Abstract

In the last twenty years the Internet has been the driver of significant transformational change. The first period of meteoric growth (Web 1.0) was characterised by the widespread adoption of Internet-enabled personal computers (PCs) and client server computing systems within the enterprise sector. The second period of disruptive change (Web 2.0) - which is currently unfolding (2005 – 2013) - was characterised by the shift in computing from networked PCs to mobile tablets and smart phone devices whose application and storage needs were supplied and supported externally by `cloud` based systems operated by large powerful Internet companies such as the `Gang of Four` (Amazon, Google, Apple and Facebook). This period of rapid technological development also saw the enterprise sector marketing and operating cloud-based software services (SaaS) and hardware (HaaS) services.
