Futuriom 40 Webinar On Demand

Futuriom 40 Cover

By: R. Scott Raynovich

In 2021, Futuriom launched the Futuriom 40: Cloud Trends and Top Private Companies report. This report has proven to be one of the most popular resources on cloud infrastructure technology. In the report, we detailed the top trends as well as private companies as voted by our team of analysts.

The report was the culmination of several months of work in which our analyst team reviewed all of our Cloud Market Trend Reports for 2021 and selected the top trends and private companies for the year.

As part of a new annual tradition, we hosted a webinar on February 16, in which our analysts discussed the details of the 2022 Futuriom 40 report, including the top trends in cloud infrastructure as well as the 40 new companies on our list.
