Cloud computing has made a big technological step in the last couple of years, according to an IDC survey, 68 percent of companies now have some part of their business on a public, private or hybrid cloud. This will enable companies to continue to use their technology assets while reaping the benefits of greater performance, functionality and less expensive cloud-based applications. This will also help bolster security; as more companies embrace cloud services, it will be fundamental that their data is accessed securely, leaving no room for outside intervention.
More specifically, public clouds are now at the forefront of security, with impenetrable privacy systems in place. Companies can also dynamically move their workloads among service providers; as a result, providers will need to better their service offerings.
As businesses expand into the cloud, the need to maintain physical servers becomes redundant, allowing businesses to cut costs without reducing their profitability. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning, when paired with the cloud environment, will enable faster processing of information, while also democratizing AI for more services. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) based solutions are the way to go, eliminating the need for maintenance and upgrading. Cloud service providers also develop long-term relationships with their customers, in many cases tailoring their offerings to offer superior products to customers.
