Three years ago, it was unclear as to how cloud computing could be adopted by businesses all over the world. But as a new year unfolds, more and more industries see the good in getting onto the cloud. Many have seen the benefits of using the cloud to store data and likewise to be able to access applications that depend on it. In this digital era, it pays to know some of the cloud computing transformations that may be actualized in 2018. Here are some of the predictions:
The Use of Multi-Cloud Strategies and Industry-Specific Cloud Solutions
Many industries these days at least rely on one single cloud strategy. Experts have, however, foreseen a switch to a multi-cloud strategy instead. This will be more beneficial, as it has the capability to split workloads and add more innovation and functionality that businesses can make use of in carrying their daily transactions.
Alongside this, it is forecasted that part of the change in cloud computing trends is the introduction of industry-specific cloud solutions. This will soon become the norm since such a solution will be able to meet the capability requirements and unique needs of each industry. It will also be able to comply with specific regulations that are set within that industry.
Taking the Leap to a Private Cloud
It is also predicted that part of the change in cloud computing is the move to a private cloud because organizations want to gain more control over their computing resources. This will ultimately give them a chance to regulate the costs they spend on this particular service. It will give businesses the power to be able to get rid of the high monthly bills charged by other cloud services.
Cloud Services Offering Invisible Infrastructure Services
As the cloud becomes increasingly popular for many organizations, it also exposes risks on the part of companies making use of cloud computing. This is why it becomes very important to go for cloud services where there is a capability to hide the infrastructure of a business so that it becomes invisible to others. This will then mean seamless cloud integration and a more hybrid infrastructure for the company. Cloud service providers will soon recognize the need of organizations for a partner that will help them with digital transformations for their business.
Cloud Services to Protect Consumers
Organizations making use of the cloud these days are starting to see the myriad benefits that come with using a cloud service for their business. However, they may have failed to look into the wider scope of the picture. Industries are expected to serve their clients in such a way that their cloud services offer protection to these integral partners in the success of their business. With new regulations like that of the General Data Protection Regulation or GPDR, the performance of the cloud extends to the needs of clients. This will then mean that organizations must see to it that end consumers and their data are protected, or else they may have to take the risk of paying hefty fines to save their business.
Hybrid Cloud is All the Rage
The hybrid cloud will become one of the main focuses in cloud computing for 2018. This is especially so for industries that are willing to take their chances to implementing enterprise deployments. This fully dedicated virtual platform will provide the security of a dedicated environment.
