Today in Cloud

Gartner’s Brian Prentice has got it right. Google merely announced its intention to develop an operating system, and the frenzy actually fed itself. The reality, of course, is that we have no real idea what Chrome OS will look like, and there is no guarantee Microsoft won’t counter with a better product of its own. And while Chrome OS very definitely could drastically alter consumers’ use of web (or cloud) apps, it will not affect business computing any time soon. Much more impactful right now – and much less covered – are the new enterprise-grade features in Google Apps.
