The "Occupy" movement and the impact of cloud computing are both gaining significant traction worldwide, albeit for different reasons, says Logicalis, an international provider of integrated information and communications technology (ICT) solutions and services. Politics aside, Logicalis says CIOs and CTOs are becoming so comfortable with the cloud that some important trends are emerging with respect to CIOs' cloud usage.
"The cloud has become an expectation more so than a novelty in IT today, so it’s not surprising that discussions among top IT pros are taking a new turn, focusing on the type of cloud solution that can be of most benefit to a company, the best ways to deploy a cloud strategy and the kinds of value-added services that can be bundled with that cloud offering," says Vince DeLuca, COO, Logicalis.
Such discussions have led to a series of emerging trends that bear further scrutiny by the entire cloud community – vendors and users alike. To help clients quickly identify important topics for discussion in the cloud, Logicalis has compiled a list of five trends that prove there’s no reason to protest moving mission-critical data into the cloud any longer.
