Bill Coleman, Chairman and CEO of Cassatt, Inc., and former CEO of BEA, made a presentation to the Highlands Forum on October 15, 2007, of his vision of the future of IT. He titled his talk "Into the Cloud: Dawn of the Information Age". This is a vision out to 2025 where "the ends are in control". As the CEO of a software company, Bill looks at this topic through a commercial, economic lens, not a technologist's viewpoint. Coleman paints on a large canvas how he believes technology will evolve over the next two to three decades, to form a cloud that will have relevance both for computing and communications as well as for usage and applications.
