State of the Cloud Report In 2017

Cloud Report 2017

As the definitive guide to the biggest trends in the cloud industry, this year’s “State of the Cloud Report” includes:

1. A Look Back at 2016 

  • 2016 was a marquee year for a number of reasons. First, we all remember the rocky start in February where the Cloud Market dropped 35%
  •  Subsequently, rebounded back to normal levels and ended the year up +15%
  • The dip in the market had two main outcomes: First, it led to unprecedented amounts of M&A (4x more than any other year and 40% of the total cloud market cap of $300B) – and second, it led to the fewest number of cloud tech IPOs since the financial crisis.
  • A combination of these factors has led to the highest quality backlog of private cloud companies in history. The top 100 private Cloud companies alone represent over $100B of private enterprise value.

2. We provide a deeper look into the three top questions every private cloud CEO should be discussing with his/her executive team.

  • How fast should I be growing?
  • How much should I burn?
  • How do I scale?

 3. Bessemer’s 7 Predictions for 2017

  • The year of human assisted AI
  • APIs will serve as the backbone for a majority of software infrastructure
  • Architect for infinite scale without infinite spend
  • Mobile unlocks non-desk worker productivity
  • NPS everything
  • Diverse teams win
  • The screenless software movement

Here’s a look at the 2016 State of Cloud for your reference.
