Last week I had the opportunity to hear Saideep Raj, partner Accenture global SaaS practice explain how cloud computing is changing service delivery.

In this short (4 min 08 sec) video extract, Saideep suggests that while projects provide the same consulting opportunities as traditional, they are executed in a different manner. He asserts that in transformational change projects, rather than delivering functionality in tranches over months or years, cloud projects go live quickly and then morph into the shape needed through experimentation.

While this may work in circumstances dictate a radical change, I've yet to be convinced this is a viable model in replacement situations. That was borne out in discussions with representatives from Siemens and Software AG at the NetSuite event who said that while new functionality can be introduced in a more radical manner, it is a different story when dealing with established solutions
