Cloud Computing Reigns on PROFIT's Top 200 Fastest Growing Companies List
If you look at the list of PROFIT’s Top 200 Fastest Growing Canadian Companies for 2012 there appears to be a healthy attendance of companies offering cloud computing solutions.
Of the top 10 fastest growing Canadian companies offering a cloud-based solution into 2012, Avigilon, offers high-def security surveillance software over a cloud. In 4th place is Varicent with incentive-compensation cloud software. GuestLogix in 6th offers portable merchandising software for use in the travel industry.
A Study released by Stefan Ried, Ph.D. and Holger Kisker, Ph.D. under Forester Research reports that global cloud industry is currently worth about $40.7 billion in 2011 and is projected to grow to nearly $241 billion in 2020.
The evidence suggests that cloud computing’s presence is strong and is only getting stronger.
More and more companies are opting to implement cloud services. Cloud services are an attractive option to companies, because the pricing is variable, the software is updated regularly and it is customized to suit your business needs. Tracking costs from cloud services and IT devices will become more and more relevant, in the same way that telecom expense management has become important, in recent times, especially for enterprise.
We have implemented IT and cloud service tracking to help companies maintain control of these new types of service applications and hardware. So, if you are having problems managing the cost of the cloud, you may want to contact us.
