Cloud Chaos is coming. As companies migrate to web-
based solutions, they are adopting federated
applications that were never designed to work
together. These applications overlap and inter fere
when sharing data. The best attempts at integrating
applications cannot overcome their shaky architecture.

COMPANIES NEED A PL ATFORM THAT GROWS WITH THEM
QBOS is the solution. Applications on QBOS evolve as
the company’s data does. All user-created and third-
par ty apps are automatically and seamlessly integrated
together to keep the system working. This unique quality
enables users to create an array of highly scalable,
sustainable, and sharable solutions.
“Spending on Cloud Computing will
account for 25% of IT spending growth in
2012, reaching nearly $42 billion, and
nearly a third of growth in 2013.”

“There are two ways in technology to get a
differentiated value. One is to have truly unique,
differentiated functionality that people can’t get easily
anywhere else, or else to have a platform with a real
ecosystem around it. And you’re going to have to do
one or both to make money in this business.”
