Uncovering the True Value of Cloud Computing (A 3-Day Series)

First, let’s think about the internet. Have we learned the real benefits of it?

In 1969, the internet was started at the University of California, Los Angeles. It grew dramatically in the 1990s, as the public saw that the internet connected their computers to facilitate the exchange of information and helped improve manageability. Yet they may never have imagined how the internet would change the world over the next two decades.

We are living in the world of internet! Yet we are still cultivating the new values of the internet, just like digging an enormous gold mine. New innovations continue to emerge. Even today, we can not define how much we can really benefit from the internet.

Similarly, cloud computing heated up only a few years ago. The technology still needs defining, the public, educating, and the market, stabilizing. With so many uncertainties, can we really foresee what impacts cloud computing will make? Can we understand the real benefits of cloud computing? Well…we can’t, because we don’t know what we don’t know!
