Experts tell us that 2014 will be a defining year for business and that technology evolution will be driven by the cloud. In the past year or two excitement for the cloud has been on the rise, and now it seems that the thunderhead is beginning to blow into large scale production. Industry-leading brands like IBM, Hewlett-Packard, Cisco, Amazon and Microsoft are all rushing to adapt to the new model; not just running development and testing, but truly moving to production in the cloud.
Investment in the cloud is booming as a result. Research from IHS Technology predicts that spending on cloud infrastructure and services will rise to $174.2 billion this year. That’s up 20% from last year, and spending is expected to soar to $235.1 billion by 2017 — triple the amount spent on in 2011.
Level the Playing Field
With all this meteoric growth, it’s no wonder that industry leaders like Amazon and others are expanding their cloud-based products and services. But how can your company compete without the same kind of global infrastructure and deep-pocket investments? That’s where we come in.
