Will SMB Cloud Computing follow the path of Client-Server?

Techaisle believes that in about 5 year’s time, SMB Cloud Computing will begin its steady route of complexity of client-server technology. Client-server technology (alternatively server-based computing) became increasingly complex to implement and maintain because of the following reasons:

  • Lack of control

  • Complexity in development and usage

  • Muddled TCO

  • Intricacies in Data Integration

  • Expensive implementation

  • Dependency on Consultants

  • Too many Vendors providing niche solutions


Historically, these are the very reasons that  gave rise to thin-client computing which quickly transformed its nomenclature to Desktop Virtualization. Again the promise of lower TCO, “access anytime, anywhere”, centralized computing with de-centralized user capabilities, disaster recovery and standardization is still struggling to make a definitive statement for SMBs.

Similar signs are already becoming visible in the Cloud Computing arena. The beneficiaries of this complexity will be three different types of entities:

  1. Those that provide consulting to SMBs prior to Cloud Computing Implementation

  2. Those that provide consulting and data integration across clouds post cloud implementation for SMBs

  3. Those that have a stack of offerings providing not only cloud solutions but also seamless data exchange capabilities for SMBs
