Cloud computing has changed our concept of doing business and is gaining momentum these days. We will tell you about the trends that will help you make your cloud migration strategy successful.
Multiclouds and hybrid clouds continue to grow
Flexera’s survey results show that 92% of companies are using a multicloud strategy, while 82% are using hybrid technologies. This means that organizations are not opting for one particular platform but looking for several suitable solutions. The survey has also found that enterprises use, on average, 2.6 public and 2.7 private clouds.
IDC has confirmed this trend by stating that more companies will rely on a hybrid cloud solution model that includes on-premises dedicated private clouds and public clouds.
Staying consistent in an increasingly complex environment
Organizations should take a vendor-agnostic approach and look for SaaS solutions that mitigate vulnerabilities. Otherwise, either hackers will use these vulnerabilities for their own ends or there will be problems with internal management and regulatory compliance. As practice shows, data security is the main obstacle to the implementation of a corporate cloud, and connecting additional infrastructure complicates this issue.
Cloud cost improvement is companies’ priority
According to the 2021 State of the Cloud Report, corporate cloud costs are growing. As a result, cloud optimization is becoming a priority. Companies strive to control their budgets and reduce duplicate or unnecessary spending.
Since cloud platforms have different pricing models and costs vary every month, controlling can be a hard-going task.
Third-party cloud development services will help organizations gain insight into the network and ensure centralized cost management.
In order to solve new challenges, corresponding expertise is required. A cloud provider is only responsible for the infrastructure needs, so it becomes necessary to involve external partners that will take care of the computing, networking, and specific needs (data, visibility, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, or Internet of Things).
These third-party professionals should have a good understanding of how cloud computing and related technologies work and how to get the best solutions for specific organizational needs.
AI will increase the speed of cloud computing
Statista predicts that, by 2025, the global value of the AI market will exceed $89 billion a year. A large proportion of this sum will be accounted for AI-powered cloud computing support. Machine Learning plays a major role in the logistics processes that power cloud data centers.
AI will make it possible to optimize workloads and automate repetitive tasks. Private and public clouds will rely on AI to monitor, manage, and even self-heal when a problem occurs. The system itself will be able to control routine processes, allowing engineers to focus on more important strategic actions.
Increased need for data security
According to LogicMonitor, IDC, 33.3% of organizations refuse to implement cloud technology due to its insufficient level of data security. There are many questions about how the integration of new technologies (5G, serverless computing, edge computing, etc.) will affect the reliability of the cloud. Therefore, cloud providers are expected to find solutions that will guarantee the security of network data.
The cloud has allowed enterprises to build infrastructure with resources they would never have achieved. A company that is not an expert in the field may find it difficult to take all the nuances and industry-forming trends into account and implement the best solution.
