According to Sid Nag, vice president of research at Gartner, cloud services are driving the IT industry.
We do not know of any provider that today’s business model, its offer and the growth of its revenues are not influenced by the growing adoption of cloud strategies. However, what we see now is only the beginning.
Gartner anticipates that, by 2022, the size of the market and the growth of the cloud services industry will almost triple the growth of IT services in general.
