Interesting, but perhaps not fully accurate, first read of the emerging cloud-centric model from the NYT.
We are seeing a new business ecosystem with all sorts of mobile and cloud-connected devices. Each is a powerful computer, with connections to a nearly infinite amount of data storage and processing in the cloud.
“We’re entering this era where consumer electronics is the hardware, and the software and the cloud,” said Matt Hershenson, Google’s hardware director. His view increasingly holds for business computing, too.
This is a world where broadband connectivity can be assumed. We need to think through the way it will manifest in our world, where that assumption does not necessarily hold.
