Cloud Trends 2018: What’s Driving Companies to the Cloud

Businesses are making big bets on cloud strategies, but for unexpected reasons. So what’s driving companies to the cloud?

As IT decision makers see the benefit of cloud and become more comfortable with the technology, they have broadened their adoption of more complex technologies in the platform and application development layer of the stack, such as PaaS, containers and serverless. This increased comfortability with technology leads to the rise of adoption of other more advanced technologies, generating a virtuous cycle of adoption.

To put it another way: the more businesses use cloud, the more they want to use.

But what about the culture? How does this evolution impact the approach to culture shift within an organization? Does DevOps play into this at all?
