The Economist — Let It Rise

The Econ­o­mist has released a spe­cial report enti­tled, Let It Rise (it’s a pdf file) and it’s all about cloud com­put­ing.  Specif­i­cally, the rise of it.

Here’s why I want you to read it.

  • Data cen­tres are quickly evolv­ing into ser­vice factories
  • Soft­ware will be trans­formed into a com­bi­na­tion of services
  • The cloud’s com­mu­ni­ca­tions with its clients will become ever more intel­li­gent and interactive
  • As IT gets cloudier, the eco­nom­ics of the busi­ness will change
  • The cloud will make busi­nesses more adapt­able, inter­con­nected and spe­cialised — and often smaller
  • The cloud may be the ulti­mate form of globalisation

Pretty, game-changing uh?  Read the report to get a sense of how your busi­ness can pre­pare for what’s to come.

Oh, one more thing.

If you’d read my post about restruc­tur­ing your mar­ket­ing around Twit­ter and have a deep inter­est in microblog­ging, micromes­sag­ing or microshar­ing tools (dif­fer­ent strokes for dif­fer­ent folks) for the enter­prise, you’re in luck!

Pis­ta­chio Con­sult­ing has a new report out, which explores and com­pares a vari­ety of microshar­ing tools for the enter­prise.  Highly recommended.

Click here to visit the page which will offer you a num­ber of ways to view the report.  Or, you could just down­load the PDF file, here.
