I must admit the concept of Cloud Integration frankly kind of cracks me up.
We’ve been doing cloud integration forever.
Any time you have two pieces of technology that need to communicate with one another
you have to integrate the two you have to learn how to work with them and it wasn’t until about five or six years ago that they came up with his marketing concept called Cloud.
And people started coming to us saying well what’s this cloud thing all about and I’m like.. really?
Did you ever use a dial up with AOL and they hosted your email?
Well, you were using the cloud. You go to www. something that’s the cloud we’ve had it forever well nineteen nineties forever but we’ve had it for a very long time.
But now we have the marketing term called the Cloud, it’s this big mysterious thing and it can do so many neat things for you.
Well, yeah it can there’s a lot of benefits for cloud but it’s still the same technology we have always been working with.
Virtualization, high speed Internet you know connections with connectivity between applications and things. It’s all still the same, it still needs be administered, it still needs to be configured, it still needs to be worked with and there are some amazing benefits they come to it but it’s not the scary thing of this cloud element.
It’s just technology, same as as always been.
