I look at the continued rise of eCommerce and the number of occurrneces Akamai is mentioned as the content delivery networks for the Hot 100 top retail sites (according to Internet Retailer). This includes companies like Walgreen's, Amazon.com (for their mobile), iTunes, The Limited brands, and more.

Cyber Monday sales increased 19.4% according to Coremetrics, and this is one sector that is continuing to drive results year over year. Akamai allows eCommerce retailers to keep sites up when there is an influx of traffic without buying more servers. This is why I believe Akamai will continue to drive more revenues and more clients in the future.

I say only two to four years, because technology moves so fast that something else might come out in this time. But for now Akamai looks strong.
