I am not sure that cloud computing has been around long enough in its current taxonomy (~4Q2007) to have a good core of professional cloud consultants.

There are a lot of great cloud technicians comoing along, but even the most visible vendors have difficulty representing the technology relative to business strategies.

it does remind me of the good old Internet days, when most of the consultants were still the grad-assistant types.

Almost impossible to have a legitimate conversation with one, as most were strongly opinionated and for the most part unhelpful guiding a company along with either technical implementations or business process and architecture planning.

It is still clear that having a CCIE in the Internet engineering field does not assure anybody you will have a good experience. Maybe a certification in cloud is good, but we will need to make sure we are not enabling pure technicians to try and represent themselves as business experts.

In a brand new market space like 'cloud computing', I'd argue the most important things to look for are a) past success as a consultant or practitioner in cloud-related areas (e.g. virtualization, IaaS, SaaS) and b) well-formed opinions about the cloud market with the ability to back up those opinions with anecdotes from past experience.
