Our resident podcaster Scott Laningham caught up with Cloudcamp founder and unconference expert Dave Nielsen earlier this week. Dave, who is chief instigator of the IBM Impact Unconference detailed just what makes cloud computing so vital and necessary at this point in time. He suggests that cloud computing draws together four threads summed up by the OSSM acronym:
As he points out to Scott, these in themselves are not new but it is the confluence of these concepts that really defines cloud computing. Check out the whole interview.
I'm looking forward to finding out more about the current state of cloud computing during the WebSphere unconference sessions coming up on Thursday.
Hopefully we'll see you there! And remember, if you are tweeting about the unconference to use the hashtags #IBMImpact and #Unconf.
