We are at the point where, between
the geolocation capability of the phone and the power of the phone's browser platform, it is possible to deliver personalized
information about where you are, what you could do there right now, and so forth—and to deliver such a service at scale.
But to realize that vision,
Google needs to do some serious spadework on three fronts. First, we must focus on developing the underlying fast
networks (generally called LTE). These will be 8-to-10-megabit networks, roughly 10 times what we have today, which will
usher in new and creative applications, mostly entertainment and social, for these phone platforms.
Second, we must attend to the development of mobile money.
Phones, as we know, are used as banks in many poorer parts of the world—and modern technology means that their use as
financial tools can go much further than that.
Third, we want to increase the availability of inexpensive smartphones in the poorest parts of the world. We envision
literally a billion people getting inexpensive, browser-based touchscreen phones over the next few years. Can you imagine
how this will change their awareness of local and global information and their notion of education? And that will be just

reseller and Trainer Channel. Mobile professional buyers can source commercial surplus inventory (i.e, Enterprise-Corporate
Off-Loads) and government surplus assets in an online environment. Bulk lots are sold by the truckload, pallet, or small package,
and conditions range from new in a box to customer returns and used. Our wide variety of product categories includes
Smartphones, Laptops, Tablet PCs, Netbooks, eReaders, mobile Hotspot devices, and more. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
chains clear by Mobile Devices Liquidation Channels
New high-tech devices are always in demand by consumers. Electronic
companies are competing to have the latest technology included in their computers, tablets or mobile devices.
customers look to upgrade, they often seek a solution for getting rid of their old devices. To improve customer services,
chain stores can offer to recycle the unwanted items, e-waste recycling.
However, this can place additional strain on supply chains. The outdated computers need to be transported and stored until
they can be dismantled and recycled.
Instead of recycling the parts of the devices, companies can create alternative
revenue by selling the unwanted electronics through liquidation channels.
Clear-Cloud.com is a large reseller in this manner.
Mobile Device Brokers will often
purchase used Enterprise-Corporate smartphones or laptops, update them, clean them and resell them at reduced prices,
as the old merchandise still has value to consumers looking for a bargain. Liquidating electronics and other unwanted goods can help keep inventory clear and streamline the company's distribution network.
Many Mobile Device Brokers make very decent income this way.
often choose retailers that will take old devices because of simplicity and convenience. Thousands of electronic units are
recycled every month as customers look to upgrade their devices. Firms that liquidate the merchandise may be able to improve
their overall profit margins. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

John Doerr and Ted Schlein of Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers have had
a front-row seat at Silicon Valley's recent Web froth and its fallout.
Their venture firm in the past decade made a big bet on clean technology. In the last couple
of years, Kleiner has also put money into high-profile and fast-growing digital startups, but only after they were valued
at $1 billion or more—a far cry from the firm's traditional strategy of investing very early in young companies.
Some of those more recent
investments—in companies such as messaging service Twitter Inc., mobile-payments service Square Inc. and music service
Spotify AB—have at least doubled in value based on their last private funding rounds.
Ted Schlein, left, and John Doerr of Kleiner
Perkins Caufield & Byers, at the venture-capital company's office in Menlo Park.
Kleiner also invested relatively late in
daily-deals site Groupon Inc. GRPN-2.61% and in social network Facebook Inc., FB-1.08% whose stocks have disappointed
since their initial public offerings.
In recent months, particularly since Facebook's May IPO, Silicon Valley has been grappling with a less-heady startup
investment environment. Still, Mr. Doerr, 61 years old, and Mr. Schlein, 48, say they remain confident that the mobile-device
revolution will catapult more startups to greater heights.
The two investors recently sat down at their Sand Hill Road offices in Menlo
Park to discuss Kleiner's investments in tech and clean tech, as well as their thoughts on the "four horsemen" of
Why did you pay such high prices to get into Twitter, Square, Spotify and others?
If you're working with great entrepreneurs in a rapidly growing marketplace, you have a conviction to work with them and you
can be rewarded all along the way. Every one of those investments is leveraging the trends of mobile, social and commerce.
