Business Growth Plan: Prepare for the cloud

The cloud revolution is still in its infancy, but all the major players are already hard at work to get ahead. 

Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Apple – they’re all already working in the cloud and developing products. 

Dan Cobley, marketing director at Google, explains: “In the future, all of your devices will exist in the cloud. If you lose your notebook computer, you’ll just be able to pick up a new one and start where you left off, instantly.” 

With the cloud computing market still in its infancy, opportunities for fast-growing businesses are vast. IDC predicts that spending on public IT cloud services will hit £46bn in 2015 (up from £13.4bn in 2010).

The opportunities are two-fold: (1) for you to develop products for the cloud; and (2) to move your business processes into the cloud.

What are you waiting for?
