We believe cloud adoption is going to enter into its second phase. Just as any program evolves, it eventually moves out of its infant stage where public cloud adoption currently exists. However, as the second phase hits it will bring great benefits to companies who invest in cloud adoption.
So What Will Be The Benefits?
This new phase will address two major concerns that should drive public cloud adoption in the right direction.
The first is security. Any company that uses public cloud services knows critical data is being stored in a public area. This terrifies just about anyone. We foresee vastly improved security for public cloud services. Public cloud is just beginning to offer a solution for extra-large data instances. We also expect improved solutions with a great emphasis on high-risk data such as financial or accounting data.
The second major improvement we will see is in the analytics, which is a main driving factor for public cloud service customers. Businesses want to know how to better engage with their customers and how and where to protect their data. The expansion of analytics with public cloud services will address this need. Look for real-time insights and customer-focused insights to be introduced to public cloud services in 2016.
It’s easy to see why public cloud adoption is on the rise and why it should continue to be widely adopted amongst businesses moving forward. Even the most skeptical IT pros are beginning the see the benefit of cloud services.
