How Will Cloud Computing Be By 2020?

The future has a great promise when it comes to the cloud. No doubt, cloud computing has taken off in the recent years with business applications and new innovations. But knowing where will be the cloud computing by the end of the decade can be little difficult for those who don’t know what cloud computing is.

So, what is cloud computing and how will it help my business? Cloud computing is a kind of computer hard drive with a difference of storing and accessing data over the internet. When the data is stored on the hard drive, it is called local storage and computing.

How will cloud computing evolve? And how will it affect the future? Are the questions organizations aims to find out. Here are some predictions for the companies that look cloud computing as a cost-effective in a long-term.

Application Availability On The Cloud Will Be More

It’s estimated that by the end of 2020, more than a quarter of all applications will be available on the cloud. More than 58 percent of companies spend about 10 percent of their annual budgets on the cloud, while about 56 percent of companies think cloud to be a strategic differentiator. As researchers predicted, there will be about 8.2 billion active mobile devices by 2020 with more and more applications to follow. Applications will be made available on the cloud to build and deploy applications that would lead to better technology and faster response time.

Migration To Private Clouds With More Education

Companies are starting to know the differences between public, private, and hybrid cloud computing. Companies opting to stay with the shared clouds will have the risk of  slower performance and more security threats, which would result in migration to private clouds in the future.

More Hybrid Cloud Computing

Some industry leaders predict that about 50 percent of companies will have hybrid clouds by 2017. Hybrid cloud computing would provide a combination of strengths like on-premise solutions and management convenience.

Increased Cloud Development

An 85 percent of the new applications are being built with the cloud in mind, which expects to see more and more resources going towards cloud development. Companies can expect an increase in the third party, commercial and enterprise developers and API exchanges.

End Of Traditional Infrastructure

Due to the evolving features of the cloud, software can be expected to almost completely stay away from hardware, since many companies are starting to search many applications available online by eliminating the need to keep buying new servers. Companies can expect software applications to get more complex and larger for scalability. The emphasis will be mostly on modular software since applications tend to get larger. The modular software will require a novel approach to the technology by saying goodbye to the traditional infrastructure.
