Mature Megavendors Gaining Ground in Cloud Computing 

Data from the January 2024 Technology Spending Intentions Survey (TSIS) showed notable Net Score growth for large, mature tech companies, such as Oracle, IBM, and Dell Technologies. In particular, these established megavendors saw impressive gains in spending momentum in the Cloud Computing sector.