These aren't waves of innovation; they're tsunamis.
WSJ: Given such investments, do you
think you have retained your identity as a company-builder?
Mr. Schlein: The vast majority of
what we do is 'series A' [early-stage company] investing. It's the core of what Kleiner Perkins has always been about.
Doerr: In the digital sector we have [magazine app] Flipboard, Chegg, the world's best textbook-renting company;
and Coursera [offering college-level courses online], which is five months old but already has two million students. Path
[a social networking mobile app] is another very successful company.
WSJ: Is the sharp rise in the value
of private tech companies sustainable for investors?
Mr. Doerr: What we're experiencing
right now is not different from the very early days of the Internet when there were huge winners who more than made up for
the losers, and that's happening right now in mobile.
Mr. Schlein: There's a lot of talk
about how there are too many angel investors [who invest small amounts in very young companies]….But the main event
is that we have 1.2 billion people with smartphones, and that's up 40% year over year and that's still just 17% of the world's
WSJ: There's much talk about competition among tech's "four horsemen" of today—Google, GOOG-0.13%
Apple, Facebook and Amazon. How do you view these companies and the way they are expanding into each other's turf? (Mr. Doerr
sits on the board of Google and two other Kleiner partners are board directors at Apple and Amazon.)
Today, these two products at Apple [holds up an iPhone and an iPad mini] that didn't exist a few years ago are now $100 billion
a year of very profitable revenue. That has never happened in any industry in any economy in any planetary system we know
The best is yet to come. This is day zero. Apple is not done, Facebook is not done, Google is not done, and Amazon
is not done. Those companies have massive opportunity. I would be a long-term shareholder of all of them—and I am.
you still have the conviction that your clean tech bets from the past decade will pay off?
Doerr: We're very committed to green and the numbers are showing how that pays off. In 2011, $1.3 billion was the
cumulative revenue of all of Kleiner's clean-tech portfolio [comprising about 70 companies, with more than half not publicly
launched]. Do you know how much it was this year? $2.4 billion—that's up 80% year over year.
The biggest single trend
is urbanization, people moving from rural to urban areas. And if they urbanize the way we did—they can't, the planet
can't afford it. Our green investing doesn't depend on government policies. It's about basic supply and demand.
WSJ: When will U.S. policies restricting
the number of foreign entrepreneurs and computer scientists who can come to this country start to hurt us?
That takes decades, but if we think we own the right to innovate, we're just wrong. We're doing everything we can to export
that when we should be doing everything we can to embrace it. Can you believe there's a cap on H1-B visas [to hire foreign
workers]? Innovation is a strategic weapon around national security, our economy, job creation, and I don't believe we do
enough in this area. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Research firm Gartner
is reporting that security applications delivered as cloud-based services will more than triple by 2013. Approximately 20
percent of the revenue of messaging security tools (anti-malware, anti-spam email services, and instant messaging, are currently
done via the cloud), and this will jump to 60 percent by 2013 with some other services likely to be added over that time period.
In fact, we predict that a Security
Services Stack will emerge
as the Enterprise 2.0 Architecture begins to take hold in the enterprise.
Certainly SaaS applications, suchas
Salesforce.com, which allow mobile workers to bypass the corporate network to access business data are already beginning to
force changes in IT approaches to security. Gartner says this will force security teams to put controls between mobile workers
and cloud based services, an assessment with which we agree.
According to Gartner:
Firms should look at
security as a service as a delivery option where it enables them to perform existing security processes more efficiently (less
staffing, lower cost) or more effectively. Security areas such as where very sensitive internal data and applications require
security will not fit this model.
However before such a decision is made, a security risk assessment should always
be conducted. Always check the supplier's credentials and where the service is operated from, and check what external assessment
the supplier has been subject to. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Data complexity and performance needs are the two reasons enterprises will find solace
in cloud-borne database technology
Those businesses that store data in the cloud typically use primitive file storage systems
rather than databases. However, these days many cloud computing platforms are adding or enhancing their database offerings,
thus becoming more compelling to enterprises.
