- What's the conversation in the board room as you're trying to get cloud budget? 
- Is cloud computing better for some organizations than others?
- Which questions should you have asked your vendors while doing research? 
- How do you avoid "vendor lock-in" and do you need a cloud exit strategy? 
- Does interoperability lead to commoditization of cloud services?
- What should vendors do to push the cloud forward? How will it change?
