In the future–perhaps sooner than you think–you’ll probably be able to satisfy every computing need without a single application on your own hard drive. All of your data, from LMS and CMS data to family records–will be stored online in enormous data centers.
Cloud computing, which includes technology trends like Web 2.0 and SaaS, is drawing in more and more companies, including its pioneers like Amazon, Google, Yahoo! and Salesforce but also now Microsoft, Adobe, and IBM. Being able to access your LMS or online courseware on an application-free smartphone is a cloud concept. So is the idea that you don’t need any particular program or application to use your LMS or access your online courseware. But is the cloud a safe place for your data? Time will tell.
