In today’s workplace it is hard to imagine a world without the Cloud. Hybrid working has become a major part of our lives, and without The Cloud this would not be possible.
Cloud technology is here for the long haul too with It being valued at $264.8B (£216.7B) in 2019 with projections of reaching $927.51B (£759.40B) by 2027. The main driver behind this growth is the cost savings Cloud solutions offer organisations in comparison to On-Prem solutions. Cloud Technology is continually evolving and has replaced traditional ways of managing applications. Products of the Cloud have certainly come a long way since their first inception in the 1950’s, so what are the next steps of the journey?
More organisations are set to move from On-Prem due to the better level of security The Cloud offers. Looking ahead On-Premise solutions will not be able to offer the same level of security and constant security updates that The Cloud provides.
With Cyber-attacks on the Cloud rising, threat intelligence is more important than ever. Threat intelligence is the process of gathering information on Cyber Criminals so you are better prepared for attacks. Being able to identify a hackers motives and operations will allow you organisation to better prepare and respond to attacks.
Due to the enhancements being made to boost Cyber Security in response to the rise in attacks, improvements to the Cloud are expected to scale the capabilities of the industry. Cloud providers are working hard on improving their products due to the rise in Cyber Attacks. This will see the Clouds offering benefiting large organisations who need their critical infrastructure protected in The Cloud.
Hybrid Cloud is where an organisations resources are spread across both Cloud and On-Prem. It’s useful when helping organisations be more selective and strategic. This is because they can monitor what they have currently migrated to the Cloud and asses how the process went before migrating more resources over. Not all workloads may be best served in the Cloud and Hybrid Cloud allows an organisation to assess which areas of their business are most profitable when stored here.
The number of companies using multiple Cloud environments is expected to grow. This is where an organisation spreads resource across multiple Cloud Services, providing a buffer for organisations if one of their Cloud providers is under a Cyber Attack. This does make things a little bit more complex but does offer continuity with downtime being a significant cost to organisations.
To summarise there are multiple predictions for the Cloud heading into 2023. A lot of the predictions are based around security becoming stronger; providing a better service to customers. With predictions of the Cloud continuing its mass growth paying attention to the latest market trends is essential for organisations.
