Quiz yourself on the top cloud acquisitions of 2019

Enterprise needs constantly evolve, so cloud providers must keep their offerings fresh, often through acquisitions. Do you know the biggest buys from 2019? Let's see.

IT pros are on the lookout for comprehensive migration tools and services to ease the transition to the public cloud. And with the popularity of hybrid and multi-cloud models, there is increasing demand for interoperability, integration and data analytics services that can span across environments.
