Watching the Gillmor Gang on my Apple TV is big fun. The Gang is tearing out verbal pearls “en masse”, you just have to grab them. But to write them down can be hard.
Never less, here at 40:50 into the show, is Keith Teare, more or less as I could hear him, trying to describe our new IT paradigm, finishing a long discussion on MS Surface:
It feels to me like, Salesforce and companies that have build cloud services, are going been impacted by the shift as well.
The iPad got enough storage to turn the cloud to a message queue. All of the processing being done on the iPad, but without getting rid of the sales-teams being connected to each other. The cloud will kind-of form like a glue.
This is the new architecture: Pushing functionality out of the cloud into the device, while the cloud still remains crucial, but different.
Salesforce will be very hard pushed to change its architecture to move into that vehicle, impacted of the cloud, of the growth of the decentralized device-centric, but connected mobile world.
Once again it was Teare who did the best formulation of the week’s Gang!
