I have found that the general theme is to move services that were 
traditionally available inside an office network (source control, email, 
ticketing/bug tracking systems, storing documents, corporate "wikis" 
etc.) to an external place, perhaps even outsourced to one of the 
virtual server or "software as a service" providers.

I am not a particular fan of that trend, but I can see the pros and cons 
of doing it. It doesn't look like that's going to stop any time soon, 
let alone be (partially) reversed.
