“Traditionally cloud computing has been perceived as a great leveller in business. The cloud has allowed small and medium businesses to compete on a more level playing field with their enterprise rivals by removing the need for upfront capital investments that had previously proved prohibitive for smaller businesses.

The recent move of two business software developers to the cloud, Adobe and Microsoft, is symptomatic of the sea change that is taking place. Adobe’s Creative Cloud and Microsoft’s Office 365 are evidence of two large scale software applications that have independently embraced the cloud. Such high-level endorsement of the cloud demonstrates how the technology behind it is maturing and becoming more mainstream in its adoption. After all, many applications are now written specifically for the cloud, a trend that enterprises will need to accept if they are to keep pace with rival organisations.”
