For years industry experts such as Gartner and Forrester have been forecasting the growth of hosted services, but many businesses have been slow to embrace ‘the Cloud’. Some organizations are leery of posting sensitive company data in the cloud while others have business needs that are not met in current hosted offerings. Many are doing business as usual adopting a ‘wait and see’ attitude to see how technology evolves, but recent events may bring big changes to the way many see cloud services.
Just last month Microsoft released Office 365 globally and Apple announced its plans for iCloud development. With big players such as these developing hosted offerings for the masses, cloud services are sure to become more commonplace. Some think that technology is just advancing to meet consumer and business demands while others believe hosted solutions are designed to benefit solution providers with long-term, residual customers. Whatever the case a major front has moved in and the forecast is changing.
