Presentation Overview Description
The word cloud computing brings more confusion than clarity for most people, with as many definitions as people responding to the questions “What is cloud computing?”. This presentation looks to demystify the cloud a little and look at the practical application the cloud may have and what implications this new wave of innovation may have on the tech sector and the economy as a whole.
