Since the shift to client-server computing from mainframes, it has been the dominant paradigm in how enterprise software and data are stored and managed. With the advent of cheap broadband, cloud computing is proving itself a cheap, efficient and – most importantly – safe and secure replacement for venerable client-server computing.

In this presentation, Matthias Liffers will be exploring different aspects of cloud computing and how they will impact the way we create documents, manage our files and make sure they survive disaster.

Matthias will indulge in some personal speculation about the future of computing and the life of data.
