End-user cloud computing spending continues to show healthy double-digit growth rates, and now is the right time for innovative cloud startups to help organizations move beyond pandemic-accelerated migrations of coronavirus to more fully exploit the hottest part of the tech industry.
Gartner expects global public cloud end-user spending to grow 23.1% this year to $ 332.3 billion. Growth will be driven in part by emerging technologies – including containerization, virtualization and advanced computing – becoming more mainstream, according to the research and consultancy firm. Pandemic has been a “multiplier” of CIOs interest in the cloud, says Gartner vice president of research Sid Nag, who sees the cloud as the “glue” between other technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) that CIOs want to use.
Established cloud providers and their investment branches are stepping up their games to support startups with new programs to help start-ups and expose them to their own corporate clients. Amazon Web Services launched the AWS Global Partner Network Starter Program in 2019 to help startups with compelling enterprise products better leverage its benefits, including its go-to-market efforts. And Salesforce Ventures, the investment arm of leader in customer relationship management Salesforce, announced a new $ 100 million fund last October to accelerate the growth of cloud companies.
