Special Report: Mergers, Acquisitions & IPOs Rocking the Cloud Market

The cloud computing market is in a constant state of flux, with new services and technologies being added on an almost daily basis. This year has proved no different.

However, 2017 started off with a series of mergers and acquisitions in the cloud space that have accelerated those changes. Hewlett Packard Enterprise inked three deals in four months, while Cisco paid $3.7 billion for AppDynamics as that startup was about to go public.

Microsoft, VMware, Intel and a host of other large tech companies have also cut deals that will add new capabilities to their cloud portfolios as well.

In addition, a rash of initial public offerings (IPOs) from Mulesoft, Cloudera and other startups have fueled new interest in going public. With those firms flush with cash, analysts expect even more deals as the market enters the second half of 2017.
