The first six lectures of the current 7DEE series on "Getting Clued In to the Cloud" looked at the principles and practicalities, the advantages and disadvantages, of cloud for enterprise. We've drilled down into different types of cloud -- public, private, hybrid -- and different service models -- SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS.
Remember, you can review all of these materials in the 7DEE archive.
What's left to consider is the future. Where is cloud computing taking us, and how is it going to alter the terrain, not only of IT, but of the enterprise in general? How will cloud affect the way we work, the way we do business, and the way we think about technology and connectivity?
These are some of the questions that will be addressed in our last lecture today. Find out what's heading our way, in the company of Craig Sowell. Craig is Vice President for IBM SmartCloud and Managed Services Marketing. He oversees the overall IBM market and brand management for IBM's Cloud Computing business. You could hardly find a better source for an overview of the cloud computing future.
