Forrester's Revised Cloud Taxonomy


  By Thomas Mendel

As promised, we’ve been very busy during the past few weeks revising Forrester’s initial proposal of a cloud computing taxonomy. You can see the result below. What can you expect next? Right now, we are in the process of sizing today’s cloud computing market, obviously based on our taxonomy. Next, we will develop two to three future scenarios and finally create a market forecast for these scenarios.

Keeping you posted; comments as always welcome.


Kind regards

Thomas Mendel


re: Forrester's Revised Cloud Taxonomy

Hi Thomas,Thanks for the updated cloud taxonomy. I like the earlier one which had 'Cloud OS' clearly marked out. But I guess that was 'Privacy vs Business Value' perspective and this brings about a new perspective.This new perspective also brings about new thought process. Thanks a lot.Suresh
