Conceptually, cloud computing services can and will be provided at any layer of the IT computing stack, from raw compute services to business process services.
One answer is that it is early, the supply chain, as such, doesn’t exist, and what does exist is not standardized.
I believe that the future of cloud services will be much more dynamic and fluid, with both horizontal and vertical federation. This is exactly what happened to servers – they went from highly integrated and proprietary mainframes (proprietary hardware and limited applications) to midrange systems (with packaged software from third parties) to high-volume servers (hardware separated from operating systems separated from business applications).
Google is really a using the cloud computing paradigm as an enabler to essentially own the battlefield where businesses fight as compared to being an arms supplier.
I had a doubt as google needs store large amounts of information will it use mainframes if so when did it start using it from initial stage itself???????

TweetA unit of Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group and fund Yunfeng Capital have jointly announced the setup of a CNY1 billion ($157 million) fund to invest in cloud-computing companies and developers that make applications for a mobile-device operating system from Alibaba. In July, subsidiary Alibaba Cloud Computing unveiled its Aliyun OS, a Linux-based operating system aimed at helping the e-commerce giant promote its products in China. Alibaba also launched on Monday a CNY1 million competition to encourage developers to build the best cloud apps for the Aliyun OS.
In 2012, more than 1.7 million jobs in the field of cloud computing remained unoccupied, according to analysts firm IDC.
Cloud marketing has the ability to drastically change the ways in which they reach and engage their audience, particularly with regard to distributing and storing mission-critical data. More and more companies encourage their employees to work on their devices, thus reducing the cost of computer equipment, but also increase the cost to maintain licenses and safety. Despite the inclination to wait until all of the cloud’s kinks have been worked out, holding off on cloud initiatives until the industry matures won’t guarantee success. The software industry is undergoing major changes by trends such as cloud, SaaS, mobile technology and the “consumerization of IT”. While benefits management is not a new concept, in fact we wrote a 101 guide back in 2008, it’s still something that isn’t done particularly well. We’ve spoken to a number of project management professionals over the years and some common areas of concern keep popping up. When writing a project’s business case, it’s really easy to inflate the number of benefits that the project is likely to achieve in order to get your project across the line. Project benefits are usually achieved long after the project that identified them has come and gone. By aligning benefits to the organisational goals you ensure any projects that are undertaken are actively contributing to achieving what the organisation has been established to do.
One of the biggest mistakes in benefits management is to have a number of benefits outlined in the business case and then ignoring them until the project finishes.

One sure way to get to grips with benefits management is to implement a tool that helps you both capture the benefits your projects are meant to achieve and measure progress against those goals.
Psoda’s Programme & Project Management module offers a benefits realisation tool designed to help you realise the full potential of your projects.

The India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA), a body representing the Indian Electronic System Design and Manufacturing (ESDM) and Semiconductor industry, presented their recommendation to the Government of India for the Union Budget 2013 – 14. In its proposals relating to ESDM, the IESA has recommended the government encourage domestic electronics manufacturing and product development—building the domestic electronics industry is a very important item for national agenda, from security, self-reliance as well as future business potential.
While many believe CIO's role is evolving and that he's occupying a key place in the boardroom, a recent study brings to light that more than half of the CIO, CTO or IT admin staff (55%) are not thanked by colleagues for carrying out essential IT tasks on their behalf. Thirty percent of physical servers are sitting "comatose" according to research findings from Anthesis Group.
In fact, cloud demand for banking almost doubled in 2013 with the introduction of mobile banking. So, conceptually, a cloud service might actually include a supply chain of cloud services – a cloud process provider using cloud software providers using cloud compute and storage providers, etc.
Software as a service providers are building data centers filled with customized infrastructure – and in Google’s case, highly customized and proprietary hardware. While highly integrated and proprietary vertical cloud services will exist, they will be a minority – and in fact, their competition will be fluid, federated solutions of smaller competitors who should be much more agile.
Will early market leadership translate into strategic viability even in a more componentized cloud services market? It will go bottom up – and focus on being the IT platform for small business as a whole to run their business. This is a bad idea because if the project is approved you’re likely going to be expected to deliver the benefits that were outlined in the business case.
Therefore it is important to identify an owner that can continue to measure and report on the achievement of those benefits. It also lets you see which projects are not contributing and makes the decision to cull them much easier. Some of your benefit assumptions may be proven wrong or the environment might’ve changed, reducing the actual benefit(s) you are likely to achieve. The IESA’s recommendations cover two primary areas, namely Electronic System Design & Manufacturing (ESDM) and semiconductor design. There is an urgent need to take actions to stimulate the domestic electronics industry and build brand India by encouraging locally designed products for local and global markets, opined the trade body.

Given the talent in the country, I see no reason why India cannot become a global leader in electronics in the near future,” said Satya Gupta, chairman, IESA. Semiconductor fabrication entails large capital investment of the order of few billion dollars, depending upon the technology node, which can only be looked at by large corporates, with requisite support from the Government. A future challenge for existing vertically-integrated cloud service providers will be to componentize their offerings – open up cloud services at lower levels of their cloud computing stack, and leverage other cloud service providers when appropriate. Mainframes have been attempting to evolve for years – to support more operating systems, more packaged applications, etc.

For example, you might have a benefit statement that says “we will improve the quality of housing for our tenants” which is almost impossible to measure. There is no point making the project manager responsible as they will have moved on long before the benefits could be realised.
If the project scope is changed or reduced, this can also seriously impact the benefit(s) you can achieve. India has emerged as one of the leading countries in the semiconductor design, with 23 of the top 25 MNCs having their design centres in here. Currently there is no state-of-the-art chip fab facility in the country, which can cater to commercial applications exposing India to both strategic and supply chain risks. To be sure, they can differentiate by having customized hardware or unique management software, or unique performance capabilities – but betting on this differentiation going forward seems extremely risky as the markets mature. Should Microsoft be building datacenters, or instead, directing datacenter standards for Microsoft software? This could be changed to “we will reduce the number of maintenance call outs from our tenants by 15% in the first year” which can easily be measured. Consider making the benefits owner an end-user, that way you are more likely to get the continuous monitoring required. It could even get to the point where the cost of the project outweighs the adjusted benefits, i.e. Also, make sure the benefits owner is empowered to take the necessary actions to ensure the benefits are realised.
Hence, we urge the government of India to take proactive steps to encourage this sunrise industry,” said P V G Menon, president, IESA.

By re-evaluating your benefits during the life of your projects you can detect this early and make a decision to stop further work on that project to prevent any further costs for little gain.
