  1. Tend to disagree with the cheaper nature as a conclusion since it does vastly depends upon companies maturity and the transformational costs that go with this… By the way, it's not proven that they are cheaper, it is stated that they get boxes for cheaper money and benefit from latest innovations quicker. How is this linked to the fact that the result would be cheaper for the clients when it does not include any aspects of their specific needs or constraints?
    Also, the Public Cloud Providers are not in the charity business and hence will have to make margin out of this hosting business when a company does not expect to. Will this not erase the benefits of their cheaper procurement model?
    Finally, what about the cost of moving services and data from one provider to another ? Vendor Lock-in, Reversibility Costs overall ? This question definitely requires more than the technical and generic aspects addressed in that video. It is however an interesting starting point. I hope not too many companies Execs took for granted the "cheaper by definition" conclusion from Gartner.
