Top 6 Cloud Computing Trends for 2020
on Dec 12
Cloud computing is becoming a part of everyday life for businesses. Whether your business has or hasn’t embraced technology yet, it’s important to keep up with the times and stay up to date with the latest trends for cloud computing for 2020. Let's take a look at six key trends that will shape the future of cloud solutions for your business.
1. Hybrid Clouds
In the past, businesses have relied on a single private or public Cloud for their data needs. As the demand for data grows, more businesses are turning towards hybrid clouds in order to run efficiently and effectively as they grow their operations. A combination of public and private Cloud servers, Hybrid Clouds are integrated between each other but operate independently, offering more control over sensitive data and reliable disaster recovery. Services will become increasingly specialized in 2020, meaning that businesses will turn more towards hybrid cloud solutions for their needs.
2. Cloud Security
Cybersecurity is now an essential part of the internet user experience. All you need to do is take a look at the latest headlines with data breaches, phishing scams, malware attacks. There’s an ever growing need for Cloud providers to offer state-of-the-art security measures to keep their customers and data secure. This doesn’t only include prevention but also early threat detection for any type of situation.
3. Serverless Computing
Cloud computing has recently seen a rise in the popularity of “serverless clouds”. It’s quite a misleading term because applications still run on servers. The term refers to the fact that businesses don’t need to manage servers to run their code anymore. Users don’t have to pay for a fixed amount of bandwidth or number of servers, and only charged when they’re running code. While it won’t become popular overnight, serverless computing will slowly continue to change the game for traditional Cloud infrastructures in the new year.
4. Artificial Intelligence
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing business operations including call centers and customer support. It’s highly intelligent software and provides extremely valuable analytics for key business decisions. AI is usually cloud-based software and the most popular form of implementation for businesses. As AI software becomes smarter and faster, cloud providers will adapt and encourage more implementation in their software to offer a better customer experience.
5. Internet of Things
As explained in a previous blog post, faster connections and real time analytics has led to the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT). This is the idea that all things in the world can be connected to the internet including appliances, security systems, speakers, healthcare equipment, and much more. Since IoT relies on machine-to-machine communication for transferring data, Cloud software will play a larger role in 2020 as more devices are developed and updated to connect to the internet.
6. Mobile Cloud Computing
Mobility is becoming the status quo for business operations. No matter the location, employees want the ability to work remotely and use software and devices that support this new trend. Businesses will demand more software that supports this mobility, and Cloud providers are expected to provide the same access and security to their platforms regardless of the device
Cloud computing will continue to evolve in 2020 with new features, tools, and technologies that enhance the user experience and improve business operations. With these new and exciting trends, it looks like the best is yet to come for the Cloud. For more information on cloud computing, please call 808-237-5000 or request a FREE consultation below.
