I had a sort of epiphany whilst going through the LG Arena emulator regarding the future of cloud computing – the term refers to Line Of Business (LOB) applications or Software As A Service delivered over the net.
Googling the net came up with this link by Mr. Shankar Bharadwaj and Cloud Computing. He postulates that Silverlight and HTML 5 will provide the technologies to power the interfaces of cloud computing.
Building up on this further, my epiphany was that we can use gadgets / widgets as front-ends for the different web-services and like the Flash UI itself, have multiple screens based on our requirements e.g. business could be one of the screens, entertainment another and so forth.
This UI will be independent of platforms, OSes or technologies, so virtually you’ll be accessing the same interface whether it’s on the desktop or mobile phone.
What do you think?
