We are more than happy to have Stephen O’Grady (@sogrady), co-founder of the developer-focused technology analyst firm RedMonk, on the Agenda talking about Understand the Cloud and the New Kingmakers.

What is a king maker?

A king maker is a person or group of persons of great influence in political or royal successions, without being a feasible candidate. They are more coated and acting in the background but are more influential than anybody else.

After the rise of several tech companies straight away to the top of the world’s most valuable firms, economists, researchers and analysts are trying to understand what made them successful.

Technology adoption today is bottom up

The reality shows a huge gap between what IT Decision Makers think is being used and what is actually being used. And it is fueled by the cloud.

“EC2 means anyone with a $10 bill can rent a 10-machine cluster
with 1TB of distributed storage for 8 hours.” – Flip Kromer

The cloud empowers developers to go beyond classical frameworks. Education, Collaboration, Open Source, Marketplaces powered by the cloud. Development languages, Standards, Server Adoption cross domains.