For example, Google now offers a relational database for its cloud-hosted App Engine application development and a hosting platform called Google Cloud SQL -- in short,
MySQL in the cloud. Both Oracle and Microsoft have their own cloud-based database offerings. Amazon Web Services offers Relational
Database Service (RDS), as well as other popular databases in its IaaS product.
Of course, a fraction of enterprise data already exists in public
clouds, so why will 2013 be the year of migration to cloud-hosted database systems? There are two core reasons for the migration
and a simpler reason for the 2013 timeframe.
The first and most critical reason for the migration is that data in most enterprises is
a huge mess. For years, databases have been built around applications or some tactical need, creating hundreds or even thousands
of data silos that are difficult to integrate or to even provide a common view of business information. The advantage of migrating
some data to cloud-based databases is around the cost and ease of doing so. Thus, you can spin up terabytes of operational
data stores without having huge software and hardware costs appearing on budgets and causing concern in the CFO's office or,
worse, the boardroom.
The second reason is performance. Databases in enterprises often don't provide data in a timely manner to support
those running the business. Queries that should take 10 or 15 minutes instead take hours. Moreover, in many instances, the
data is erroneous. Cloud-based databases, if engineered correctly, typically provide much better performance than traditional
on-premise systems. This is due to the fact that they can gather up as many processor instances as required to complete the
database processing quickly.
No, cloud-delivered databases won't save you. Indeed, they could complicate matters if you're not careful. However,
the ease of provisioning, cost advantage, and better performance mean that they are the best value when it comes to database
all the positives, do I believe the migration timeframe is 2013? As in all things, there is a ramp-up period. Now that commercial
options are available from several vendors, we'll start getting toes-in-the-water efforts in 2012, then see the big wave of
implementations in 2013. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Gartner Says Worldwide Cloud Services
Revenue Will Grow 21.3 Percent in 2009
Cloud Services to Be Discussed at Gartner Outsourcing Summits Being Held in Las Vegas, London
March 26, 2009— Worldwide
cloud services revenue is on pace to surpass $56.3 billion in 2009, a 21.3 percent increase from 2008 revenue of $46.4 billion,
according to Gartner, Inc. The market is expected to reach $150.1 billion in 2013.
“Cloud computing is a
broad and diverse phenomenon. Much of the growth represents a transfer of traditional IT services to the new cloud model,
but there is also scope for creation of substantial new businesses and revenue streams,” said Ben Pring, research vice
president for Gartner. “Cloud computing enables a shift in IT provision from direct purchase and payment for services
to provision of services which are free at point of use and where revenue is derived from advertising.
Services supported by advertising
are currently, and will remain, the largest component of the overall cloud services market through 2013.”
computing is a style of computing where scalable and elastic IT-enabled capabilities are provided "as a service"
to external customers using Internet technologies.
Business processes delivered as cloud services are the largest
segment of the overall cloud services market, accounting for 83 percent of the overall market in 2008. The segment, consisting
of cloud-based advertising, e-commerce, human resources and payments processing, is forecast to grow 19.8 percent in 2009
to $46.6 billion, up from $38.9 billion in 2008.
The largest component of the overall cloud services market is
cloud-based advertising. This component represented 60 percent of the market in 2008 with revenue of $28 billion and is forecast
to reach $33 billion, and make up 58 percent of the overall market in 2009.
This reflects the success of Google in creating a new
business and delivery model for IT-based services, which is being emulated by Yahoo, Microsoft and others.
as a cloud service is the capability to deliver advertising where the content and the fee charged are determined at the time
of end-user access, usually by an auction mechanism that matches bidders with spots as they become available,” said
Mr. Pring. “We expect cloud-based advertising to continue to reshape and redefine the advertising and media markets
over the next few years.”
While much of the publicity for cloud computing currently centers on systems infrastructure
delivered as a service, this is still an early-stage market. In 2008, such services accounted for only 5.5 percent of the
overall cloud services market and are expected to account for 6 percent of the market in 2009. Infrastructure services revenue
was $2.5 billion in 2008 and is forecast to reach $3.2 billion in 2009.
