Comment

The cloud is one of the biggest IT revolutions of recent years. It provides scalability, flexibility, speed of data processing, deployments, and environment preparation. It allows access to the latest technological solutions, enabling the creation and delivery of innovative solutions. It offers a range of diversified services that can be tailored to one's own needs. An increasing number of enterprises are using public and private clouds.

In this year's report, we see that the most popular clouds in Poland are Azure and AWS. Google Cloud Platform is the third most popular cloud. There is a significant share of Oracle cloud for database solutions. It is also worth noting that employees from all surveyed IT areas had contact with cloud technologies. The report also shows that there are IT employees who have not yet had contact with cloud solutions, however, this group is smaller than the year before.

At Uniqa, we create solutions based on the public Azure cloud and a private cloud. We have built and are developing internal cloud competencies, DevOps, and an agile software development model.
