UK on Cusp of Cloud Boom
Cloud Computing is on the cusp of a major boon in the UK, largely driven by enterprises' desire to cut costs and become more scalable.

Vizard cites Deloitte Consulting analyst Chris Weitz, who believes cloud computing will become ubiquitous in the enterprise within the next three years.
