Behind every cloud service or cloud-based solution, there are real people...
A robust ecosystem of solutions providers has emerged around cloud computing.
But who are the CEOs & CTOs behind those providers, who are the internal and
external entrepreneurs driving companies involved in the Cloud, who are the
leading engineers, developers, analysts, researchers, marketing
professionals, authors...who, in short, are the people behind the cloud?
This list will be updated weekly between now and November 4-7, 2013, when
13th Cloud Expo | Cloud Expo Silicon Valley opens its doors in the Santa

I am always being told off by i-technologists for quoting Picasso as having
said that computers are useless. But I still love his reasoning? "Because
they can only give you answers."
Picasso, like AJAXWorld Magazine, liked questions. So we thought we would

The term Cloud Computing is getting a lot of air play these days — it is
the computing equivalent of a U.S. Presidential Election. It has loads of
twists and turns, plenty of eager participants, lots of money being spent on
it and it gets to consume large amounts of the news cycle...often without a
lot of new information. We are only just beginning to imagine what a true
Cloud-based Enterprise Application can mean in terms of the new business
model opportunities it will create.

With Yahoo shares down better than 15% in the two trading days since it

company, told Microsoft’s annual analyst meeting Thursday that “It’s
sort of, like, unbelievable….Nobody gets it.”

expansion just for doin... (more)
