Does Yahoo Risk Missing the Window of Cloud Computing Opportunity?
Yahoo! establishes slow follower status in the cloud

Christian Knott's Blog

Now, it's business 101 that the first entrant into a market does necessarily win and that so called "fast followers" can quickly take over a market.

In Cloud computing there are early guys (notably Amazon), the fast followers (notably Google), the weird followers (notably Microsoft and Apple who seem to view the cloud as simple data sync.) and then there's Yahoo!.

CNET reported that (as they put it) "finally!" Yahoo! was getting into the Cloud business. However, it you read the Yahoo! press release it rather tersely states:

[Yahoo! will be] developing a world-class cloud computing and storage ...the Company will form a Cloud Computing & Data Infrastructure Group

The future tense plus the re-organization suggests - or promises - that progress will be slow and they'll be very late to the party. Another way of saying "late to the party" is "missing the window of opportunity".
