The buzz: Cloud. Three technology visionaries meet to gaze into the cloud. What do their expert eyes see?
Jeff Kaplan, THINKstrategies: “In my view, the cloud computing marketplace will change rapidly in the coming year.”
Jorge Garcia, TEC: “In the Age of Analytics, as products and services become ‘lighter’ (i.e., less physical and more digital), manufacturing and distribution costs—while still important—will be augmented with new metrics—the costs of know, the flow of know, and the costs of not knowing.” (Thornton May, futurist, IT Leadership Academy)
Tim Minahan, SAP: “Businesses found religion in the cloud in 2013. And there is no doubt that the cloud will become more prevalent in all aspects of the business and IT stack in 2014. Yet, adoption approaches and cloud environments will look far different over the coming year than they have in the past…In short, 2014 will likely go down as the year where business got smart about the cloud.”
