The road to cloud computing continues. Last month, we asked what are the first steps in moving to the cloud.

This month we are asking:

How do you move applications to the cloud?

Leave a comment on this post with your thoughts and we'll review it for judging.

My co-judge this month is Sam Ramji, vice president of strategy at Apigee. Sam is a leader in the use of APIs. He has a clear vision for how applications integrate and exist in a cloud environment.

A big thanks to my co-judge George Reese. George is the founder of enStratus, a cloud infrastructure technology solutions company with customers that include Korea Telecom.
