Title: The cloud crowd
Publication: The Economist
Abstract: IT WAS disgustingly hot in San Francisco as October began. The sun blazed and the thick fog that often sweeps into the city in the evening was nowhere to be seen. The only clouds that mattered were digital. Larry Ellison, the boss of Oracle, boasted about some new cloud-based initiatives at OpenWorld, the software company’s annual jamboree for customers and partners. And on October 1st Workday, a young Californian firm selling cloud-based software that helps large companies manage back-office functions such as finance and payroll, revealed that it was aiming for a valuation of up to $3.8 billion in a forthcoming initial public offering (IPO) on the New York Stock Exchange.
