Cloud computing from Dell has been a mouth-watering prospect for tech geeks for a few years now. It is viewed by many as next wave of information technology for individuals, companies and governments. It is also seen as the biggest revolution in how we share information electronically since the birth of the internet.
So, just what can be achieved with all this extra storage space? How can businesses benefit going forward and what can we expect from it in the future? The Cloud World Forum was held in London recently where all this and more filled the agenda. To get a flavour of what was being discussed check out Dell’s video to hear industry leaders give their views.
One thing that is not in dispute is that the cloud’s popularity is all set to grow both in business and in our day-to-day lives. Here are some of the ways we can expect it to shape the future and improve our day to day lives.
Classrooms are already embracing the cloud and its many benefits. It allows students to access data anywhere and anytime to participate in group activities and makes it easier to enrol for classes online or for other organisational programs needed for school.
Computing will become invisible
Pretty soon computers and software will become “invisible” in that they are hidden from view. We may simply have to make gestures and a camera will interpret those and provide us what we need, or we simply have to say it. If all this seems a bit James Bond, the capabilities of cloud computing make it a realistic ambition in the not too distant future.
Gaming will become popular with everyone
The cloud offers to enhance all areas of technology and none more so than in gaming. Gamers have been marvelling at demos with complex 3-D graphics delivered to mobile devices through the cloud. While some technical wrinkles remain, players can now enjoy breathtaking gaming experiences anywhere because of the cloud’s power to provide higher speed without interruption.
Improve decision making
The cloud allows you to process large amounts of data from just about anywhere, even just with the use of a Smartphone. You can combine data and streams of information to inform your decisions, research any topic and make smarter decisions with your analysed data.
