Published on

In a recent survey of over 400 service providers in 17 European countries and the US, we sought to examine the current state of play in the European cloud market and how service providers are addressing the growing demand for cloud.

This presentation looks at the survey data from the UK and the EU as a whole, comparing them to provide insight into the similarities and differences in these two markets.
