Except from secret closed door meetings at a well known technology company discussing some businesses refusal to unquestionably adopt new technology ...

This is why all customers need to be coerced to the cloud where they have little to no control over what they are required to use/accept. With the old model of ownership clients are able to opt out of future updates to our software. We at [redacted] have tried a number of solutions to coerce customers over to whatever new products we are promoting at the time but outdated concepts of ownership and choice have made this impossible so we are now moving customers to the cloud where they will have no choice about adoption. Yes the customer can always opt to stop using our services but unlike before they will have no older version to fall back on since the move to the cloud means the customer has no on premise option. In the old days if they did not want to upgrade from Windows 7 to 10 they could opt to keep running Windows 7 as long as the apps the use would keep working. The advent of the cloud and the services it has spawned like [redacted] are enabling us and our fellow cloud based brethren to remove customer choice while still making money. The cloud is truly a corporations greatest asset.

While the cloud allows us to control our customers software choices the unsecured IOT (Internet of things) will allow us unfettered access to every household on the planet and so our next biog goal is how best to coerce customers to accept unsecured IOT devices. Any ideas ......

End Excerpt

And some people wonder why there are those of us in the real world who don't embrace new technology without question or opt for the wait and see approach.
