Cloud Computing: From Hype To Reality

Cloud Computing: From Hype To Reality | Social media and education | Scoop.it

For many of us in the IT industry there is a certain feeling that cloud computing is finally taking a grip on UK businesses, more companies seem to be taking the plunge into the cloud and putting a greater number of applications into the cloud.


But how significant is this change and is it reality or just perception? Are we genuinely seeing greater mainstream adoption?


Last year, the cloud landscape was at a tipping point, several years of vendor hype and industry expectation had taken its toll. Despite great promises of cost and efficiency savings, uptake was still limited and reservations remained. Companies were aware of the benefits cloud offered, but were hesitant to move towards full-scale adoption.

Ten Other Word Cloud Generators

Ten Other Word Cloud Generators | Social media and education | Scoop.it

(Michael Gorman) Welcome to a post that covers those other ten Word Cloud Generators and some are pretty amazing! While Wordle is the king of Word Cloud Generators here are some other word cloud tools that have some outstanding capabilities that are worth investigation. Each tool provides a unique way that can be used in the classroom to facilitate the creation and study of word clouds. I especially was impressed with a few tools that actually helped students analyze a group of text using more than just the generated cloud, another that allows the user to be creative with the cloud shape, and still another that connects words in the cloud to web pages! Thanks for the visit, and as always please feel free to follow me on Twitter (mjgormans), I will follow back and we can learn from each other. Also, be sure to visit my 21centuryedtech Blog and check out all of the free resources at my 21centuryedtech Wiki! – Have a great week and enjoy the read! –
