Cloud in 2015

Recognizing that the cloud is the future of enterprise computing, more and more companies looked to acquire cloud service providers to create cloud-based solutions in 2015. In doing so, they have eliminated the hassle of having to integrate existing systems later on. A great example of this M&A activity is Rapid7's October 2015 acquisition of LogEntries, a provider of a cloud-based solutions for collecting, searching, visualizing and analyzing machine data and logs. Now, Rapid7 customers can more easily move to the cloud and operate in accordance with cloud best practices from the onset of the relationship.

Cloud computing adoption is showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, according to a 2014 IDG Cloud Computing Study, cloud investments have increased by 19 percent in large-scale enterprises spending on average $3.3M a year. Not only that, but according to a recent report from RightScale, an overwhelming 93 percent of IT professionals have adopted the cloud in some form.

As the cloud continues on the path toward complete enterprise adoption, Pete Zimmerman, vice president of client services and operations, Sonian, takes a closer look at how far the market has come in such a short period of time, and how we can expect it to continue to (quickly) grow in the years ahead.
