Dilbert even talks about Cloud Computing


Cloud computing is not just a buzzword – it has been confirmed by Dilbert himself. Many of today’s Internet news articles, blog postings, interviews are around the discussion of cloud computing. Several of the popular web platforms out there are built on a cloud computing infrastructure and users are becoming curious, where is their data going? The cloud computing movement is real and we have been here from the beginning. Many businesses, small and large, are thinking about their IT infrastructure and evaluating cloud computing options. So when we saw today’s Dilbert comic strip, it definitely put a grin on all of our faces.

    Love Dilbert, but don’t you think this is a Jab at Cloud Services?
    Or does it speak more to the general confusion in the marketplace today?

    Hi Rick –

    I think it speaks more to the general confusion in the marketplace. I also think that from the perspective of this Dilbert strip, the executives just needed something to talk about in their meeting without having to do real work. Since everyone is talking about cloud computing, he thought “let’s talk about it too.” Whether they cared about the topic or not, didn’t really matter. Everyone in that meeting would recognize the term cloud computing since it’s being discussed heavily the tech/biz industry. I suppose it could have a few different interpretations though :)
