What are the Top 3 Trends in Cloud Computing?

By CIOReview | Friday, December 27, 2019

Cloud computing changes the way enterprises think about data, businesses think about the operations, and engineers think about building.

FREMONT, CA: Cloud computing is considered as the powerful remote server that allows enterprises to access files, house databases, and share software. It is a computer platform that can be accessed from a local machine using the internet. Its benefits include access to powerful machines that do not have to install costly hardware by going out of the budgets.

Cloud is scalable, robust, and cost-efficient. It is beneficial for app development, and the use of the cloud for custom application development has proved to be superior. Below given are the top 3 trends in the cloud that will transform enterprises in 2020.

Cloud to the Edge, and Back:

Cloud technology

 

Edges are getting more intelligent, as the users look for real-time access to data in the internet of things age. Edge computing is widely distributed, with data processing happening at the edge where the data is made or consumed. Edges are the opposite of cloud that deals with centralized processing. In the coming years, as edge computing moves to the mainstream, the enterprises will see it complementing cloud technologies for secure back and forth of data.

AI, ML, and Cloud:

Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) will continue to be the focus of every firm. While AI and ML drive a lot of investment, most projects remain fragmented and distributed. In the coming year, the organizations will focus mainly on centralizing the initiatives into a more robust platform, thus making cloud position as a primary standard. 

Cloud Security Back in the Spotlight:

Checking the security of data in the public cloud might be a significant focus in 2020. To a greater extent, cloud security discussions have been limited when it comes to the control of access and creation of policies, so far. As the enterprises move more critical workloads to public cloud environments, aspects like cloud workload security, data encryption, and threat intelligence are most likely to take center stage. Nevertheless, shared responsibility models and privileged access management will further raise the bar for cloud security.
