Companies that provide outstanding cloud application development services are in increased demand as more businesses realize the technology’s ability to boost efficiency and save costs. As a result, the global cloud applications market is expected to reach $168.6B by 2025. [1]

However, as the market grows, it becomes harder to find a partner that can provide reliable and high-quality cloud development services. To help you choose the right one, we have compiled a list of the world's top cloud application development companies. 

Selection criteria

We created a set of criteria that all of the chosen companies must match. These are as follows: 

  • At least five years on the market;
  • 10+ client reviews on Clutch;
  • Clutch rank 4.7 or higher;
  • 200 or more IT experts on board (Such vendors are more likely to have optimized development processes and usually have access to a significant number of engineers, which ensures quick project starter);
  • Extensive portfolio of cloud application development projects.

Most companies on Clutch that match these criteria are located in Europe, Asia, and Latin America. It is also important to note that while many listed companies have headquarters in the USA, their development centers are located abroad.

How to choose the right cloud development company for your business

Making the right choice when selecting a tech partner is as hard as important. However, following the following best practices will significantly raise your chances of success.

1. Choose the right location

Before looking for a tech partner, you first have to decide where to look for one. As mentioned before, there are three main destinations for IT service outsourcing—Asia, Europe, and South America—each with its benefits and drawbacks. However, Europe is the most optimal choice in terms of location, time differences, cultural similarities, and expertise. 

When looking for cloud application development companies in Europe, there are obvious sweet spots like Poland, Ukraine, Bulgaria, or Romania. These countries offer a large IT talent pool (available for outsourcing), many experienced service providers, high overall English knowledge, and some of the most skilled tech experts in the world.

2. Evaluate your partner’s cloud computing expertise

To make sure that your partner has sufficient cloud development expertise, make sure that they have the following:

  • Partnerships with the three main cloud service providers: AWS, Azure, GCP;
  • Engineers with official certifications from these three cloud service providers;
  • Compliance with international data security standards and best practices for mitigating security risks in the cloud;
  • Proven experience in cloud adoption, migration, cloud-native development, hybrid, multi-cloud, and cloud-agnostic management, etc.;
  • Hands-on experience with building microservices and various data solutions;
  • Highly skilled DevOps engineers on board.

3. Assess the partner’s ability to retain and scale your team

Cloud development often requires quick team scaling up or down as the workload on such projects is prone to change. Your partner has to be able to reassure you about their capabilities for quick recruitment and employee rotation.

In this sense, bigger cloud application development companies have an advantage over smaller ones. With access to more internal resources, they can easily rotate employees between projects and provide the necessary capacity where it is needed. 

Furthermore, pay close attention to your partner’s employee retention rate. Knowledge retention is essential in longer-lasting projects such as cloud development. Therefore, make sure that your partner provides good working conditions, fair compensation, training, and growth opportunities that encourage employees to stay with the company.
