Behind every cloud service or cloud-based solution, there are real people...
A robust ecosystem of solutions providers has emerged around cloud computing.
But who are the CEOs & CTOs behind those providers, who are the internal and
external entrepreneurs driving companies involved in the Cloud, who are the
leading engineers, developers, analysts, researchers, marketing
professionals, authors...who, in short, are the people behind the cloud?

2007 was undoubtedly the year of Social Networking, but what of 2008? Will
'08 be the year of "Unified Communications" or the year when CMS comes to

2013 is turning into a big year for Big Data. Colorfully described by one
commentator recently as being "like Moneyball for geeks", Big Data is - quite
literally - the Next Big Thing.
Put very bluntly, data nowadays is one almighty jungle and Big Data Analytics
is the hunter in the jungle. One very succinct definition was given by a
