Michael Skok is a general partner at Northbridge Ventures. He spoke at the 2012 Future of Cloud Computing conference and provided us with survey results. I retained four key messages:
1) Mobility is the biggest driver of cloud computing
2) 84% of new software development is creating SaaS applications
3) 75% of applications will be built in the cloud and PaaS MAY have great potential, but IaaS and SaaS (Amazon and Salesforce.com as examples) providers may ultimately provide cloud based software development solutions, possibly making PaaS a thing of the past
4) Enterprises will have an increasing desire to scale across itneroperable clouds.
