While the continued growth of the cloud is assured, there seems to be little evidence that there will be a lot of organizations that will be moving their entire infrastructure into the public cloud anytime soon.

And as consumers become more accustomed to digital speeds, and accessing information or performing transactions with the tap of a screen, the pressure on business in terms of time to respond is accelerating.
