Google today said, “In 2011, we’re committed to moving beyond the current notion of cloud computing to bring customers to a world we call “100% web”.
“In a 100% web world, business apps are delivered over the Internet and accessed in a web browser. The apps and the data are stored centrally and are designed to be served from a highly scalable, secure and reliable multi-tenant infrastructure. Devices like notebooks, tablets, and smartphones are portals to the data that help people be productive from anywhere, at any time. Upgrades aren’t necessary to get access to the latest innovation, just refresh the browser. Businesses no longer own or manage servers and client software: they purchase integrated apps and development platforms from others, and now devote their valuable time to business logic and features that create competitive advantage.
100% web is a dramatic shift from how companies have traditionally purchased, deployed, and managed IT,” Google stated.
Google’s investing in a variety of technologies so that companies can be productive with nothing but the web: Google Apps, Google App Engine, Google Apps Marketplace, Android, Google Chrome, Google Chrome OS.
