EasyBib Idea Sketch iPad App Fills Killer Enterprise Need: Collaboration in the Cloud CIO — One reason that business people love the iPad is because it's so darn easy to use. Just whip it out and get a little work done on the iPad whenever there's a little downtime, which often means collaborating on projects, whether it's the presentations that look so good on the iPad display, or routine work documents. "It's not unusual for me (in one country), an employee in Europe and another in Japan all to be working on a project," says Lance Locher, senior vice president of Total Traffic Network, a division of Clear Channel that delivers traffic data to the company's radio and television stations and other outlets. Locher, an avid iPad owner, taps the power of collaboration in the cloud with an app called Box. Like the iPad itself, Box is a simple file sharing tool and cloud storage service built for the enterprise. Collaboration in the cloud just might be the iPad's killer enterprise app. "The ease-of-use becomes even more prevalent in this version," Locher says. Continue Reading

Report: Cloud Computing Catching On in Emerging Markets While cloud computing gains steadily in the U.S., U.K. and Germany (and rather slowly in Canada ), it's taking off in emerging markets like Brazil, China and India. According to a study by GfK Custom Research, and covered by FineChannel , cloud computing enjoys relatively high penetration rate in emerging markets, regardless of company size. According to GfK, decision makers in Brazil, China and India have a much more positive view of cloud computing and cite cost-effectiveness, flexibility and security as the main benefits. In contrast, decision makers in the U.S. and the U.K. see security as a barrier rather than a strength, and view flexibility as the main advantage. But Fine Channel notes that data security is seen as a benefit by many in established markets as well. In addition to security, cost, including migration and subscription rates, is often seen as a barrier to adoption. Photo by Jeffrey Bell

Why the cloud must come back to earth Cloud services seem to have got hung up on providing applications, but the focus needs to shift back to network resources as services, says Lori MacVittie. In the early days of cloud computing all the enthusiasm was about the network, but that focus has been quickly eclipsed by the promise of easy application deployment. The end user has become the centre of attention. The call to provide business users with what were described as ways to circumvent unresponsive IT organisations grew louder, while calls for network infrastructure services were quickly drowned out. Of late, cloud computing seems to have stalled in its pursuit of the goal of IT as a service. It's time to step back and refocus on what needs to be accomplished if we're ever going to reach the top of this technological Mount Everest. Policies as services Those policies need to be delivered more like services than scripted configurations, and they need to be application-centric. Enabling services
