The IT world is moving solutions to the cloud at an unprecedented rate. Any service which can be hosted is being offered in the cloud. And customers are picking it up - Gartner estimates that public cloud expenditure will grow by 41% to hit $206 billion in 2016.

There have been quite a few studies which took a close look at cloud computing from a customer’s perspective, yet no one has dug deep into the minds of suppliers.

To learn more about where the industry stands and where it’s heading, IT Channel Insight interviewed people from the companies that are shaping the industry: Asigra, Axcient, CA Technologies, Citrix, Dell, Google, HP, IBM, Microsoft, Rackspace, Red Hat, Salesforce, Shoretel, StorageCraft, Symantec and VMware.
