byte of that can cause bloatware.
