Greengard, S. 2010, ‘Cloud computing and developing nations Communications of the ACM’, Vol 53.5.pp.18-20
In this journal, Greengard has illustrated about the importance, potential and achievement of cloud computing (pp. 18-19). And also about the limitation, challenges and problems of cloud computing (p.20). He has also disclosed about the use and value of cloud computing in the current situation and future (pp.18-19) and the opportunity provided by it. Greengard also uttered that it has also helped to carry impossible task with limited errors and resources. He also believed that cloud computing act as a catalyst for the innovation and development of developing nations (p.20).
According to Greengard, cloud computing has attracted himself and the whole world due to its possibilities and ...view middle of the document...
Large companies are increasing their computing centres continuously in various parts of the world i.e. Google, IBM, Microsoft) (p.18). Greengard has provided numbers of examples such as: In Sahel (Sahara region), farmers are getting information about harvesting time, plants and nutrition details and about price in the tip of their hand(mobile) and In India, large companies are helping their members by providing computing services and software and this all was possible due to cloud computing(p.19). A software product developing in one country can be modified and spread out by other developers in different countries without any loss of data and resource.
Greengard is quite amazed by the system which allows organization to break down services and system into smaller pieces and can be used separately and independently in a widely distributed network. The system and the interfaces of a servers can be modified and remould on the go almost anywhere. Baryamureeba (cited Greengard 2010) believes that cloud computing are game changing technology.
Greengard yields a significant number of examples of the implementation of cloud computing in the various part of the world and proves that it is helping developing nations to compete with other nations and has provided powerful infrastructure to the human race (people) which is helping them to complete their task effectively and accurately in affordable way.
This journal is aimed at all the people mostly related to technology. It uses clear language with various examples and important dictum of the people in the whole journal.
In summary, the author’s purpose is to illustrate the potential and impact of cloud computing for the people and nations and it acts as game changing and blooming technology. The author also encourages people or developing nation to compete to become productive.
