It’s been a few years since we’ve heard the term “Cloud Computing” and really haven’t seen a whole lot of movement to this technology — yet!
Typically with any new tech and platform, there’s an uptake period in which there are questions and costs and a complete change in processes…most of which are overwhelming for major corporations to implement quickly an economically. But when the elephant moves so will little the guys.
As the iPad goes on sale and shipping the movement has begun in a critical and meaningful way. Cloud computing here we come! Whether one likes the idea of remotely storing and working ‘off’ their desktops/laptops – we will have no choice in the matter.
The Cloud has already evolved and taken on other tech movements. Those that are nimble and forward thinking will ride the wave and other will perish.
Will there be a clear winner when the dust settles or will the big boys (ie Google, FB, Apple) decide to settle differences and collab in creating the ultimate unified platform?
Exciting and scary times ahead…
