The Inevitable and Recent Article about Moving to the Cloud
Filed under: Observ. Trends, Alternate Career Paths
Posted by: site admin @ 10:46 am

The recent article in CEN on Cloud Computing in the Pharmaceutical
industry
was on point for the some of the trends that Kevin Kelly
pointed out in his recent book The Inevitable.

.
Essential things that readers of the CEN article should be aware
of that Kelly documents include:
  1.   Existence in the digital realm is chiefly MAINTENANCE.  The
more complex the gear, the more attention it will require.  Upgrade
this and you need upgrades everywhere.
   1.a.  The cycle of obsolescence is accelerating, you will never have
time to master anything.
    2.   There are ERAS of this Internet Cloud Computing.  Think about
how we employ hyperlinks, interrogate large data troves, carefully
curate processes and “platforms.”. [Platforms favor services and access.]
     3.   Great QUESTIONS create new territories of thinking and lead
to the need to FORECAST with more possible outcomes.
.
Readers are encouraged to pick up and read Kevin Kelly’s book that
looks at the unrecognized present and optimistic future integrated
via cloud resources.
