Well, January is coming to an end. So no doubt we’ve all had our fill of technology and business predictions for 2015…
I could, for example, state the statistic that cloud spending is expected to increase from $156bn in 2014 to $183bn in 2015, or that by the end of 2017 half of large enterprises will be using hybrid clouds. They’re impressive figures and show what is for us at least (as a cloud service provider!) an encouraging trend.
And? So what?
But do they really mean anything to you as a potential user of cloud infrastructure? What relevance do these uptake statistics have to you, your business, and your decision about the way that you work with IT now and in the future? Unless you’re one to jump on the bandwagon simply because everyone else is (apparently) doing it, I doubt they carry much weight or significance.
