Cloud Computing Overview

The shift to cloud computing has created new opportunities for investment and innovation, like the shift from centralized mainframe computers to the current distributed model with the advent of personal computers which both HH and myself were fortunate to witness and were part of the change. We believe and we are seeing the move to cloud computing has resulted in a significant wave of technological innovation in areas such as Cloud networking infrastructure, Cloud applications, Cloud storage, Cloud services, and Cyber security. The pandemic has accelerated the adoption of cloud computing, with an increasing number of companies and corporations shifting their IT infrastructure to the Cloud. We believe that the cloud business segment will continue to grow at a rapid pace. Over 98% of organizations use the cloud in some way, and cloud infrastructure spending is estimated to increase by 23% in 2023.