“Cloud-based infrastructure services
are expected to see significant adoption through 2013,” said Mr. Pring. “This segment probably has the largest
range of possible outcomes, depending on how aggressively cloud computing is embraced by the major outsourcing vendors and
their customers.” ++++++++++++++++++++==

In the world of information technology, it seems that
every few years a new concept comes along that emerges as being the next great leap in technology. One of the current concepts
that fits that description in the IT world is called cloud computing.
However, before a company
decides that it will embrace cloud computing, it needs to make sure that it understands all the implications of this new offering.
As with most technologies, there are many benefits that can be gained, but along with understanding the benefits,
the business risks must also be evaluated. When making this evaluation, it is important to keep in mind not only the short
term needs, but the long term objectives and goals of the organization.
In recent years, the Obama administration
has pushed for all federal agencies to investigate cloud computing to see if it will benefit each agency. “The Federal
CIO Council under the guidance of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Federal Chief Information Officer (CIO),
Vivek Kundra, established the Cloud Computing Initiative to fulfill the President’s objectives for cloud computing.”5
With the recent push from the current administration, cloud computing is expected to grow by leaps and bounds over the next
In some studies, there are predictions that “cloud services will reach $44.2 billion in 2013,
up from $17.4 billion of today, according to research firm IDC.”4 This paper will lay out the considerations that an
organization should consider at before making a decision to use or dismiss cloud computing at the present time.
of Cloud Computing:
“Cloud Computing is a model for enabling convenient, on-demand network-based access to a shared pool of configurable
computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released
with minimal management effort or service provider interactions.”2 This definition is one of many that have been introduced
within the IT industry, but what does this actually mean? The concept of a cloud can be looked at as a “leasing-versus-owning
concept – an operational expense versus a capital one.” 4
To understand the cloud computing concept more clearly, let us
compare it to a more common concept: paying for electric utility. Each month, a household or business utilizes a certain amount
of electricity which is monitored by a company and the consumer is billed based on their usage. If each household had their
own power source, that would be congruent with non-cloud computing; there is no central power source that households take
advantage of. If, as is the standard case, households buy their power from a consolidated power source (e.g. a power plant),
that would be like taking advantage of a cloud; many users sharing a resource to fulfill their independent needs. Using this
simple example, the cloud would be similar to the power plant, providing either infrastructure or software to customers on
Some experts may disagree, but in many regards, cloud computing is similar to the way that computers were used when
they first entered the market. At the advent of computers, computers (and associated facilities) were extraordinarily expensive
and only owned by a few select organizations such as universities or the government. Few had the expertise to support a separate
computing facility in house. Therefore, companies would lease time on computing resources provided by a small number of providers,
only purchasing what they needed for what they were working on. In a similar model, cloud computing introduces the concept
of buying resources as needed, and similar to the past, the resources can be accessed from a remote location.
differences include quality of service, and variety of services offered by cloud computing vendors.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) serves as a guide towards helping government
agencies achieve cloud. NIST’s cloud model “promotes availability and is composed of five essential characteristics,
three service models, and four deployment models.”2 As this paper continues, each of these components will be addressed.
Prior to being able to evaluate if cloud computing is a good fit for a given organization, the general concepts of
cloud computing must be understood. There are a number of different deployment models as well as applications of clouds that
make up a cloud environment. The cloud deployment models include: public cloud, community cloud, private cloud and hybrid
cloud. There are strengths and weaknesses to each deployment model as it relates to the specific case that a cloud is being
considered for use with.
The following provides a summary understanding of each deployment model so that one can
be chosen to move forward with consideration of cloud implementation.
“Made available to the general
public or a large industry group and is owned by an organization selling cloud services”2
A public cloud is owned by a third party
vendor that sells, or offers free of service, a cloud that can be used by the general public. A public cloud is the quickest
to setup within an organization, but it also has a limited amount of transparency and limits the amount of customization.
“Shared by several organization and supports specific community that has shared concerns” 2
A community cloud
is an architecture that is established when a group of organizations come together to share resources. A community cloud is
a mini public cloud, but only a select group of organizations will be authorized to use the cloud. In contrast to the public
cloud, it will generally be more expensive since it will only be used within a smaller group of organizations and all of the
infrastructure must be established.
