IT buyers to go "cloud first" in 2014

Next year will mark the first time the majority of IT service customers will take a “cloud first” approach, according to Fronde CTO James Valentine.

Valentine said 2013 was characterised by a dramatic surge in adoption of cloud platforms.

Next year, interest in the cloud is poised to grow even further, he said. “[IT vendors are] still educating the market on the features and benefits of cloud computing, but we’ve certainly turned a corner. The year ahead will see the majority of customers mandating ‘cloud first’ in their platform selection criteria.”

Valentine also predicts that 2014 will be the year that ‘mobile first’ will become the norm when designing new IT applications, meaning features such as dynamically adapting text and other content to screen resolution will become a non-negotiable requirement.
