It wasn’t so long ago when many industry leaders called cloud computing just another IT fad, good for creating a buzz but of no substantial use. Not so surprisingly, today cloud computing is globally integrated and accepted by leading analysts and IT experts as that one force single-handedly driving the IT landscape.
From the way data centers are created to how upgrades are handled, cloud computing is at the forefront of all important IT advancements.
Millions of companies around the world are now switching to cloud computing and infrastructure to decrease IT complexity, cut down costs, boost network visibility and ensure customer satisfaction.
In this blog post, we discuss some of the important cloud computing trends the future has in store:
Cloud Adoption Will Continue To Grow Rapidly
Cloud computing is expected to grow dramatically even after the incredible gains it has made in the past few years. Up to a quarter of all the companies around the world already use it and another 10 percent expect to make the switch soon. It is safe to say that cloud computing is well on its way to becoming the preferred technology deployment approach.
Talk About Mobile
The growing integration of mobile technologies is also going to have a big impact on cloud computing. In the modern work environment, instead of being tied to their desktops, employees can access their work from anywhere, on the go.
In fact, the flexibility demanded by mobile workers is one of the major driving forces behind cloud computing. The anywhere-access is perfect for employees who are on the move at all times. Simply logging into a custom application through an internet enabled device allows them to perform all tasks over a cloud network.
An increasing number of companies are beginning to realize the benefits of cloud computing applications to manage key business data.
Adoption Of Hybrid Cloud Services
Hybrid cloud services allow organizations to benefit fully from the scalability of cloud technologies while ensuring complete regulatory compliance. Moreover, hybrid cloud technology allows organizations to bring their existing infrastructure into cloud without adopting a rip and replace approach. One of the key players in making hybrid cloud the popular option will be service providers.
The demand for hybrid cloud services is expected to grow rapidly in midsize enterprises, particularly manufacturers.