A community cloud is a great choice for a group of organizations, such as
a group of federal agencies that desire to share resources but want to have more control over security and insight into the
“Operated solely for an organization” 2
A private cloud is one that is established
to support a small singular organization. There is much debate if a private cloud should be considered a cloud at all, as
the infrastructure and management of the cloud remains within the organization.
of two or more clouds (private, community or public) that remain unique entities but are bound together by standardized or
proprietary technology that enable technology that enables data and application portability.” 2
A hybrid cloud allows for some of the
resources to be managed by a public cloud environment, while others are managed internally by a private cloud. This will normally
be used by an organization that wants to allow itself to have the scalability features that a public cloud offers, but will
want to keep mission critical or private data internal to the organization.
In addition to the platform on which
a cloud will be deployed, there are a variety of different applications of cloud. There are three major types of cloud services,
Software as a Service (SaaS), Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS). Described below are the
concepts between the varying types of cloud models.
Software as a Service (SaaS):
“Delivers software over internet
without need to install and run applications on the customers own computers” 2
SaaS allows applications to be used
by customers over the internet to complete business processes. SaaS is not a new concept; for example, “Salesforce.com
has been providing on-demand software for customers since 1999.”6 The advantage of SaaS is the software is run from
one centralized location, which means that that the software can be accessed from any location over the internet. The other
benefit of having the software managed in one location is that the patches and updates only need to be done once, eliminating
the time consuming need to conduct software updates on every machine. Lastly, SaaS is generally “on-demand” which
means that an organization does not have to commit to enterprise licenses.
Platform as a Service (PaaS):
a computing platform and/or solution stack as a service, often consuming cloud infrastructure and sustaining cloud applications”
The PaaS is a platform that helps to deliver an environment where a user can use the clouds to develop new applications
without the need to have the software or infrastructure purchased in-house. The consumer will have control of the applications
that are running on the cloud, but will not have control of the infrastructure that it is running on. In essence, PaaS provides
“anything needed to support how a company builds and delivers Web applications and services in the cloud.”3
as a Service (IaaS):
“Delivers computer infrastructure, typically platform virtualization environment as a service. It’s an
evolution of virtual private server offerings.” 2
IaaS is using the cloud to supply the infrastructure that would
normally have to be procured by a singular organization to run an organizations IT infrastructure. Included in the infrastructure
are such things as servers, memory and storage that allow a customer to scale up or down as necessary. The infrastructure
can than be used by customers to run their own software with only the amount of resources that are needed at a given moment
in time. In the past, companies would often have to purchase a huge infrastructure to support a periodic spike in the need
for resources, leaving the servers and networks idle for much of the remaining time. With IaaS, resources will not be wasted,
because only what is needed at a given moment is utilized. The customers to the cloud service have control over the operating
systems and applications, but don’t manage the cloud infrastructure.
Pros and Cons of Cloud Computing:
Now that the basic
concepts of cloud computing are understood, an organization needs to consider all of the impacts that cloud will influence.
As one might expect, there are a number of considerations that need to be weighed to decide if an implementation of cloud
computing is the best approach for a given organization.
There are many advantages that can be gained from the
use of cloud computing. Cloud computing is built upon the idea of economies of scale. The great thing about the concept of
cloud is the potential cost-savings benefits that can be gained for a small startup, large company, or even an entire federal
Cloud computing eliminates the usual high up-front cost that companies often cannot afford, allows for
“infinite” resources on-demand, and provides the ability to pay for resources as they are needed. It also removes
the need for special facilities and highly trained personnel dedicated to IT and the need to continually upgrade hardware
and software as technology moves on and company requirements change.
In general, the use of cloud computing should reduce costs by companies
paying for only the resources that are needed. Many companies do not know what the demand will be for their IT infrastructure,
which previously meant that companies either over-bought servers or were overwhelmed by demand that could not be handled;
leading to a loss of customers or degradation of service to their customers. In either scenario, there is a detrimental impact
because money was inefficiently expensed on unnecessary hardware and/or potential sales were lost.
