Cloud computing itself has evolved beyond buzzword status, and at this point most companies have embraced the cloud in some way, whether through private cloud, public cloud or hybrid cloud. But the newest untapped region of the tech and business world is industry cloud.
Industry cloud is a vertical cloud that provides tools, technologies, and business services uniquely tailored to a specific industry, such as healthcare, education or finance.
