Almost two years ago, I wrote about how NYSE Technologies was launching a "community cloud" targeted at the financial trading community. At the time, it was a brave experiment, with powerful ideas behind the offering.
I was duly fascinated.
Now, two years later, they're now reaping the benefits of being the first mover in their industry: many customers, expanded services, increased investment -- success is clearly at hand.
Could the dynamics behind their success lead to similar community clouds for other industry sectors?
I think so ...
