As commoditized cloud technologies are now more than ten years old, many « as a Service » businesses have reshaped our reality, and most companies are now taking advantage of these technologies — if only as a new flexible resource. As such, most winners and losers of this first wave of cloud and SaaS are expecting to face calmer years, with tools that are now both robust and at a plateau. This is probably far from the truth. A second wave of cloud technologies is rapidly shaping up, in some cases as an even more deeply integrated and ubiquitous layer bringing APIs to any form of business… and in other cases as a full-stack vertical that can essentially replace an entire value chain on its own. These new perspectives can be challenging to grasp when your company just came to term with the first wave of cloud opportunities and threats, and say, you don’t think that self-driving cars concern you because you’re not in the automotive industry. You probably should be a tad more concerned and start to future-proof your business model!
