IT outsourcing in the UK is leaning increasingly towards cloud computing, according to industry experts.

Writing on, IT operations and infrastructure analyst James Staten claimed that the technology is especially packaged to fit the needs of small business IT.

On its blog yesterday, global sourcing advisory company TPI explained that cloud computing means companies do not need provision computing and communication resources in advance, "but merely plug into the ubiquitous 'virtual grid' to run their business processes."

At the FOSE 2008 conference in Washington DC this week, David Girouard, Google Enterprise's vice-president and general manager, suggested that cloud computing could "revolutionise" IT structure and the IT outsourcing industry, Channel Web reports.

According to the news provider, Mr Girouard said that the technology means the democratisation of information and capabilities. "Everyone ought to have equal access to information around the world," he added.

On its blog, TPI admitted that there is momentum behind the move to cloud computing, although it may be potentially disruptive to the IT outsourcing industry as its effects cannot yet be accurately foreseen.
