Yesterday Deloitte named Cloud Computing as one of the ten most significant technology trends that will impact Canada in 2010.
Cloud computing: more than hype, but less than hyper — Cloud computing will grow faster than almost all other tech sectors, but it is not taking over the world quite yet. Concerns over reliability and security continue to make large enterprises and governments cautious about adopting cloud. In contrast, consumers and small enterprises are the logical early adopters, as the global cloud computing industry is predicted to grow almost 50% to $80 billion in 2010.
Most would say they didn’t exactly go out on a limb to make that prediction considering the rise of cloud computing over the last couple years – heck, even the BCTIA hosted a luncheon dedicated to the topic this week.
If you’re not quite ready to pay to learn more about the cloud, be sure to check out CloudCamp coming up on Saturday, March 13th.
CloudCamp is an unconference where early adopters of Cloud Computing technologies exchange ideas. With the rapid change occurring in the industry, we need a place where we can meet to share our experiences, challenges and solutions. At CloudCamp, you are encouraged to share your thoughts in several open discussions, as we strive for the advancement of Cloud Computing. End users, IT professionals and vendors are all encouraged to participate.
Save money, and be more agile and flexible through the power of cloud computing.
