Top 5 Cloud Computing Trends for 2020

A few years ago, cloud technologies were dismissed as yet another new fad, capable of creating a buzz but of little value. Now the landscape has changed tremendously and majority of organisations are switching their operations to cloud. 

Given the crucial role that IT plays in today’s business atmosphere, cloud computing is also fundamentally changing the way that companies function.

Companies small and big in a wide array of industry are using enterprise cloud computing solutions, platforms, and even infrastructure to streamline process, gain better visibility and reduce costs. With the pace of change accelerating even more, what will the future of cloud computing bring?

1. Serverless Computing

Part of the transformation of cloud computing has seen the rise in the traction received by serverless computing. The earlier phase of cloud computing saw servers renting predetermined server space. Any over usage or under usage of server space was loss of valuable resources.

With serverless computing there is no waste of resources. It has a common structure that employs a “pay-as-you-go” structure. With amazon’s AWS model, this structure will only scale upwards.

2. The Future Of Cloud Computing Is Mobile

With the increasing popularity of mobile devices, workforce is demanding increased mobility which is the primary reason of cloud computing’s popularity. The employees can log on to their computer and organisational resources by simply logging on to the web enabled application developed by companies specializing in enterprise application services.

3. The Cloud Will Become More Global

Cloud has already turned global. But as cloud technologies evolve they will have an ever greater degree of communication and collaboration across organizations of all sizes. This will signify seamless integration of operations from providing local capabilities like multi-currency financial tools and multi-language interfaces, among many others.

4. Frictionless Companies

Cloud eases communication barriers vis-à-vis both internally and externally. When hurdles are removed, companies lose their friction points that slow them down.

Some examples for cloud based tools are automated supply chains and dashboards that display real-time data that enable companies increasingly ‘frictionless’.

5. Social Tools Enabled Cloud Collaboration

Currently, social media tools like chat and microblogging are necessary to improve collaboration. As people prefer these tools than the traditional ways of communication like emails. It is essential to integrate social tools to cloud.

The future is hard to predict, but cloud computing will have a considerable effect on business.
