Cloud computing has now crossed its infancy stage and there are lesser concerns of security with the standards of each of the cloud application providers having matched industry standards. Each of the cloud service providers are competing on providing the best of the features to their clients and the ease of integration of their existing backend infrastructure to the cloud.
Cloud computing and applications would best benefit sectors like government, healthcare and education. To enable wide spread adoption in such dynamic and uncertain sectors, service providers need to now collaborate and agree to bring about a set of standard policy on which the cloud platform can be enabled. This will enable a larger set of applications to be developed by various stakeholders and also integrate them into the existing system much faster which would ultimately help in the wider use of cloud services for the early adopters.
These sectors would definitely help Cloud computing in crossing the chasm and lead to its wider adoption if the private players agree on a defined common standard and level the playing field for a larger number of services to emerge.
