    Cloud Forecast: Where It's Been and Where It's Heading-

    Cloud in 2014

    When Amazon first announced its Lambda offering in 2014, it solved major market pain points by eliminating the need to rewrite applications and provision computer infrastructure. The service is designed to make it easy for developers to bring solutions to market faster and more cost effectively, without server-related concerns.

    Other public cloud hosts, such as Google Compute Cloud and Microsoft Azure Cloud, also saw momentum as they similarly helped drive down costs while adding new features that made cloud even more practical for enterprises.

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.
