Cloud Computing - UK - December 2016

“Cloud computing continues to make further inroads into the IT market. The combined prospects of lower and controllable costs and total scaleablilty are seductive enticements to both enterprises and SMEs, with the latter firms also suffering from a lack of skills that is conveniently addressed by contracting out applications. The cloud market is also unusual as uncertain economic conditions are likely to increase uptake, with the market one of the few expected to be boosted by the Brexit decision.”
