“Cloud Computing: Vision or Reality”

Past week I flew to Lisbon to participate in a Cloud Computing Event from IDC: “Managed Services, Outsourcing & Cloud Computing”. The place they chose to host it was the “Centro Cultural De Belém”, which is located on a beautiful neighbourhood. If you don’t happen to know Lisbon, as I don’t, I can promise you will be surprised :).

My talk was a pretty conceptual one covering the following topics:

  1. The deep economic forces that drive this paradigm shift. A clear understanding of them is key when we want to design a successful business strategy in which Cloud Computing Services or Technologies might be involved.
  2. Demystifying technological adoption processes. No matter if you are a believer or an skeptic. It is a complex phenomenon that we all have to understand to be able to filter out information about markets.
  3. Looking into the future to figure out the role of Cloud Computing.
  4. Look inside the Technologies involved. No matter which role we have on this game: we need to know.

Here you have the slides of my presentation. Hope you like it and, as usual, don’t hesitate to comment whatever you consider relevant. I would love to hear your feedback! 😀.

Last, but not least, I would like to thank Simon Wardley for his support and contribution to this work. His brilliant analysis is the one that successfully explains, in an easy and approachable way, which are those deep economic forces and how they interact. In my humble opinion, his contribution is key to fully understand this paradigm shift we all are living.
