Sizing the Cloud Computing Market

[tweetmeme source=@LouisColumbus only_single=false]

The pace of cloud computing market forecasts produced and announced is quickening, with several new projections announced this month.  In every one of these forecasts, the benefits of operating expense (OPEX) versus capital expense (CAPEX) financing play a role, as does the emerging trust in cloud computing as a viable platform.

Having long proven itself as a viable platform for Customer Relationship Management (CRM), there are early adopters throughout Supply Chain Management (SCM), Manufacturing Execution Systems (MES) and surprisingly, Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP).

Here are the highlights of the latest cloud computing forecasts.  Over time, I plan on comparing the methodologies of these forecasts and creating an ongoing forecast index.
