IT Trends: What To Expect from Cloud Computing in 2019

What To Expect from Cloud Computing in 2019

Cloud computing solutions have changed how we do business. The market is currently worth billions, and growing at a rate of 13.38%. Experts expect 2019 to be even bigger for cloud computing. Here’s what to expect:

What is Cloud Computing Solutions

cloud computing solutionsCloud computing solutions is a term that refers to applications, services or resources provided to users on demand with a secure access control via the Internet from a cloud computing provider’s servers.

Multi-Cloud or Hybrid Cloud Will Rule the Way

With so many available options, there’s no need for companies to stick to one provider. They can choose a number of cloud platforms to get the best available service. According to a recent survey from RightScale, on average, a single business currently leverages the use of 6 cloud computing services providers. 

Businesses will have expanded choices in the coming year as subscription-based software-as-a-service is expected to grow at a rate of 18% in 2019. With investments in platform-as-a-service expected to grow at a rate of 56% (cloud computing’s fastest-growing sector), many may go serverless. 

More Employees Will Work From Home 

Employees want the flexibility that cloud computing solutions offer. With solutions like Parallels RAS, employers can remotely deliver applications and desktops to their employees. 

About 3.9 million Americans presently work from home, and about half of the population is expected to work remotely by 2020. Cloud computing plays a vital role in making this possible. It’s believed that by 2020, about 67% of enterprise infrastructure and software will be on the cloud. 

Technology is changing at a rapid pace—businesses have to evolve. The emergence of simple and safe cloud computing solutions make it easier for businesses to operate and stay ahead of their competition.
