Did you know? Facts & stats about the cloud


The cloud computing market is rapidly evolving, and ever changing. Which can mean that making a decision on the best route for your business, can sometimes be a daunting task. Arming yourself with the facts, and taking advice from experts is the best way to proceed.

According to Report Linker, the global cloud computing market is expected to reach $623.3 billion by 2023, and according to the Flexera 2020 State of the Cloud Report - a report which explores the thoughts of 750 global cloud decision makers - 61 percent of organisations plan to focus on cloud migration. This could mean that a delay to shift all, or some elements of your infrastructure to the cloud, could potentially put you on the backfoot against your competitors. 

Here are some more facts and stats about the cloud to get you thinking, and help you with your digital business decision making…

The number of users for desktop virtualisation (DaaS) will grow by over 150% between 2020 and 2023

Different businesses are at different stages of cloud maturity, and this will dictate to a great extent, the varying levels of investment and innovation. But it’s wrong to assume that only enterprise level businesses are ahead of the technology curve. What cloud does, is make enterprise grade computing available to the SME market, and makes it affordable. Cloud isn’t just for the “big boys.”

When you are ready to embark on your cloud journey, it’s important that you ask any potential cloud providers the right questions. Our free guide - 10 questions you should be asking your cloud provider - can help with that. 

Cloud security will always be a hot, and very important topic of conversation, and you can learn more about that in our free download - Your cloud security guide.
