Icloud Apple, Apple CEO Steve Jobs is known for captivating audiences with his style of presentation and with new technologies and polished for Apple desktops, mobile devices and services to the media. His keynote address Monday at the World Conference this year the developers (WWDC) was no exception. Jobs and other Apple executives showed off some of the features the company’s Mac OS X 10.7 “Leon”, due out next month, next generation mobile platform IOS, and service of a new company known as tag icloud.
Apple and its products are generally seen as solely focused on consumers, despite ongoing progress iPads and iPhones in the workplace of all shapes and sizes are beginning to make Apple technology brand quite common in companies and enterprises.
So what yesterday’s announcement means for the company?
Let’s start with icloud, which aims to facilitate ubiquitous data access in all computing devices available to anyone. Given that Apple now considers a PC or Mac to be another “device”, this could have serious implications regarding the line between home and work.
On the surface, icloud is simply a consumer solution for synchronization of personal data: music purchases, applications and e-books, photos and personal videos, personal information such as contacts, calendars, and offers a free email account. Those who cannot affect much the workplace.
However, the timing of documents and functions of backup device are bigger problems in the company for one simple reason: to allow your company information stored outside of their control infrastructure and location data with a user’s personal identification from Apple.
Of course, some of that risk exists. A user can theoretically a backup device (personal or company property) to an external computer or use any number of storage solutions in the cloud – Dropbox, Box.net, existing iDisk Apple, Google Docs and others – business transfer information outside the workplace. The difference is that a user has to make an effort to do so, while icloud will do everything automatically. A user might not even be aware of what is going on, background operation, and ease of use is, after all, what Apple is looking for.
While the timing may seem like document initial red flag, the main concern is backing up the cloud. Application developer’s -only Apple’s iWork is programmed to do now – should implement synchronization of documents and every application seem to require activation of the first user. Of backup devices is expected to include backups of purchased content, pictures and videos taken with a device, ringtones, all device-level settings, screen layout, text message / MMS and data application. Application data that is the big concern because it could mean almost anything, depending on the particular application, everything from spreadsheets to student grades and attendance performance reviews, sales figures and notes of the meeting.
