Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Predicting and responding to change, part of Cloud Computing First Look.
In reality, cloud computing is still somewhat in its infancy, much like the Internet was …back in the mid 90s. So there's no doubt that cloud is going to evolve over time and will …be something different to what we call the cloud at this very moment. …Gartner is a well-known research company that has some interesting thoughts on the future …of cloud computing. They've broken it down into three phases. Phase 1 which we are right …now dates back at 2007 according to Gartner, and is considered a time of pioneers and trailblazers, …or a development phase. It's exciting, it's catching on, but it's going to need more time …and many more changes in the market before it becomes a mainstream IT effort.…
Phase 2 which Gartner is predicting will run through 2013 at least will be a time of market …consolidation. Now we're already starting to see some overcrowding of providers big …and small offering a wide range of services. And this usually results in acquisition activity, …I just think of Google and all their acquisitions like YouTube Android and Picasa. …
