In the last few years cloud computing has become the topic du jour for IT professionals and just about everyone else. In spite of the recent explosion of cloud computing’s popularity as a discussion topic, cloud computing itself has evolved over a long period of time.
An article at thoughtsoncloud.com explains why Darwin’s theory of evolution can be appropriately applied to software like ERP cloud, and that its creation was not spontaneous.
We all know computers have come a long way over the last 50 years. The trend since the very early days has been moving toward physically smaller, faster, cooler and lighter machines. And in the 1990’s the client server model emerged. While it failed to take off, it can be seen as an ancestor to the kind of cloud computing which we see today. The office networks of the 1980’s are the ancestor before that, and so on.
The moral of the story is, cloud technology has been rigorously tested over time by users as it was developed and continues to evolve and improve every day.
