The hosting tribunal has some interesting statistics to show for the way the cloud is being adopted and leveraged by enterprises globally. Looking at a $623.3 billion market by 2023 globally, the cloud is fast becoming the preferred business investment by almost 95% of all enterprises that are already using the cloud in their workloads, with almost 5 different platforms for their workloads. More than 80% of this workload will be on the cloud this year. IT budgets are also becoming increasingly open to the advantages and RoI that the cloud offers- globally, almost 30% of all IT budgets are being allocated to cloud computing. With half of all enterprises globally sending on an average more than $1.2 million on cloud services annually, the trend for the cloud to play a critical role in enterprise technology is extremely bullish.
While these advantages are common knowledge among enterprises, adoption and implementation of cloud infrastructure is not an easy task. It needs an experienced and extremely supportive technology partner to deliver this advantage while meeting all challenges of technology upgrades.
The most critical aspect is to identify the right cloud solution amidst a host of advantages and returns.

Achieving the correct business fit makes all the difference between a successful and a failed adoption (which may also mean a high financial loss).
