Ray Ozzie was reported in the IDG News Service late last week, in one of his rare outings with the Media on his views of Cloud Computing and the appetite for it by the Enterprise Sector.
In essence he believes that the first wave of adoption by Corporates will be the transition of Email and Collaboration technologies to this mode of operation, and this makes perfect sence.
The competition is clearly eyeing both of these solution spaces with offerings from IBM’s Lotus with Lotus Live – Email, and Lotus Live – Engage; as well as Google with GMail and Google Apps.
Talk to any one of these vendors and they will have their complete “Cloud Ready” spiel at hand, and all of their offerings have their marketing engines winding up well beyond the “Beta” messaging often being used.
