Overview

The Cloud has moved beyond simply computing to encompass communications, applications, content, and commerce. Approximately 90% of global Internet users already depend on the Cloud, either directly through consumer services, or indirectly through their service provider's reliance upon various Cloud as a Service solutions on a business-to-business (B2B). While the Cloud ecosystem has enjoyed much success on a B2B basis to this point, the significant growth trajectory lies in the opportunity for Business-to-Consumer (B2C) Cloud services.

Mobile consumers currently leverage the Cloud to store and consume media, and sync their apps, files, and data across devices. We see these services evolving to include replacement of many non-Cloud offerings as well as many new services spawn from the unique Cloud delivery model and capabilities. However, current obstacles include consumer confusion about Cloud Services in terms of the value in helping discover, access, and organize digital goods and services.
