Hesitating about driving your business workloads to the cloud? Well, don't be! Our top 3 trends in cloud technologies will convince you that your business will not be as effective if don’t move to the cloud right now.
Today, companies are quickly adapting to the speedy and agile multi-cloud era. Gartner cloud strategy research states that by 2019 ‘cloud’ will be as common a term as ‘network’, as businesses will perceive the use of cloud services as an ordinary and natural process.
In addition, half of all global enterprises currently using the cloud will embrace an all-in cloud strategy by 2021. Cloud technology is not a buzzword anymore, and its trends change and progress rapidly.
We’ve reviewed the latest trends to keep your business up to date.
While 2021 is coming, we’re all stuck somewhere in the golden era – in the times of Hybrid IT. This is a half-cloud approach that allows businesses to manage resources both in-house and remotely. According to the IDG Connect, mixing and matching infrastructure models allows hybrid IT to balance the benefits of agility/cost effectiveness from a public cloud infrastructure with the security/governance/control of an in-house data center. Among the leading players in the cloud tech market are Amazon, Microsoft, IBM, and other tech giants.
Hybrid IT allows not only the integration of internal and external environments, but also the blending of software (SaaS) and platform services (PaaS). With a professional combination of these two cloud solutions, a business can create custom digital platforms with enhanced tools for productivity and collaboration.
SaaS and PaaS solutions leave in-house services behind. 55% of large enterprises will successfully implement an all-in cloud SaaS strategy by 2025. As for PaaS, more and more enterprise customers believe that PaaS will be the primary form of platform delivery in the coming years. Today, companies are already deciding to develop solutions for event messaging, data integration, and stream analytics with the help of cloud PaaS.
Combining these two cloud solutions is crucial if a standard technological and business approach (SaaS or PaaS only) doesn’t work for your project.
SaaS + PaaS can make your project fully flexible and customized to meet your unique business needs. Take a look at how K&C team collaborated with client X, who had a non-standard integrated infrastructure with multiple custom web platforms. To make these platforms operate as a whole, we went agile and offered to mix SaaS and PaaS. As a result, we got one platform to host a bunch of scattered services, carry out multiple operations and connect different software approaches.
The increasing maturity of cloud offerings makes IT players constantly improve their expertise. K&C team always follows the key cloud trends to initiate challenging and innovative projects. We like to mix multiple cloud services to go beyond and create the best custom solutions for our clients’ needs.
