Grazed from Diginomica. Author: Martin Banks.

If the natural and obvious `join’ between cloud services and mobile devices is to become not just possible but standard practice, then tools that accommodate those any and all of those devices as integral parts of cloud services have to become widely available. They are, at least. Now starting to appear.

Take, for example, the recently launched Toshiba Cloud Client Manager (TCCM) system, which first saw the light of day last year as a prototype plug in option for the company’s then new, on-premise Smart Client Manager. Since then it has been re-engineered as a stand-alone, modular, cloud-delivered system that will, as new modules appear, seek to provide a full systems and mobile data management (MDM) infrastructure to connect mobile clients to cloud services...

Mobile is where your customer is

We can conveniently say that we have left those days behind when mobile-enabled web presence played second fiddle to web usage via desktop.

Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst on the impact of cloud and mobile

Grazed from NetworkWorld. Author: Frederic Paul.

Last month, I wrote about what Red Hat CEO Jim Whitehurst had to say about applications finally overshadowing infrastructure. But the rise of apps is only one of the big changes roiling the IT landscape. Cloud computing has had an equally dramatic effect. Has the cloud already won? Yes… and no

So I asked Whitehurst if the cloud had already won the war for IT infrastructure, but he gave me a more nuanced response than I expected: “I think there’s a new architecture combining computing and storage in an easily managed centralized data center,” he said. “Scaling out that architecture… That’s clearly winning.”...

Smartphones, tablets and other gadgets aren't just changing the way we live and work. They are shaking up Silicon Valley's balance of power and splitting up businesses. Long-established companies such as Hewlett-Packard Co. and eBay Inc. are scrambling to regain their footing to better compete against mobile-savvy trendsetters like Apple and Google, as well as rising technology stars that have built businesses around "cloud computing."

That term covers a swath of Internet-driven services that shifted technology from the days software users paid a one-time fee to buy and install programs on individual machines where they also stored all their data on hard drives. But with the advent of the "cloud," people can now rent software to use over the Internet...
