50 Top Quality Cloud Vendors to Explore
The pursuit of quality is driving Web companies
to turn to the cloud for seemingly everything these
days — from application processing to data
storage and security.
Whether the business goal is to reduce costs, increase agility, remove operational and maintenance issues or future- proof the digital enterprise, cloud computing is the next great IT frontier. Let this month’s Website Magazine Top 50 provide you with an opportunity to explore what’s possible, in and around the cloud, in your enterprise’s quest to provide a better overall experience.
There is no information shortage on the immense improvements to efficiency and performance that migrating toward the cloud (and cloud computing in general) can provide. While cloud adoption has been relatively slow, the outlook is rapidly changing. SilverSky’s recent Silver Lining Report of 200 U.S. chief information officers and senior-level security decision makers revealed that 67 percent have increasing confidence in the cloud with 30 percent maintaining the same level and just 3 percent indicating a decrease in confidence. The cloud isn’t coming — it’s already here.
As a result, a regular audit of the vendor landscape remains useful from time to time, revealing solutions that you may not have even known existed. Web professionals need to start exploring the cloud to ensure a highquality digital experience is developed and deployed for users (and their own brand) now and in the future and in whatever way an enterprise needs.
This month’s Website Magazine Top 50 focuses on those companies, platforms and services that help digitalminded enterprises like yours provide an optimal (quality) cloud-driven computing experience for its audience in some technical capacity. From infrastructure and security, to storage and platforms as a service, there’s not a company or vendor service listed here that does not, in some way, provide the necessary support in the quest for digital success.
