It’s something I’m actually quite passionate about – not using management tools that force business units to adopt a particular solution that may or may not really meet their needs. It makes no sense and actually hampers the ability for cloud to deliver the benefits it promises...

It would seem that in the IaaS cloud service delivery model unless you know what you're getting into it may be quite tough to deploy a solid, risk-averse cloud-based application.
