SaaS and Cloud… one in the same or completely different???

I was intrigued to see over on Accountingweb a whole list of replies to what on the surface was a very simple question … “What is cloud Computing?” the rationale behind this question was also simple: Once we agree the definition of cloud computing, then we can have a more productive discussion in 2011!
