santa-cloud Okay, let’s face it. I know at least one Enterprise organization that has migrated their traditional infrastructure to one based on Cloud Computing. That would be The North Pole. Their CEO is none other than Santa Claus (Saint Nicolas, Kris Kringle & Father Christmas are some of the other aliases he goes by). He runs an incredibly efficient organization with Mrs. Claus as CFO and the Head Elf as CIO. They have a very predictable business cycle, which includes global, year-round information gathering and management that catalogs the “naughty” and “nice” people world-wide coupled with a robust transportation and distribution system active only one day annually.
