Despite the hype, media attention, increase in adoption and, frankly the increase in cloud services being offered, the cloud is still a relatively new technology with many questions still to be answered. The concept of moving sensitive business information and applications into an off-premises environment managed by a third party is profoundly changing how businesses think about, purchase, and manage technology, and how IT groups deliver services in the managed services marketplace. The presentation discusses what is dominating the cloud landscape and what the next major shifts will be, and why cloud is reinventing the way we do business.
