Today SolveDirect announced it has joined the Cloud Computing Consortium (C3), connecting with 130 other industry and academic cloud leaders including some of the world’s largest technology companies. “Cloud services offer huge advantage for organizations, but often come with unexpected maintenance and operational challenges.” said Jim McDonnell, President, Americas & Chief Product Officer at SolveDirect. “The Cloud Computing Consortium’s focus is beyond technology and into how business and IT leaders can work together to plan, transition and operate successfully with cloud services, and SolveDirect is thrilled to contribute its decade of cloud-based, multi-sourced IT services software and implementation experience to help accelerate industry success.”
Accelerated Adoption of Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is projected to grow to $241B by 2020 from $41B in 2011, according to Forrester. Companies which have adopted cloud strategies have seen major business benefits and new opportunities but often face technical and commercial challenges which will influence the speed of industry wide adoption.
