Cloud Transformation

Covering the technology and services, economics and business models driving enterprise cloud transformation, and the re-invention of the IT industry.


The Cloud Transformation Channel provides a point of intellectual convergence for our organization around cloud and digital transformation. We track firms bringing innovation and disruptive approaches to support cloud and digital transformation at end organizations – whether it’s technology or services, economics or business models. The worlds of hosting, cloud, outsourcing, systems integration, telco, distribution and technology vendors are converging on this opportunity, and in the process, these market participants must re-invent themselves. The Cloud Transformation Channel also tracks how the industry is itself being transformed by cloud, how this opportunity can be addressed, and what investment opportunities will be presented as part of these transformations.
