On the other hand, the likes of Microsoft’s Azure or Amazon’s Web Services will continue to be significant catalysts for large scale migrations into the cloud. While data security and scalability will always be a key factor for large and small businesses, cloud solutions will continue to move up the boardroom agenda.
