A Market Landscape/Taxonomy/Segmentation Model for Cloud Computing

I’ve completed the first draft of the cloud computing segmentation model upon which we will build our REPAMA studies.

Cloud Computing REPAMA – Taxonomy and the Role of Professional Services – Part 2

I’m continuing the REPAMA Segment Analysis Study into the Cloud Computing market attempting to arrive at a solid market segmentation and two things have become very clear.

These are: Depositioning focus Differentiation strategy Perceived threat All of these studies are concerned with […]

Moving-House

We’ve moved

Lustratus’ REPAMA consulting business has moved house. Well strictly speaking we’re still at the “Can’t remember where we put the ironing board and has anyone seen the cat?” stage of the move. But we’ve taken the first step by moving the repama.typepad.com blog to it’s shiny new location at www.lustratusrepama.com. So whilst it’ll be a […]
