Cloud Adoption becomes mainstream in 2015

Findings by the Synergy Research Group (SRG) reveal that 2015 was the year when cloud computing moved well beyond the early-adopter phase and barriers to adoption continue to diminish. 

The public cloud sector is the fastest-growing part of the overall off-premise infrastructure market during the 12 months to September 2015.
Operator and supplier revenue across all areas was up 28% on the previous year to hit €101bn.
The amount spent on public cloud infrastructure services grew by 51% over the tracking period, while private and hybrid cloud saw growth of 45%.    
The public cloud, private cloud and hybrid cloud infrastructure services markets each grew by at least 16%. 

Investments also had a follow-on impact for the cloud infrastructure services market, helping firms in the infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) sector generate revenue of about €18bn.
