As time moves forward through the decades, generations come and go based on core values and consumer trends. Now, it appears that society is on the cusp of witnessing the birth of a new generation and, this time, its members will be living in the cloud.

According to Investors, the mobile demands of the newest generation and the computing modes they grew up on will eventually launch the cloud into the stratosphere, making the platform a part of people's everyday lives.

"For those entering the workforce under the age of 25 or 30 who have grown up using the Internet, their expectations of technology are far different from older generations," Treb Ryan, CEO of OpSource, told the media organization.

Furthermore, Ryan claims that the latest generation of college students and young working professionals have been living in the cloud for quite some time now as many institutions and trends conducive to this age group have already begun virtual computing.

Their diverse needs will likely result in varied platforms. In a recent article for SYS-CON, David Geada wrote that the cloud of the future will take on a "heterogeneous" appearance.
