Cloud to become primary operating model by 2014

A new report published by Axway, the business interaction network company, has revealed that cloud computing will become the main operating model by 2014.

The technology has been growing in popularity in recent years and now it seems that IT departments are adopting the cloud more than ever.

Axway predicts that by 2014 the cloud will be the primary operating model, which will transform IT and give firms that adopt the technology early the opportunity to gain some ground on competitors.

Paul French, vice president, product and solutions marketing, Axway, said: "Cloud adoption has become increasingly complex. Enterprise IT must take steps to effectively prepare."

He said it was crucial for businesses to assess the cloud needs of their organisation in relation to the type of service required.

Cloud-based solutions look set to continue to grow as the proliferation of smartphones and tablets increase, with more businesses allowing employees to work on their personal devices.
