Capgemini CTO blog: Cloud Computing interest is growing



Here we have Cap Gemini's CTO talking about Cloud Computing:

The real moves I want to keep an eye on are the tie up between the big boys Intel, HP, Yahoo and some good academic computing centres with the aim of building a really large scale test bed for testing and experimenting with Cloud Computing. The challenge with Cloud Computing is that the ‘business case’ is compelling, and I don’t just mean costs, I mean as a method to deliver the kind of Web 2.0, Enterprise 2.0, Business Technology solutions that offer some real new business value.

Many of these solutions will eventually require ‘Orchestration’ between services to take place in a Cloud Computing environment. Put another way the environment will be expected to support a lot of previously untried combinations of activities on the basis that all of them subscribe to the same common principles. Right now, you couldn’t say that we have those principles well enough defined for this to have a sporting chance. That’s what interests me about this project and its trials.
