  1. Cloud-based computing software is a new technology which businesses are embracing. Not everyone fully understands the capabilities of the software, but people should be aware that utilizing cloud computing could give their company a competitive edge in their industry. It’s great seeing people offer webinars, such as this one, providing information on how to implement strategies using the software. My equipment leasing company has realized the potential of cloud computing and we have been working with businesses all over the United States to finance cloud-based computing software. I believe this is something that may become a new standard for businesses everywhere in the future.

  2. Less exciting than Big Data, but far more relevant to the average employee of most firms. PaaS is going to make us look back at installing apps like we think about phone cords.

  3. “Next?” Microsoft has been doing PaaS for a few years, well, and they were criticized for not providing IaaS until recently.
