There have been rumors since Thursday last week and now it seems the unstoppable rise of Cloud Computing is forcing Google to act and launch “Drive”, a service that will allow people to store and share photos, documents and videos.
Of course, the service will have to work on all available devices from our “software shell”, including mobile phones, tablets, etc.
Dropbox, the praised cloud storage service and one of the hottest start-ups of the past years, is certainly looking very closely at Google’s plans. It will be interesting to see how they react to the Giant’s plans.
Clintelica is now officially the most innovative Cloud Computing idea in Sweden, as voted by the Cloud Camp Jury.
The event held in Stockholm yesterday confirmed that we are on the right track in our efforts to use networking in order to increase the quality of sales and recruiting.
We’ve always wondered why people winning Oscars have this tendency of thanking everyone from their mothers to their business partners, but now we understand it comes naturally. So here we are, Winners of Cloud Camp Sweden, humbly saying thanks to the team that worked so hard on this idea, to our families for the support they’ve shown, to the people at Cloud Camp for organizing a very cool unconference and, last but not least, to all the people who told us it can’t be done.
As for the Cloud Camp movement, you might want to keep an eye on the upcoming events that have a scheduled date and location here. The “unconferences” where early adopters of Cloud Computing technologies exchange ideas are going on strong around the world and by June next year cities like Sao Paolo, Montreal or Copenhagen will have awarded prizes of their own.
We will certainly keep an eye on #cloudcamp on twitter, simply because the organizers have shown that their mission, to provide a common ground for the introduction and advancement of cloud computing, is bringing the best the industry has to offer in one huge cloud of ideas, with links all over the world. Read more about how this works here and understand how to camp here.
And, for those who speak Swedish or use the translate feature in Google Chrome, link here to the IDG interview about winning the first prize.
“Congratulations, your contribution is one of the three that we nominated to present and also take home one of the slots 1, 2 or 3 in the Swedish Innovation in the Cloud.”
By our standards, that’s not exactly a bad way to start the day.
In short, we are thrilled to find out that the basic idea behind all the work we do here at www.clintelica.eu is gaining traction: reinventing the way sales are made is not an easy task, but we have always felt that as long you aim for the impossible, great things stand to happen.
Basically, Cloud Camp is an unconference (a term usually associated to a wide range of participant-driven gatherings that try to avoid one or more aspects of a conventional conference). Originally started in the US, the Cloud Camp concept is now spread widely around the globe and is becoming a global meeting point for all people interested in Cloud Computing.
It seems that over 20 contributions went into the last phase and the idea behind the Clintelica application ended up as one of the top 3 that will be presented during the event. The focus of the jury was on innovation and on the best ways to use the cloud. You can read more about the nominees here.
