Re: Life in the clouds is imminent
The future trend will the consistent experience of apps everywhere, no matter what kind of device I am using. We can use portable BYOD such as tablet or a min-book. By virtue of cloud computing and web technology, I can rely on browser to trigger all my apps. Thanks to the technology such as AJAX and cloud computing - they made it possible that the end user do not need powerful end device to use all kinds of apps to do their work.

John Considine, CTO, Verizon Terremark, notes that the consumerization of IT and improvements by cloud service providers to make it easier for enterprises to transition to cloud services all add up to making 2014 a big year for cloud adoption.

But many may have overlooked this fact: The federal government awarded more that $17 BILLION in cloud computing contracts over the past (fiscal) year.  Not all of that will go for external or fully hybrid services, but there's little question, cloud adoption has already been picking up steam but some of the nation's largest public enterprises.
