New Year’s Resolution: Fine-Tune Your Cloud Strategy

As we all stride into the New Year with new goals, and business aspirations, many end customers will be doing the same. Business from small to large will invest further in the cloud, and those who’ve yet to make the move to cloud will likely look to make a change in 2018. Now’s the time to fine tune your cloud strategy and win more business.

In 2018 analysts see the cloud as a key driver for business transformation. Forrester predicts that more than 50% of global enterprises will rely on at least one public cloud platform to drive digital transformation. “Cloud is truly business critical and is now a mainstream enterprise core technology,” writes Dave Bartolleti, vice president and principal analyst at Forrester. See blog post here.

Further, IDC sees boom times for anything that resembles a cloud. The research firm predicts that by 2021, cloud services and cloud-enabling hardware, software and services spend will double to more than $530 billion.
