The future of cloud computing
Predictions say that by 2020, most people will not be doing their work with software running on a general-purpose PC. Instead, they will work in Internet-based applications such as Google Docs, and in applications run from smartphones. The majority of technology experts and stakeholders participating in the fourth Future of the Internet survey claim that by 2020 most people will access software applications online and share and access information through the use of remote server networks, rather than depending primarily on tools and information housed on their individual, personal computers. They say that cloud computing will become more dominant than the desktop in the next decade.
