Infographic: Cloud Computing: A Cloudy Future?

June 22, 2015  |  Written by John Freimuth, Sr. Director of Business Development

What’s the state of cloud computing among businesses? What can we expect in years to come?

A new infographic from Computer Science Zone seeks to answer those questions and more. Right now, for example, 88% of companies with 1,000 employees or more use private cloud, while 63% of those same companies use public cloud. Of course, most of us already know that cloud is popular in the enterprise—but what’s next?

As the infographic “Cloud Computing: A Cloudy Future?” notes, cloud as a percentage of total IT enterprise spending is expected to increase to 11% in 2018 from 6% in 2015. What’s more, more companies are predicted to use a portfolio of clouds instead of relying solely on either private or public, and demand for cloud brokers is expected to surge.

To see the detailed answers to the questions posed above, take a look at the full infographic from Computer Science Zone below:
