"They tell everyone that they can do everything quicker, cheaper and more expansively," says Lee Fisher, VP of products at service provider Abiquo.

But no IT turkey is ever going to vote for Christmas, says Fisher.
On the other hand, some claims made by the IT department are ludicrous. The cloud can never deliver the benefits the business wants, and the IT department probably secretly knows this, but they're in denial about the awful secret. The elephant in the IT room is that existing business processes are so flabby and out of shape that they cannot be finessed by a cloud system. It's a bit like putting a loose fitting tracksuit on a patient rather than putting them on a diet before their operation, says Fisher. As many surgeons will attest, the excess of flab makes surgery very difficult. You need to slim down the patient down.

"If you rip the heart out of a system, but leave the flabby business processes in place, the new infrastructure won't be any more efficient," says Fisher. "It's like taking out an overweight person's heart and replacing it with a life support machine. Nothing's going to change for the better because it's not the engine that's the problem, it's the excess baggage."
Fine turning the business processes of a company are much harder, which is why most IT bosses won't even attempt this. If you can do it, the cloud service that follows will be far more effective, says Fisher.
