Disruption was the buzz-word of 2014. But before disruption might occur one needs to be brave. There’s no disruption without being audacious first. Acting audacious was a risky endeavour in the past. It required a substantial budget and that frightened people to be audacious. With cloud computing, the cost of failure has lowered drastically. Cloud computing powers audacious ideas. Cloud computing facilitates disruptive innovation. 

This seminar demonstrates the power of Google Cloud for marketing purposes. How does Google Cloud empower you to behave audacious and consequently disrupt existing businesses and industries?

How Leading Cloud Services Providers Market Share Evolved in 2014

by Luc Van Haver

How did Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform and IBM Softlayer relate to each other in terms of marketshare in 2014?

Amazon Web Services (AWS) had 25 percent revenue growth from the third quarter to the fourth quarter, giving it a 30 percent global market share in the last quarter of 2014, according to a report from Synergy Research Group. AWS’s year-over-year revenue growth was 51 percent.

Amazon was able to grab that marketshare despite a strong third-quarter push from cloud rival Microsoft , which showed the highest year-over-year revenue growth — 96 percent — last quarter. Microsoft is in second place in the market with about 11 percent share.

With strong 81 percent year-over-year revenue growth, Google advanced but was unable to grab the third-place spot from IBM which has about 7 percent of the market, compared to Google’s 5 percent, noted Synergy Research.

“Many actual or perceived barriers to cloud adoption have now been removed and the worldwide market is on a strong growth trajectory,” said John Dinsdale, Synergy’s chief analyst and research director, in a statement. “The momentum that has been built up at AWS and Microsoft is particularly impressive. They have an ever-broadening portfolio of services and they are also benefitting from a slowdown in the super-aggressive price competition that was a feature of the first half of 2014.”

Synergy estimates that overall quarterly cloud infrastructure service revenues are nearing the $5 billion mark. Worldwide revenue for all of 2014, which grew 48 percent year over year, exceeded $16 billion.
