How multi-cloud solutions benefit the public & private sectors

SUMMARY

This paper on the cloud computing competitive market notes that market monopolization similar to what happened in the operating systems market constitutes a serious threat.

The cloud computing market has not stopped growing over the past few years and will continue doing so. It is already worth about USD 200 billion – around twice its value four years ago.

According to this study, multi-cloud strategies improve competition among cloud computing companies helping therefore to prevent just one company dominating the whole industry.

In its role of regulators, governments can also help to set the market conditions and create standards that help smaller cloud computing service providers to sell their products to different European countries. Standardization would also be beneficial to consumers so that they can use different cloud service providers or use their own "data" when changing providers".

This study examines the cloud computing market and describes the present trend towards market concentration. The benefits and challenges that cloud computing presents are also discussed in this document. The document also offers an overview of the public sector as a source of demand for cloud solutions, showing how it can benefit from multi-cloud solutions.

The report finishes with several recommendations for decision-makers and highlights the dual role of governments as buyers of cloud services and as regulators in the cloud market. 

The research is based on interviews with cloud users and providers and with experts from public administrations and the private sector. These interviews were completed with an analysis of extensive data and study documents.
