I wouldn't count on any of the cloud providers to rush headlong into supporting A6. Their "open" APIs, which we know aren't open but rather are published, provide a point of lock-in that service providers like to maintain.

Thus they will support A6 (or any other truly open APIs) only when forced to by big customers that make it mandatory.

I think that's what O'Grady is saying, though sometimes that fancy analyst language is a bit confusing to a simpleton like me...



Hey Mike, I am sure they'll want to figure out some way to try and lock customers in, but I am not sure they need to use security mechanisms to do that, they can try and find other ways and leave security to more open standards
