WALTHAM, Mass., -- North Bridge, an inception-to-growth stage venture capital firm today announced the launch of its fifth annual Future of Cloud Computing Survey in partnership with research analyst firm, Wikibon, and 36 collaborating cloud companies, to date. When the study first began market hype outpaced adoption of cloud computing. Today, SaaS, long at the vanguard of cloud adoption, has grown five-fold from 2011 to 2014. Yet issues like security, cloud interoperability and vendor lock-in all warrant broader discussion on the part of the industry as it forges ahead. The program is vendor-agnostic and supported by companies large and small. All participants are encouraged to follow @futureofcloud and use #futureofcloud to join the discussion on Twitter.
