We’re nearing the end of 2019, and it looks like virtually all future solutions will be built on the strengths of the cloud platform to deliver business capabilities to the end user.
So basically, you can’t afford NOT to move to the cloud. In case you need a refresher, here are “The Top 7 Reasons to Jump to the Cloud.”
Cloud computing is effectively replacing the traditional business of “buying products” with a move towards “buying services.” No longer should you need to purchase software, hardware, and media separately. Cloud computing is key for business development for operators AND end users to extend network and customer value.
I know what you’re thinking… If it’s so great, why are some people still holding out? What are the objections? Well, in our experience there are mainly two:
According to research in their 14th annual Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report, NETSCOUT found that 61% of all companies listed security concerns as a major reason not to move to the cloud. If you’re like those companies and worried about the cloud because your business systems contain highly-sensitive client data or corporate secrets, don’t let that stop you. In most cases, cutting-edge cloud encryption offers more security than you experience with an in-house system. You simply need to make sure your cloud system is equipped with the necessary encryption technology to keep your data secure.
Change can be scary, but in the end it’s often worth it. Cloud is the way of the future, and you don’t want to be left behind. If you’re still uneasy about making the move, you can check out our article, “5 Tips for a Smooth Move to the Cloud.”
According to The Gartner Group, software as a service (SaaS) will remain the largest market segment in 2020 and is forecasted to grow to $116 billion next year due to the scalability of subscription-based software. The second largest market segment is cloud system infrastructure, or infrastructure as a service (IaaS) which will reach over $50 Billion in 2020. IaaS is forecasted to grow over 24% year over year, which is the highest growth rate across all segments according to The Gartner Group. This growth rate is largely due to the modern demands of workloads and applications which require infrastructure that traditional data centers cannot meet.
So it looks like building and implementing cloud strategies will be top priorities for years to come. Are you ready?
