Cloud Computing became the main business strategy of the software industry. As-a-Service infrastructures, platforms and applications are being created day & night with investments of billions of dollars in R&D and business development. What is the next big thing in Cloud computing?

Among the next big things, we have several exiting upcoming developments:
High speed network infrastructures that are symmetrical and provide Bandwidth-on-Demand BoD services, Multi Clouds markets that are based on Cost/Performance with customers that will be able to compare cloud services to accomplish freedom of choice. Software development automation; SaaS based Enterprises with no data centers; devices that will produce Big Data 24x7, about our ongoing activities; real-time predictive analysis that will influence our daily decisions; robot-cars that will produce Big Data, and the networked-human that will need to face the changes of social behavior in the cloud virtual civilization with explosion of new innovations.
