Early Cloud Views for 2012

Posted on January 21st, by thinkstrategies in Uncategorized. Comments Off on Early Cloud Views for 2012

We are less than a month into the new year, and the Cloud Computing marketplace is already attracting more attention than ever. There have been more acquisitions, alliances and other activities surrounding a widening assortment of Cloud opportunities.

In addition to continuing to contribute commentaries to Datamation, E-Commerce Times, Internet Evolution and Sandhill.com, among others, I’ve been asked to also lend my perspective to two more online publications, APMdigest and TechWeb/UBM’s new IT Services site.

Here are my latest commentaries in these publications,

IT Services: Outsourcing Failures Drive More People to the Cloud, 01/20/12 

APMdigest: Three Tiers of Analytic Possibilities in the Cloud, 01/14/12 

E-Commerce Times: Building Synergistic Alliances in the Clouds, 01/13/12  

Internet Evolution: Google Goal for 2012: Changing You, 01/09/12 

You may have noticed that I’m also blogging on behalf of the IBM for Midsize Business program, which provides midsize businesses with the tools, expertise and solutions they need to become engines of a smarter planet.

Let me know if your company would like to leverage my writings, presentations and perspectives to capitalize on the rapidly evolving Cloud market.
