Top 5 #Cloud Tweets of the Week – February 8, 2013

While there was a blackout at the Super Bowl last week, there is no blackout for the Top 5 Cloud Tweets of the Week.  This edition includes Tweets on:

  • How the Cloud will/is changing our lives
  • How to explain the Cloud to your spouse
  • Cloud in healthcare
  • A potential Cloud solution to email overload and
  • Data from a KMPG Cloud Study. 

Also, the site is NEW and IMPROVED, now including links to the articles – just click on the Tweet images.

Tweet #1 – Short and sweet Tweet leads to a great list (always love those lists).

  • Computers will become invisible, isn’t that happening now?
  • Language barriers will fade – what does that mean for Rosetta Stone?
  • Companies will use more suppliers – business partners use the Cloud to coordinate activities over a secure platform.  Sounds like a sweet spot for Ariba.

Tweet #2 – If anyone needs help explaining the Cloud to their spouse, significant other, parents, aunts, uncles or kids, here you go.

Tweet #3 – Not the most creative Tweet, but when I see the words Cloud and Healthcare together, bells go off.  Take a look at the article and see the benefits:

  • Cost – Storing medical data on the Cloud is 10X cheaper than buying additional hardware
  • Access – Doctors have universal access to patient data – anytime, anyplace


Tweet #4 – I would bet that everyone reading this is experiencing email overload.  Clicking through to the article, an application called Sendgine
is highlighted with its project based system. Might be worth a try.


Tweet #5Interesting survey data from KPMG.  “Organizations must realize that moving to the Cloud is not like flipping a switch.”  Agree 100% – any analyst, vendor or pundit who says otherwise is mistaken.

Survey Data Snippets (the glass is half full)

  • More than 50% of organizations working in the Cloud
  • 33% of respondents say costs of moving to Cloud higher than expected
  • 31% of respondents note that integrating existing IT with Cloud is creating challenges
  • 30% of respondents are concerned about data security


Have a good week/weekend and for folks in the Northeastern US, stay safe as a blizzard roars up the coast.
