Cloud Computing - It’s all in the Apps
In Part 3 of Bernard Golden's series on the cloud computing revolution, he discusses the emerging role of the App in cloud computing. As the development costs drop and the architecture allows lighter weight applications that process greater amounts of data (i.e. the Google handheld translator) it creates the perfect and profitable environment for App development. In short he argues that the cost effectiveness, ease of deployment, and architecture of cloud computing facilitates the exponential development of apps. Taken together it becomes a self-reinforcing dynamic. One need only look at the popularity of Apps on the iPhone and Android to see this dynamic in action.
