PCMAN – Cloud computing has been rising in popularity in the last few years, and it is predicted to gain even more attention in the next few years. Some of the cloud computing predictions in 2016 are:
Decrease in Outsourced Application Development
Outsourced application development will decline in demand. With the easy access to compute resources through Cloud, businesses will use software to differentiate their brands.
This activity is predicted to be on demand that the application development will be required to be brought back in-house. Businesses will create new and exciting ways to interact with customers as a result in the business relying on a continuous flow of company-built software features.
The Rise of Hybrid IT
It is predicted that increasing digital and disruptive business environment will reinforce hybrid IT environments to bloom in 2016. An established firm has to combine two different ways of doing business — first is to optimize their traditional business and the second is to establish start-up-style initiatives in order to survive within the competitiveness.
As a result, this trend will drive numbers of combination of reliable and efficient systems, with extremely agile and flexible cloud platforms. This infrastructure model will need to implement hybrid IT to bridge the two worlds.
Solution as a Service (SaaS) has been rising for the last couple of years, and it is predicted to continue to increase in 2016. Public Clouds is predicted to be the key driver of SaaS, as it will enable departments to be much more agile and adopt new solutions more easily and deploy on demand.
Companies that have been struggling to overcome the skills gap have finally come to a conclusion that SaaS is a legitimate solution to the problem. Thus public Clouds will only help them to overcome the problem even more.
Increase in Cloud Attacks
Unfortunately, we have to face upsetting news that cloud attacks are predicted to grow even more serious and widespread in 2016. From large-enterprises to start-ups, Cloud attacks could be experienced by anyone.
Businesses will need a stricter, more effective cloud controls and security for a better critical cloud data protection. It should also lead to a focus on highly secure cloud networking solutions.
Standardization and Automation
In order to improve productivity, it is predicted that more customers will demand for more automation to enforce the execution for the use, storage, and transmission of personal or confidential data.
Cloud providers need to be ready to ensure a compliant and accountable regulatory environment. Standardization and automation will become the key of transforming business legacy IT environments to cloud-like models.
