Thanksgiving is always a good time to look back and reflect on the past year.
In addition to the food and family, the holiday gives everyone time to pause and think about what they are thankful for over the last months. At Enterprise Cloud News, we are thankful, of course, for the cloud. It's the reason why we're here. (See A CIO 'Renaissance' Needs the Cloud.)
However, the cloud means different things to different people. There's public and private cloud, not to mention multicloud and hybrid cloud. There are also a number of different services that are delivered through cloud: SaaS, PaaS, IaaS to name a few.
Since we're talking about cloud, what about the technologies that are being developed to take advantage of these new platforms: artificial intelligence, machine learning, automation, application monitoring, Internet of Things, big data analytics and many more. (See AI Likely to Outperform Humans in Less Than 50 Years.)
Should we be thankful for some of these, too?
So, as we sit back with our drumsticks, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie and beverage of choice today, let's think about what there is to be thankful for in the new world of cloud computing and how the technology is changing the way we do business, and how business is done.
