Cloud Client Computing

The most common mistakes that are made are: ordering too much computing power, no shutting down the software in off hours, not using monitoring tools to keep tabs on cycles, and not telling programmers about the costs. Companies such as Netflix have written software that automatically shuts the system down during off-peak hours, but many companies who are not as large in size do not have the means to do this. When these things are not done, the costs of cloud computing soar making the idea of the cloud not as cost beneficial as previously thought. Still, the cloud market is expected to grow 23% a year through 2017.
In the world, there are more than 2 billion devices connected to Internet and majority of them are smartphones. CEOs must think every change in technology to keep their firms in the business. CEO if Parkmobile, Cherie Fuzzell states that they can’t rely on their current app or services, technology changes every day and they should keep considering all the changes, otherwise they won’t survive in the business.
IBM has decided to invest in faster-growth segments such as cloud, analytics, mobile, social and security technologies. Those businesses generated $25 billion in revenue last year, or 27% of total revenue, though the trend line has been rising for both figures. The $4 billion spending has set a new financial target for those faster-growth segments: $40 billion in combined annual revenue by 2018, or more than 40% of the company’s expected total revenue.
The trend is Cloud/Client Computing. It describes concentrating on cloud and mobile computing with the aim of promoting the development of applications that are centrally coordinated and thus be delivered to any device. The first article by Boulton talks of the wastes that are associated with cloud computing. The second one by an anonymous writer is about the mobile devices that are connected to a cloud and the third one.
