wpid-thumbnailA recent UBS survey of corporate information technology executives found that the biggest players in the cloud market, including IBM, will continue to grow.

“Cloud is not a winner-take-all market,” the report stated, noting that IBM will “hold its own” and is among the top four cloud providers. In particular, IBM is strong in the arena of platform as a service (PaaS), which involves the development of applications that run on a cloud infrastructure.