Maintenance of software can be just
as big an expense for organizations as the initial purchase. With the use of cloud computing, software updates and backups
are made without the organization having to spend time and money on these activities. This helps to alleviate many of the
technical burdens that are often put on companies and allows them to concentrate on their core competencies while still gaining
the advantage of having the most up-to-date version software.
Cloud computing allows a company to operate in an elastic fashion.
Resources can be scaled up or down as needed by a project, consumer demand or operating need. The elasticity that is gained
by cloud computing allows projects to proceed in a manner that is appropriate, without the time consuming and costly delays
that the purchase of hardware and software has through the procurement process. Resources can be quickly provisioned/de-provisioned,
which should result in a lower investment cost.
The use of cloud is looked at as an environmentally friendly approach. Currently, there
are a huge number of server farms that operate to serve individual organizational needs. With cloud computing, a single server
farm can support a large number of different entities, potentially reducing power requirements, emissions, and disposal of
A company may think that cloud computing is unquestionably the way to go, but there are a number of concerns that
need to be taken into consideration before a company elects to implement cloud computing. The main concerns inherent in cloud
computing include security, privacy, reliability and cost.
Security is by far the most common reason that an organization states for
not moving forward with cloud. Many organizations ask: “who would trust their essential data out there somewhere?”1
The amount of security control that an organization will have depends on the type of cloud structure that is adopted; private,
public or community. The amount of security control is highest in a private cloud and lowest in a public one. While a cloud
environment might be just as secure as a non-cloud, there is limited transparency into the cloud which escalates the worry
of security. Along the same lines, there is also a concern by many organizations about the amount of privacy that a cloud
environment could potentially lack.
The third party vendor that is supplying the cloud could potentially access
a company’s sensitive information, which increases the risk of a privacy breach.
Reliability is a huge concern for many organizations;
having a service down for even a few minutes a year could be very costly or even cause a safety concern. Cloud takes the control
of reliability out of the hands of the organization and puts it into the hands of the cloud vendor. It is important that service
level agreements are established with the cloud vendor to make sure the reliability requirements are agreed upon by both parties
some organizations, especially within the government, there are reporting laws that make it so a cloud option might “not
be an acceptable solution due to government regulations such as Sarbanes-Oxley and Health and Human Services Health Insurance
Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA)”.1 In addition, there are many regulations that prevent sensitive data from
being transmitted beyond the borders of a nation. Cloud computing farms are general built in locations that offer the lowest
possible cost, many times outside the borders of the customer’s nation. Currently, clouds are being established that
alleviate this concern, but as a result, the cost of using the cloud vendor increases.
While the “advantage” section mentioned
how cloud computing was a way to lower costs, this is not always the case. The initial cost of utilizing a cloud will be lower,
but the lifetime costs could be much higher due to the continual expense of paying for service. Lastly, there is always the
concern the business that is selling the cloud services goes out of business. Cloud applications from one provider will generally
not be compatible with other providers’ clouds; thus limiting an organization’s options if they needed to change
providers for some reason.
The first step that needs to be taken before deciding to implement
a cloud within an organization is deciding if cloud is the right fit. The proper analysis needs to be conducted to include:
cost, time, risk, benefits and interoperability. The cloud environment could be a great revolution for a given organization,
but it is not a one-size-fits-all solution. If flexibility and scalability are an organization’s paramount needs, cloud
is likely an optimal solution. In organizations that have high concerns for security and privacy, cloud might be a viable
IT solution, but an in-depth analysis of the tradeoffs needs to be conducted. The length of time that an application or infrastructure
will be commissioned should be a factor in deciding if cloud is an appropriate model. For a short duration project, cloud
is likely an excellent candidate due to the fact that the infrastructure does not need to be procured. In the case of a long
term implementation, cloud might still be a very viable option due to the fact that demand often fluctuates. This being the
case, if demand is steady, a procurement of the hardware might a better option, considering cloud normally has a higher cost
After it has been decided that a cloud environment is the correct fit, the layer of cloud that will be implemented
needs to be selected: SaaS, PaaS or IaaS. Each of the differing layers brings with it entirely different questions. Following
the selection of the layer, the type of platform that the cloud will be deployed on needs to be chosen: public, community,
private or hybrid.
