Lately Iâve been hearing some rumblings during my various discussions around cloud computing. Some in the industry have been quietly saying the end is near for the much over hyped term. I wouldnât go as far as to say the cloud is dead just yet, but there is a growing sense that interest in cloud computing, at least from the point of view of a buzz word, has peaked.
