Thought Leaders In Cloud Computing: Introduction

Posted on Monday, Jul 26th 2010

By guest author Shaloo Shalini

Cloud computing is poised delicately on the peak of the Gartner Hype Cycle, holding a lot of promise but also characterized by several known limitations and unknowns. The sector is probably ready to slide down the trough of reality.

We are launching a new series – Thought Leaders in Cloud Computing (TLCC) – on this blog. As part of this series, Sramana is talking to top IT executives at various organizations to share their perceptions of how cloud computing is shaping the IT industry. Topics covered will include cloud adoption, cloud-based business models, private vs. public clouds, integration, standardization, security, new markets and opportunities, and others.

This series will cover the adoption of cloud across SMBs, mid-sized, and Fortune 500 companies from diverse verticals such as tech, finance, healthcare, government, and manufacturing. Most important, and as part of her 1M/1M global initiative, Sramana is brainstorming ideas on entrepreneurial opportunities in the cloud.

We hope that you will enjoy the series, and weigh in with your thoughts, ideas, and questions!

This segment is a part in the series : Thought Leaders In Cloud Computing
