BuddeComm Intelligence Report - Cloud Technology Trends and Statistics

Cloud computing has become one of the fastest growing areas for the IT sector and cloud computing solutions are being adopted by enterprises; government and consumers alike. In 2016 cloud computing has become almost main-stream, with the majority of large enterprises adopting various solutions. Small and medium-sized businesses still largely need to start on the road to cloud computing while close to 90% of larger businesses in developed economies have already embraced it. Few people realise the enormous impact that cloud computing is already making.

The leading cloud technology vendors are now looking towards new markets to apply their technology. Boosting government uptake of cloud solutions, the emerging markets (particularly China) and mobile cloud computing are all key areas of interest to the major players.

Cloud security and privacy are still issues which require scrutiny and there are growing concerns about data ownership.

This BuddeComm Intelligence report explores some of the key issues and trends surrounding cloud computing. It provides key global statistics and recent developments.

Latest developments:

Safety and security concerns are leading towards companies taking a multi-cloud approach and using two or more cloud solutions in order to minimise risk if one of the services becomes compromised in any way; Cloud TV developments continue with the 2015 release of Sony's Vue Cloud TV offering; China offers a significant opportunity for future cloud growth with the market expanding by around 30% a year; Mobile cloud computing requires the development of more sophisticated applications.
