Cloud is too often used as a blanket term for anything that is “hosted” on the Internet. To get a more valuable take on cloud, I reached out to three technology innovators and asked them how they see “the cloud” affecting careers and required skills sets in their industries.
Wikipedia defines Cloud (Computing):
- “In common usage, the term “the cloud” is essentially a metaphor for the Internet.
- Marketers have further popularized the phrase “in the cloud” to refer to software, platforms and infrastructure that are sold “as a service”, i.e. remotely through the Internet.
- In computer networking, cloud computing involves a large number of computers connected through a communication network such as the Internet.”
