Most of the private cloud installations I've seen involved two steps.
1. Moving legacy client-server applications from physical installation
to virtualized environment.
2. Slow replace the legacy applications (mostly platform dependent
client-server software) with web-based software (which usually support
mobile devices, hence the connection to the, umm, OP?).

Whether you call the above "the move to private clouds" "The move to
Web 2.0 applications" or "the mad cat revolution" is completely
