Why “Cloud” Development Will Change The World Back 18-24 months ago, the three primary application stores for mobile devices passed the One Million total available application milestone. Today, we have moved well beyond that total and there is no stopping the growth. What however is happening is that applications are built and thrown out for consumption without some of the standards that would benefit the users of the applications.

The Death of “The Death Of the PC Era” For months, we have seen news reporting the impending doom of the personal computer. This prediction is somewhat unnerving for those who grew up in the era when we bought our first pickup trucks for less than the cost of a popular pair of “athletic shoes”.

The Cloud: The Gift That Keeps On Printing…. Smartphones and tablets are increasingly replacing functions usually carried out by laptops in our professional life. Mobile e-mail access is now a relatively mature technology and mobile printing additionally gives users the opportunity to print documents directly via their mobile phone.

Past Predictions in the Automotive Cloud Gradually Evolving to Reality Many of the predictions in the automotive sector that happened in previous years are evolving into a competitive reality. They are becoming more practical than one probably thought they could be. However, some are taking an about turn and making a leap for the better or for worse. It is the latter that will start this discussion, beginning with the emergence of the powerful brand-based cloud over that of dealers. Dealer Cloud-into-Brand Cloud Some of the major predictions of past years were that the information systems that were available in
