Bibliomotion, 2012 more...
Keep your feet on the ground and wrap your head around the cloud – the “hyperconnected” future.
The ancient Greek mathematician Pythagoras once said, “Above the cloud with its shadow is the star with its light,” an appropriate metaphor for coming to grips with the field of cloud computing, a confusing topic for many business professionals. Even management consultant Thomas M. Koulopoulos, an expert, spends his manual’s first 25 pages defining the cloud. He cautions readers that the cloud is neither synonymous with the Internet nor an offsite data center where you stash pictures and documents. getAbstract recommends his admirable explanation of how the “hyperconnectivity” of the cloud will influence how people work, play, learn, innovate and socialize in the near future. This guidebook will offer you clear, starry skies to help you navigate the cloud.
In this summary, you will learn
- How to optimize your firm’s use of the cloud
- How the cloud will affect how people live, work, learn, create and play
- How to appreciate and exploit the opportunities in the cloud, today and in the future
