Cloud Computing is Expanding and Changing Featured

Cloud Computing is Expanding and Changing "Chalk writing on the street near the George Floyd memorial in Minneapolis.\n\"Together we will change the world.\""

Being an IT manager means that you must stay on top of the game at all times. It means that you know what is going on and anticipate the needs of your end users, in addition to solving issues before they arise. With this, users can perform better, and the business can flourish. One of the things you must be aware of as an IT manager is cloud computing. In recent years, there have been growing talks on cloud computing and what it can do. With businesses going digital, perhaps now is the right time to better understand this technology. The entry of the cloud has immensely increased the growth of businesses and their efficiency. As we move into a new era technologically, there are questions regarding how the cloud will change the business landscape. Here are some cloud computing trends for the new decade:

  1. Companies will deploy more workloads to the cloud

According to Gartner, businesses will deploy 95% of their new digital workloads on cloud-native platforms by the middle of the decade. By doing this, they will embrace technology more and more, move their organizations forward, and commit to modernizing them for the long term. However, this means that they have to know the information needed so that they can reap benefits. Organizations must constantly update their workloads to match the changes as the cloud continues to evolve fast. 

  1. Multicloud and Hybrid

There is a growing number of solutions that offer agility, customizability and non-compromizability in the market starting in 2022. With the past cloud services, you could only choose between private and public solutions. Cloud solutions offered accessibility and pay-as-you-go services, while the private cloud, on the other hand, offered more security for data storage. With the availability of hybrid solutions such as Microsoft Azure, you can keep certain types of data on public servers. The data you can keep on public servers include the ones customers need to access often. You can also store sensitive data on private servers to control and monitor it as you deem fit. 

  1. Artificial intelligence

As Artificial intelligence continues gaining fame, consumers expect new software platforms to incorporate it. Therefore, 2022 going forward, will see an increase in the number of technologies to meet customer demand. Cloud computing must adapt to deliver the said services to the consumers. According to Verified Market Research, the market value for AI will be over 850 billion by 2028. AI platforms will require more processing power and bandwidth to support this. This is where cloud computing will come in to help AI projects succeed. 

  1. Serverless cloud technology

Every IT manager dreams about streamlining workload and ensuring efficiency. Serverless cloud technology may be the thing you need to achieve this. With this technology, you can automate some tasks you consider tedious. This helps you maintain your server infrastructure in the best possible way. Between 2022 and 2026, there will be a high demand for serverless technologies, according to research by Motor Intelligence. The research indicates that serverless computing will rise by 22.6% between 2022 and 2026. With this, users do not need to invest in resources and capital. 

  1. Cloud Security

Implementing the cloud in an organization is one of the most powerful steps you can ever take. However, all is not well until you consider the security of your data and systems. You must first consider ways of mitigating risk and implementing data security procedures to prevent bad actors from causing havoc. As cloud computing takes over the information landscape, developers will increasingly work on projects that improve cloud security. There will be a possible increase in the adoption of Secure Access Software Edge (SASE). Gartner reports that at least 40% of companies will create commitments to include SASE in their toolkit.
