Companies are migrating to the cloud at increasing rates across the globe. At the forefront of this move are companies in the US and Western Europe, according to a report from ResearchandMarkets.com. Though many companies have only completed 20 percent of their cloud journey, industries and regions continue to emerge with new solutions to meet industry challenges, differentiate from the competition and delight clients.

“IBM is writing the next chapter of business and social transformation together with our clients,” IBM Chairman, President and CEO Ginni Rometty shared in a company statement. “Companies across Europe and the world are working with IBM to put the hybrid cloud infrastructure in place and to start infusing AI into businesses processes as a means to accelerate future innovation.”
