Domineren de Cloudreuzen de markt? Staat de Lokale IT dienstverlening onder druk? Onze economie wordt steeds meer een digitale economie, en onze samenleving steeds meer een digitale samenleving. Dit wordt allemaal mogelijk gemaakt door de digitale infrastructuur. De infrastructuur voor deze clouddiensten wordt steeds meer gedomineerd door de Grote Vier: Amazon, Google, Microsoft en IBM.

It's only a mild update to Asus's most recent previous lean, mean, gaming machine, the Core i7 740QM vs. a 1.6GHz 720QM), a Blu-ray combo drive, and improved battery life (2.5 hours vs. 1.75 hours), the G73Jw is definitely an upgrade.
