I'm currently working in an academic setting and from my observations the "phenomenology" approach to papers is still very prevalent. I see a lot of papers which are just measuring A vs B vs C in some way.

The point about project size is also still valid. There is no way a small research group at a university can "compete" against Rackspace or Amazon in cloud computing innovation.
