Cloud computing has become the de facto platform for fueling digital transformations and modernizing IT portfolios. Companies are increasingly finding business agility or cost savings by renting software through vendors such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft and Google. In fact, most enterprises procure cloud services from two or more vendors, a trend that will gain traction in 2019. This will boost the coffers of AWS, Microsoft, Alibaba, Google, IBM and Oracle, which will enjoy the lion’s share of the $200 billion in global public cloud spending for 2019, according to Forrester Research. Despite the strict demands of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the cloud’s geographic expansion won’t be slowing down, as vendors will expand their service portfolios and regional footprints worldwide.

Then came March, and the first wave of the Covid-19 pandemic hit U.S. shores. In the course of one weekend, Dell pivoted to having more than 90% of its workforce working from home.
