How to Know When a Cloud Computing Trend Has Come to Its End
We’re well over a decade into the era of cloud computing, and during that time we have seen one cloud computing trend after another.

Once companies made that switch, the adoption of other types of cloud services–like IaaS and SaaS–often followed.
