Great article in the Guardian about the future of cloud computing trends for 2014.

In true Guardian style, here’s a digested, digested read of the article:

Cloud will enable your content to follow you wherever you go and cloud based analytics enhances the offline world in the form of sensors monitoring stuff going on in the home. Cloud allows everyone to become a media company so a football club can offer content outside of the two hour fun on the pitch.

Faster and faster, cloud moves data processing to real-time

Perhaps the most interesting area is big data and how it helps real-time recommendations like ‘other people in your network are reading X’ but also that Channel 4 is using second-screen data (ie twitter trends etc) to augment TV watching and that Netflix processes over 40bn events *a day* using real-time analytics.
