IT WORLD CANADA CURATED: Apple co-founder sees “a lot of horrible problems in the next five years”
The co-founder of Apple has been pretty outspoken in his criticism of cloud services, citing the usual concerns over security and lack of control.

Many, if not most larger enterprises are not keen on adopting a full public cloud for these very reasons. Given enough scale, a private cloud can be a viable option, or a hybrid deployment that puts non-critical applications in the public cloud while keeping mission-critical applications on premise.
