Moving assets into the cloud

Smaller companies will be much less likely to use cloud for data warehousing and application development in two years, but will be more likely to have proprietary applications in the cloud by then.

Next week, we will explore more applications that are moving to the cloud, including disaster recovery, supply chain, sales and service, and core business functions.
