This report examines in-depth the top cloud providers for 2019 which have maintained their positions compared to previous years.
The infrastructure-as-a-service dispute is with no doubt led by Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform, according to the research. However, new technologies including artificial intelligence and machine learning, the report notes, have opened up the battle to new companies.
The report includes several articles by industry experts on the most appropriate practices for choosing an IaaS vendor, the main tech trends that are shaping infrastructure and operations at present, and the key questions a company should ask before choosing an IaaS vendor.
The study features as well an article with four indicators on when it is the right time to move to a platform-as-a-service provider: cost of ownership is driven by hardware and ongoing licensing costs; time to market is stopped by corporate bureaucracy; IT spends more time managing assets than giving value; it’s difficult to get new applications up and running.
The report also gives insight into the factors to consider when selecting a SaaS vendor and best practices when managing a software-as-a-service vendor relationship. Regarding the hybrid cloud, the report details among other aspects the key pitfalls to avoid in a business hybrid cloud strategy.
