For many of us in the IT industry there is a certain feeling that cloud computing is finally taking a grip on UK businesses, more companies seem to be taking the plunge into the cloud and putting a greater number of applications into the cloud.
But how significant is this change and is it reality or just perception? Are we genuinely seeing greater mainstream adoption?
Last year, the cloud landscape was at a tipping point, several years of vendor hype and industry expectation had taken its toll. Despite great promises of cost and efficiency savings, uptake was still limited and reservations remained. Companies were aware of the benefits cloud offered, but were hesitant to move towards full-scale adoption.
