What is the third wave of the cloud?

We are entering a new era of cloud computing – perhaps the biggest era yet with cloud-related spending expected to reach nearly $1 trillion by 2030.

In the third wave, customers no longer new to the cloud are using a diverse set of cloud building blocks to create digital experiences that connect and engage customers and employees in a whole new way.

These digital initiatives, built from the ground up and constantly evolving, will be supported by a new generation of service providers. The third wave cloud consultancies.
