Silicon 360: Do you agree with our cloud panel on the evolution of the cloud?

Cloud strategies

Our panel said that whereas a few years ago, cloud-able businesses might have elected to throw every single application at one public cloud vendor just because it was on trend – organisations were taking a more considered approach.

While our panellists disagreed on how far along these plans were – particularly with reference to privacy and cost – there was a consensus that things had changed.

You can see this discussion, and many more, on our Silicon 360 microsite, but we want you to get involved. So let us know in our poll below!
