Last week, Talkin’ Cloud hosted a webinar announcing their pick for the Top 100 Cloud Services Providers (CSPs). This list ranks the world’s Top 100 CSPs, according to Penton’s sixth-annual Talkin’ Cloud 100 report. Take a look at Xcentric’s ranking.
This webinar started with an overview of the cloud now, projections for the future of the cloud and a Q&A with leading professionals from other CSPs. There were some good tidbits of information that I took away from this webinar. Particularly, this statement:
Enterprise IT cloud infrastructure spending will rise by almost 19 percent to 37.2 percent in 2016, as spending on non- cloud environments declines, according to IDC.
There were a few other statements, all which pointed towards the inevitable shift for all companies to move to the cloud. Why wait until you’re forced to make that shift? Plan ahead, be prepared, and start now.
