Windows Azure Pack for the win
All of the work on scripting out provisioning a lab in Azure task to be one click is going to be applicable on premise as well. The Windows Azure Pack (WAP) allows you to stand up your own version of the Azure Portal and let your teams self provision. Better yet, you can let your development team build their application in house, build deployment automation for your private cloud and then push the production product out into Azure without having to make significant changes (I will have articles proving this to myself later). This is going to bring infrastructure and development teams to the same table and get them collaborating rather than ranting at each other.
