Good post Chuck, one thing worth mentioning that long time before The UK Open Data Experiment, there was US-based data.gov which, to this day, provides to the public a lot of the data collected by Federal, State and Municipal government organizations.
I'm constantly amazed by how much similarities are there between successful IT organizations and the operational culture of a successful startup. The "automation and process engineering" and "closed-loop continual improvement processes" are so critical, regardless if you are $19B/year company or a bootstrapped business. For IT Renaissance to really become reality (http://mark.chmarny.com/2011/11/corporate-it-oblivious-to-new-role-but.html), it needs to learn how to pivot on demands while maintaining their long-term vision. Thanks Chuck for yet another in-depth look at challenging areas of our industry, too often blog posts on subject like this are oversimplified with a quick "you are doing it wrong" sign off. PS. Yep, I did just finished reading The Lean Startup: How Today's Entrepreneurs Use Continuous Innovation to Create Radically Successful Businesses.

I could not agree more. Last week I wrote a similar post on why corporate IT is oblivious to their new role. But, I do think the renaissance of IT is coming. Either that or the same time next week we will be using EC2 dashboard to provision new server ;) http://mark.chmarny.com/2011/11/corporate-it-oblivious-to-new-role-but.html
Really good read. Usually I get frustrated about this time of the year with all the "predictions"... everyone suddenly has a crystal ball, but, the point on simplicity alone is worth a more in-depth post. Also the prediction of purpose-driven apps in the enterprise underscores the importance of well-defined Cloud strategy in the today's enterprise. Good stuff, thank you.

Good analogy and well written. The future of the cloud is about data, the big kind of data. The importance of that data will only improve as it is used by smarter apps on top of a programmable network accessible through common API.
