Cloud computing provides a great list of benefits to large companies and users all over the world, from providing scalability on demand services to empowering the mobility of the workforce. However, the path to adoption for small and medium size businesses (SMBs) is less clear. This is why I’ve outlined some key considerations for SMBs looking to migrate to a cloud computing infrastructure.
The guys from Evolve IP, a cloud services company, recently conducted a survey of over 1,200 IT professionals to learn how their businesses are adopting cloud services in 2014. After reviewing the study, I decided there are some very interesting findings that help predict the future of cloud adoption, and it would be interesting to share it here.
When it comes to new frontiers in business and technology, one area that has business leaders rushing in is the Internet of Things (IoT). Basically, the Internet of Things connects everyday objects with each other and the Internet.
There are plenty of helpful and promising applications in this space, and large companies are already experimenting with ways to turn into profits. However, startups usually have more freedom to generate new ideas, and the key remains coming up with the right ideas, having the right team and receiving financial backing from investors.
The use of cloud computing for custom-built, mission-critical enterprise applications is just beginning, but both the technology and mind-set are already influencing enterprise application architectures and delivery.
Smartwatches have been around for quite a while now, but these devices are mostly seen as a nice-to-have addition, rather than a must to have gadget. However, recently Apple presented its own product, the Apple Watch. How will this product impact the smartwatch market? Does Apple have another hit on their hands and will they manage to make the smartwatch mainstream?
Before examining the benefits of cloud-based application development, it’s important to understand the core features needed in a strong application development and delivery platform. And by that I mean platforms that can be used to build applications ranging from internally focused web and mobile-based portals for human resources to powerful, customized business-critical apps that represent corporate systems of record.
