Description:

The term ‘Cloud Computing’ has a range of definitions, some of which are mutually incompatible. This talk will review the term and distinguish spin from technology (the cloud from the cloud-wash), looking at the history of development of cloud technologies, the impact of cloud as a disruptive technology within the IT marketplace, commercial considerations when assessing a cloud solution and cloud as a driver of cultural and social change across the globe.
