Over the past few years, the cloud computing marketplace has grown exponentially. Spending on cloud services has increased and the industry has grown more than traditional IT, and it only continues to move in that direction.
While many cloud computing organizations see these rising industry trends as a positive outlook for the future of their business, at Bluelock, we realized that such fast growth in the market was going to create some major challenges for us in the future — good challenges that we were excited about, but obstacles to overcome, nonetheless.
Bluelock began to evaluate the playing field and came to the conclusion that, in order to continue our growth as intended, we needed to carve out a niche for ourselves and hone our expertise in a smaller segment of the marketplace.
