Unlike the present, the future, however, is very promising:
Sixty percent of companies want to use cloud services (400% growth) and the country as a whole is expected to invest 1.6 billion per year (600% growth).

In addition, Spain is, along with Ireland, the country of the European Union where a greater number of companies want to adopt multi-cloud strategies: up to 85% of companies with cloud services want to diversify their online services.
The services that expect more growth are Security, Marketing, Information Technology Service Management and Digital Asset Management.
The most popular reasons for using cloud services are Flexibility (81%), Transformation and Organizational Change (61%), and Time to Market (59%).
Mainly, the sectors that most demand the use of SAAS are Banking, Energy and Logistics.
It is also expected a growth of PaaS of up to 25%, which will grow taking a percentage away from IaaS (which will keep 40%) and SaaS (which will have 35%).
