I was recently interviewed by Business in Vancouver for an article on Cloud Computing.
Here is a snippet from the interview:
Although cloud computing has existed for a number of years, Microsoft Corp., Google and other IT heavyweights only recently began applying the label to their services.
Adam Killam, an Internet marketing consultant, noted that that Salesforce.com Inc. â€“ a company that delivers a customer management service over the Internet and whose name is synonymous with cloud computing â€“ was founded in 1999.
At that time, only larger companies had the connectivity required for cloud computing.
â€œNow the everyday mom-and-pop shop â€¦ can use an application thatâ€™s being used by some of the biggest businesses in the world,â€ said Killam, founder of the Vancouver Salesforce.com User Group.
â€œYou pay your $65 a month or whatever it is â€¦ and you get the same features and functionality that J.P. Morgan has.â€
