Slow but Steady March to the Cloud
cloud rollout will be a long-term process over many years, but I think it's
unstoppable. It's important to recognize that the cloud is more than just
electronics. It's also people who understand how to operate in this new world.
Executives and workers must understand. That's part of the process that slows
down adoption -- people learning new skills.
6:12 AM PT
cloud is an idea that actually has been with us for many years before we gave it
the name "cloud." All of a sudden, it is growing into a large and
important space. Most companies are dipping their toes in the cloud -- however,
many corporate customers are going only so far. Why the delay?
of the unknown is one reason. No doubt the cloud is going to be the way we do
things in the future. However, the road to that future is full of bumps and
turns. There is also an important element of trust that is just not there yet.
have been high-profile problems with the cloud in recent years from big
brand-name players. Sometimes cloud services go down, in part or in whole.
Sometimes outages affect all of a company's stored information and other times
just part of it. Sometimes they affects users' ability to access their data.
are also security threats that companies are concerned about. These factors are
creating the element of fear they have in jumping all-in to the cloud.
areas where companies are testing are less vital areas of their business.
However, key parts are still cloud-free and staying that way for a while.
will see the cloud space continue to grow, but only for less sensitive areas of
a business' operations. That's why the cloud rollout will continue in fits and
starts over coming years. Parts of a company will go online while other parts
stay far away.
are seeing the cloud space really start to grow with competitors like Oracle,
Salesforce, SAP, Microsoft, HP, Amazon, Cisco, IBM and many others.

Kagan: Wireless Industry Wave Changing Industry
By Jeff Kagan

Mentioned: BBRY NOK AAPL GOOG
Nokia, smartphones apps, Apple waves, Motorola, Samsung tablets
wireless industry has grown and changed many times over the last few decades. In
fact, every five to ten years there is a major transformation that changes the
trajectory of the industry. Growth continues, but on a new track. And this kind
of change is starting to happen again.
last major shift was to super smartphones and tablets that we all take for
granted today. It was only a few short years ago this wave of change occurred.
The iPhone was introduced in 2007, and the iPad in 2010.
this dramatic change we have been experiencing with smartphones, tablets and a
gazillion apps is only a few years old. That’s incredible to stop and think
that point Blackberry (BBRY) and
Nokia (NOK) lead the wireless handset space. There were only a few hundred apps.
However once the iPhone and Android were launched, they ravaged the status quo.
leaders like Blackberry and Nokia suddenly had the rug ripped out from under
leaders in the smartphone and tablet space are Apple (AAPL) , Google (GOOG) ,
and Samsung with the vast majority of market share in every new category. And
there are roughly one million apps.
was recently interviewed by the Wall Street Journal and said that I think Apple
will remain a powerhouse because of it’s market share, but it may not see
another growth wave as big and bold as the last several years with their iPhone.
