Why you should read Cloud Surfing
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.
