Growth in value-add + decline in infrastructure prices = cloud market evolution

In 2016, the Cloud Price Index saw prices fall 60% more on basic infrastructure services than on services higher up the stack. Providers are taking notice. The availability of object storage, SQL and NoSQL as services rose globally by 18% during the same period. Providers are evolving to add greater value as infrastructure opportunities wane.
