While going through news headlines on cloud-computing, 2 items caught our attention. Tech pundits have made 2 predictions, that, by 2022, 1 million new jobs will be created in the Indian IT sector and, by 2021, the cloud-computing market will grow to its double, globally.
Growth in any industry is possible if and only if it welcomes innovations with an open mind. So let’s have a look at the cloud-computing trends in 2019 and beyond which are believed to leave an overwhelming impression on the IT industry. Click here to find out the current trends of the industry.
1: Machine learning and AI
By AI or artificial intelligence, we don’t mean standalone robots. Renowned cloud vendors like Amazon, Google and Microsoft have already begun their cognitive services like facial recognition. As examples, we can consider Amazon Rekognition, Google Vision API and Microsoft Cognitive Services Face API.
2: Quantum computing
Quantum computing is The Holy Grail of the tech industry. Experts believe that it can enable us to perform some hitherto unattainable tasks like to encrypt data seamlessly, solve complicated medical issues, create better financial models, predict the weather more accurately and to conduct more meaningful conversations with AI.
IBM and Alibaba are offering quantum computing cloud services. The quantum computing market is expected to be worth of $1.9 billion by the year 2023 which might then grow to $8.0 billion by 2027.
3: Internet of Everything (IoE)
The scope of the Internet of Things (IoT) is no longer limited to machine-to-machine interactions. IoT platform has also included people and processes and is now called by the popular term, the Internet of Everything (IoE).
The amount of data stored by IoE-based devices is huge. It is assumed that we’re approaching towards a future where after every 12 hours, total knowledge balance of the globe will be double.
Thus, not only do we need super-intelligent AI solutions, but also a huge storage capacity and more robust data security features. No wonder we’ll be seeing cloud computing in a bigger role.
4: Hybrid cloud solutions
Cloud migration has posed more challenges than what was earlier anticipated. The transition process is quite expensive and it is not scalable. Whereas, hybrid cloud solutions allow companies to migrate at their own pace and for a lower expense.
CIOs should evaluate the merits and demerits of multivendor hybrid cloud solutions before opting for the right one. In the coming years, more companies will access the features of hybrid cloud solutions.
Many companies are opting for cloud computing services without giving much thought to the implications of new security codes like the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR. Companies which deal with clients residing in EU should comply their data practices with GDPR requirements.
According to a survey report published by Gartner, “Through 2020, 99% of vulnerabilities exploited will continue to be ones known by security and IT professionals for at least one year.”
Digital transformation will motivate more companies to opt for cloud services thereby increasing cybersecurity threats. Hence, all eyes will be fixed upon the advancement of cloud security.
