Everything as a Service: Powering the New Information Economy
March 2011 (vol. 44 no. 3)
pp. 36-43
The mobility/cloud ecosystem aims to deliver infrastructure, platforms, and software as a service, enabling more people to benefit from ubiquitous information access. The culmination of 10 years' research converges on-demand applications with the infrastructure—servers, storage, networks, and client devices—to support cloud computing.
