Big Blue crashes into on the cloud party

Written by Mark Evans

Forbes magazine has run an interesting analysis of the relative positions of the major cloud suppliers, with Microsoft top, and Amazon and IBM close behind.

With total revenue of $76.3 billion, Microsoft ($18.6 billion), Amazon ($17.5 billion) and IBM ($17.0 billion) together took 2017 cloud revenue of $53.1 billion, meanwhile Google it had revenues of over $1B in Q4 revenue. But most surprising is that IBM outsold both Microsoft and Amazon in the cloud in Q4. Oracle, SAP and Google together created revenue of $13 billion.
