CROWD SOURCING INFORMATION SYSTEMS FOR PUNE
This is an invitation to all CIO’s in Pune- an invitation to create shared Information Systems.
As all you CIO’s know, Cloud Computing has radically altered the models to deploy software, platforms and infrastructure across user communities. It has brought shared computing power, massive scalability, elasticity of use, pay-as-you-go and self-service scenarios for users.
Web 2.0 has opened the potential to tap the collective knowledge of the entire value chain. This has transformed business models to include the long-tail (or many very small niches of customers) thus radically altering the economics of providing services or deploying “products”. It significantly altered the ability to exchange information across silos with open models and API’s that facilitate the rapid development and deployment of consumer value through mashups.
