Myself and the Softcat marketing team were recently thinking about how we start this years company kick off event. Some sort of presentation / images to calm the room down and focus everyones attention. We decided to put together a series of facts and figures that decribed the world we live in today. The sort of facts we uncovered were just incredible. So much so, that we decided to put them together in a quick video to share with you all.... Some of these facts are simply amazing!

Here are a few tasters:

  • Enterprise IT Cloud spend will approach £130bn by 2016
  • Within two years half your IT budget may be spent on cloud computing
  • 50bn devices will be connected to the internet by 2020
  • More data has been created in the past 12 months than in the previous 12 years
  • By 2049 a $1,000 computer will exceed the computational capabilities of the entire human species
