Why the future is in the cloud (infographic)

4 Aug 2012

If recent figures are anything to go by, cloud computing has a very bright future indeed, a new infographic illustrates.

Uberflip has released an infographic that is published on Visual.ly that states by 2016 more than one-third of the world’s digital content will be stored in the cloud, and the global market for cloud computing will grow to more than US$241bn by 2020.

IDC has even estimated that spending on public and private IT cloud services will generate nearly 14m jobs worldwide by 2015, with more than half of these to be in small and medium-sized firms.

The infographic delivers other facts and figures about cloud computing, as well as outlines the top 10 companies in cloud computing, the top 3 attributes of cloud (according to marketers), and brands that are successfully using cloud-based tools.
