During this session Dr. Borenstein will debate what new kinds of services might emerge once cloud computing has become ubiquitous, what new standards might emerge, and what dangers might be posed by their absence.
Discussions about the cloud have largely focused on the mechanics of the cloud, the challenges of moving traditional applications to the cloud, and generally on reasons for moving to the cloud. Cloud computing has been, for the most part, sold, justified, and appreciated on grounds of economy and efficiency.However, we are rapidly entering a world in which the cloud is an accepted, increasingly mundane fact of life, but one that informs and underlies nearly every aspect of information service delivery. In this talk I will explore what will be different in such a world. What new kinds of services might emerge once cloud computing is ubiquitous? What new standards might emerge, and what dangers might be posed by their absence? How will black hat" hackers change their techniques and targets in a cloud-centred world? What new kinds of threats might command the attention of IT executives
