According to Axway, the cloud is expected to become the primary operating system for enterprise by 2014.

Among other points, Axway explains that cloud in 2012 has become “serious” as the “hype is over”, with strong adoption of mobile devices in 2013 resulting in cloud dominating enterprise IT organisations in 2014.

Paul French, Axway vice president, said: “It is important that [enterprise IT organisations] assess their organisation’s needs in relation to which type of cloud to adopt, how they will meet their service level agreements, what enterprise application stores or marketplaces they will develop or adopt and the service management role that the IT department will play in the adoption.”
