Cloud services on the cusp of 'explosive growth', expert says

Cloud computing is on the cusp of "explosive growth and rapid transformation", according to a technology organisation.

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has announced that it will be launching a new initiative to act as a catalyst of innovation.

Steve Diamond, chair of IEEE's Cloud Computing Initiative, said that there must be a flexible and common framework for interoperability for it to work and that IEEE hopes to develop this with its new scheme.

Cloud services are leaving technology on the edge of a "new age of innovation", said David Bernstein, the managing director of Cloud Strategy Partners.

He added: "Cloud computing will change everything. It is one of the three aspects of the 'perfect storm' of technology waves currently sweeping across humanity, the other two being massive deployment of very smart mobile devices, and ubiquitous high-speed connectivity."

Last week, the UK government said that it would be looking to use cloud hosting services over the coming years to help respond to changing operational needs.
