Digital revolution with Cloud computing


Published on

Digital revolution is upon us. Cloud has become increasingly mature, social has taken over our lives by storm, whether twitter, Facebook, linkedin or just about doing anything with our personal or private lives. Mobile / smartphone is almost literally wearable tech in our pockets but more is coming. And finally with big data & analytics (structured and unstructured), we are at the brink of defining our new lives as "fully informed consumers". IoT (Internet of things) is the next big platform, a marketplace where all things will happen. Yes, all of the things!

This presentation was given in Malaysia conference 2009 and it still holds true!

Digital revolution with Cloud computing

  1. 1. Cloud Computing The Shi(f)t is happening!
  2. 2. What the heck is a Cloud? • Wikipedia says: “Cloud computing is Internet-based ("cloud") development and use of computer technology ("computing"). The cloud is a metaphor for the Internet (based on how it is depicted in computer network diagrams) and is an abstraction for the complex infrastructure it conceals.[1] It is a style of computing in which IT-related capabilities are provided “as a service”,[2] allowing users to access technology-enabled services from the Internet ("in the cloud")[3] without knowledge of, expertise with, or control over the technology infrastructure that supports them.[4] According to the IEEE Computer Society, "It is a paradigm in which information is permanently stored in servers on the Internet and cached temporarily on clients that include desktops, entertainment centers, table computers, notebooks, wall computers, handhelds, etc."[5]! ! • Cloud computing is a general concept that incorporates software as a service (SaaS), Web 2.0 and other recent, well-known technology trends, in which the common theme is reliance on the Internet for satisfying the computing needs of the users. For example, Google Apps provides common business applications online that are accessed from a web browser, while the software and data are stored on the servers.

  7. 7. ...Or some figures? • Merrill Lynch said $160 Bn (CC)! • IDC said $42Bn by 2012 (CC) - After MSFT Azure I saw $60 Bn! • Gartner said $3.4 Trillion (overal IT)! • How to relate numbers to real figures in this Real-Time Global Economy?*
  8. 8. Cloud Computing: The Technology Bailout Plan? • What would John Maynard Keynes say?! • What would Milton Friedman & Anna Jacobsen Shwartz say?! • What would Kondratieff say?! • What would you say?
  9. 9. Why will it last longer? • World Economy is not about to get healthier soon enough - Deleveraging to hit other core businesses - Carry Trade/Carry Risk!! • We need to listen to Kondratieff! • Markets will have to adapt pragmatic & conservative approach