It is important to take into consideration the entire life cycle cost of implementing cloud. Without much question,
the initial cost of implementing a cloud will be lower, but since costs are paid for on a per-use basis, the cost over the
entire lifetime of could potentially be higher with cloud.
When developing the cost estimate to establish an IT
infrastructure without cloud, it is essential that cost beyond the initial purchase of the hardware and software are taken
into account. With cloud, especially in the public cloud, there is a large reduction in the costs for updates/patches, maintenance
and reductions in staff, all factors that need to be taken into consideration when doing a fair comparison. Simply put, opportunity
cost must be determined for moving to a cloud and a decision should be made based on the needs of the organization.

Report: Mobile Cloud Computing
A $6 Billion Opportunity
By Tommy J. Tang Texas IT Mobile Brokers, LLC
Mobile cloud computing is set to make a new, profitable revenue
stream for mobile providers and mobile suppliers, driving in excess of $6 billion in revenue within the next five years.
According to a recent study by Digit-Com Partners, a Boston-based
firm, more than 227 million businesses will use cloud services through mobile devices
by 2014. That movement will push mobile cloud computing revenues to $6.2 billion.
In its recent study, "Enterprise Mobile Cloud Computing," Digit-Com examined cloud
services used by businesses and their application to the mobile supply chain, with emphasis on major enterprise software and telecom suppliers.
"The up front opportunity lies in optimizing cloud platforms to develop mobile applications,
particularly mobile applications that leverage enterprise data," said Perry Gills, VP at Digit-Com Partners. "Directly
and indirectly, Yahoo and Google are major players both influencing and enabling these developments.
Mobile operators have the most to gain through offers of cloud services to the enterprise leveraging their networks, application
enablement and data centers."
devices evolve beyond smartphones and laptops to media players, netbooks, smartbooks and other devices that connect to high-speed
wireless networks, mobile cloud services will also grow, presenting a new avenue for solution providers to offer cloud computing
consulting and services.
opportunity is in mobile devices accessing IT services from the cloud and paying for access on a per-use basis," he added.
"With the economics of cloud services expanding IT services access to the Small Business market, and more cellular connected devices in the market for business customers,
enterprise mobile cloud computing services will experience tremendous growth and become more than just "sweet talk.'"
The prediction that mobile cloud computing
will foster $6.2 billion in revenue comes after Digit-Com's forecast last July that the number of mobile cloud subscribers
would reach nearly 1.1 billion in 2013 and represent nearly 22 percent of all mobile subscribers. That's a massive jump
from the 41.4 million mobile cloud computing subscribers in 2008.

is a notice to Brokers in our Clear-Cloud Network, from the participating mid to large sized Corporates-Institutions-Enterprises-Organizations-Non-Profit
Foundations that regularly now – say every three to four months – present us with Schedules of their upcoming
and current IT Mobile Device Asset Disposals. These sheets and notifications carry many of the (see below) Glossary shipping

Bill of Lading
These terms are relative and significant to the Broker – as this info tells the price expected for the Broker to Remit
back payment, the time frame, the amt and value of the Laptops, BlackBerrys, Tablets delivered, and a lot more.
The Enterprises and Corporates you’ll be dealing with do not want a lot of “back traffic” communication
from the Mobile Devices that are released to the Brokers for remarket to the sole proprietors, “mom and pop” businesses,
and the Education segment. That is why the IT Dept was instructed (by the higher level executives, i.e., the Vice President
level officers) to release to QUALIFIED Brokers – Liquidation Pros the Enterprises valuable IT Assets.
Thus, to make the most money please learn at least SOME of these terms – we here at Computer-Brokers-USA Network
can and will ship and sell to you from our Los Angeles Warehouse – but for the maximum profit it’s best to go
directly to the source – the Enterprise-Non-Profit Organization that is actually releasing the Assets. From us here
at Computer-Broker-USA Network your price will be a little higher, per lot-batch – say 5% to 6% extra. The choice is
yours. If you want we can do the legwork and more.
