35 Trend and Prediction Lists for Cloud Computing in 2013

Cloud Smarter Planet Logo The last couple of days I have started sharing with you trends and predictions lists.  I’ve already posted “101 Technology Trends and Predictions Lists for 2013” and  “13 Virtualization Trends and Prediction Lists for 2013 “.  Today I share with you a list of articles and blog posts that contain predictions and top trends related to Cloud Computing.

The Cloud Computing term came on the scene back in 2008 and has been hot ever since.  Cloud Computing provides individuals and organizations with new options on how they acquire or deliver IT services, with reduced emphasis on the constraints of traditional infrastructures and the software/hardware licensing models that come with that traditional infrastructure.  Benefits include reduced costs, improved service delivery and agility to enable innovation.   It offers new opportunities, especially for new start-up competitors.

There are lots of people predicting what is going to happen in cloud computing, which is an indication it is still a big buzzword in the industry.  The list below is certainly not all the Cloud Computing trend lists that are out there, but there are enough for you to get feel for what 2013 might hold for Cloud Computing.
