Abstract

Everyone is talking about The Cloud. From disrupting the way we do business to the way we live our lives, it has undoubtedly shifted the way we think about computing, IT operations, innovation, and entrepreneurship. But how should we think about it and why has it brought a paradigm change? What specific technologies can we leverage to improve our lives and how will the next iteration of cloud-based systems look like?
