Press Panel at All About the Cloud SIIA Conference

I attended the press panel at this week’s All About the Cloud SIIA Conference in San Francisco.  While there was some general negativity towards cloud computing hype, there was consensus on the inevitability of the market shift to the model.

Kara Swisher from the Wall Street Journal was particularly outspoken (and entertaining). I would definitely attend any panel that includes her as a participant in the future! You can check out the #AATC tag to find some of the musings. I jotted a few quotes down as well. To paraphrase from the panelists..

“CIOs are notoriously obstructive to anything that’s innovative.”

“Cloud will be led by CEOs.”

“It’s not that I’m optimistic about the cloud, it’s that it’s inevitable.”

“The cloud is like penicillin. This is what you’re going to be using now. “

“Who buys CDs, other than some old dude in my neighborhood?”

“It’s like a horse and buggy clinging to dirt roads.”
