When Will Your School be Using Cloud-Based Solutions for IT?

Mark Brumley states in his Digital Learning and Environments blog:
My prediction is the 2012-2013 school year will be the tipping point when the majority of schools move to the cloud and by 2016, non cloud-based schools will be rare.

Brumley also discusses how cloud-based computing will reduce costs for school districts and state governments and how competition between Google and Microsoft will continue to keep costs free (or low) and packed with more and more features.

As an individual. I like Brumley's third major point and that is because cloud-based computing allows me to be connected anytime, anywhere. I want a seamless transition between my work and personal life and that is what the cloud and mobile devices allow.

When do you think your school or state agency will switch to cloud-based computing?
