A short time after the turn of the century, large tech companies such as Google and Amazon started to refer to the delivery of software over the web as ‘cloud computing’. Although the term was somewhat older, the mid to late noughties marks the point at which cloud computing entered common usage and the technology started being considered seriously as a delivery method for enterprise IT systems.
So successful was the technology that by 2015, 90% of global enterprises reported using the cloud as part of their business. Today, the global cloud market is worth more than $325bn and has arguably done more than most technologies to bring about the disruptive digital innovations that define the modern business world.
But this path to success was by no means assured. The cloud by its nature requires that enterprise IT teams relinquish some control of their systems and data to third parties. Preventing widespread adoption was the belief that cloud computing was less secure than on-premise systems and that opening up to cloud services would seriously expose businesses.
Given cloud adoption rates today, to some extent these concerns have been overcome. But how does Cloud Computing play in your organisations IT strategy today and in the future? Join our excellent networking dinner to discuss with your peers and experts from Nominet to understand how cloud computing can be an business enabler.
