The Future is the Cloud as the Enterprise Core

GigaOM posted a great article

RIP, the server. It’s time to breathe the air of cloud connection

It is about the transition from on premise computing to the cloud. We will still see organizations cling to their traditional approach of controlling their compute resources. However, this is increasingly like the time when people ran their own electricity generators. Now we just flick the switch to turn on the lights.

This transition is not without challenges. Security, Monitoring and Auditing have to be a priority. There will be bumps in the road as people make the transition but we are also moving from a business word where we focused internally to one where we create virtual teams to achieve a result. Those virtual teams spread beyond the traditional boundaries of the enterprise and in that environment it is essential that we have the tools at our disposal to share information and work together on documents. Email is no longer a suitable tool.

Welcome to the Cloud as the Enterprise Core.
