While there’s a lot of chest-thumping going on over who has the biggest cloud, there’s no doubt that IBM suddenly has a lot of momentum following its acquisition of SoftLayer. Amazon Web Services (AWS) remains the largest public cloud service by far in terms of the pure number of virtual machines. But when you consider more than just infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) in the cloud, IBM claims to have generated $4.4 billion in revenue across a cloud ecosystem that includes SoftLayer, 150 software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications and a vast array of cloud consulting services.

While there’s no doubt that the influence of developers has never been greater, a debate is starting to emerge concerning how much power developers now wield across the enterprise. At the Red Hat 2014 Summit last week, Deepak Advani, IBM general manager for cloud and smarter infrastructure, told attendees that developers are now the kingmakers of enterprise IT. To back up that claim Advani noted that not only do developers today decide what APIs will be published, but increasingly they determine what technologies are actually deployed.
