Cloud Computing: Growth, Adoption and SMBs

Radiocasts | September 14, 2016 by Bonnie D. Graham

The buzz: “I fell off my pink cloud with a thud.” (Elizabeth Taylor)

By 2019, cloud software delivery will grow to $112B – five times faster than traditional software – leveling the IT playing field.

With uneasiness, skepticism and “technical acrophobia” about the cloud mostly a thing of the past, cloud adoption could grow from 22% today to 32% in the next 24 months.

The main beneficiaries: small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs). But should they still worry about reliability, availability, data security, and pricing complexity?

The experts speak.

Tim Fuller, EY: “Sooner or later, everything old is new again.” (Stephen King)

Eric Gunther, SAP: “My dear, here we must run as fast as we can, just to stay in place. And if you wish to go anywhere you must run twice as fast as that.” (Lewis Carroll, Through The Looking Glass – The Red Queen’s Race)

Steve Day, SAP: “I shall either find a way or make one.” (Aut viam inveniam aut faciam, Hercules, Oedipus, Hannibal)
