2012: The Year of Cloud Commuting

A session at CloudBeat 2011

Thursday 1st December, 2011

11:15am to 12:10pm (PST)

2011 has seen the convergence of several technological advances with an acceptance of new ways of work, all culminating in a new trend dubbed “cloud commuting”. Phones and tablets have increased their functionality significantly, while maintaining ease of use, all at low prices and with solid vendor eco-systems. This includes applications for just about anything (including productivity apps, print from anywhere services , or tablet BI tools). Add to that the advancements made in cloud services from file sharing to mobile enterprise (location based) solutions and just about every software vendor. Combine this with mass acceptance and adoption of a mobile workforce, whether it’s simply working from the road, or fully telecommuting, and you have the ingredients for a huge new trend, cloud commuting. We’ll discuss this convergence, the larger vendor ecosystem, and strategies for implementing this in environments from small to enterprise sized companies. 2012 is the year of Cloud Commuting, as people work from their homes in virtually any city or even any country.
