Chief executives of companies from around the world are expected to discuss the future of cloud computing at length during the World Economic Forum
Chief executives of companies from around the world are expected to discuss the future of cloud computing at length during the World Economic Forum.
The event, which started in Davos, Switzerland on January 26 and will continue until January 30, will look at the possible advantages cloud computing could bring to businesses and their operations.
Other topics such as the security of information and the storage of data on the platform are expected to emerge during the forum.
Clive Selley, chief executive of BT, said: "I expect the majority of the focus to be on data security and privacy, and the idea of companies having the 'right to be forgotten.
"There is always a worry when you put your data in the cloud and, if at a later date you decide to withdraw it, will your data be erased?
"People want to put their data in the cloud, and while you want it there you also want it to be secure, and you want to know where and how it is being stored.
"The great thing about this debate is that it will involve CEOs of major global companies, customers, politicians and legislators. You don't get all those different views anywhere else but Davos. We are bound to get a completely rounded perspective."
