State of the Cloud 2017 from Bessemer Venture Partners

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?
