Three cloud computing trends to look for in 2020

A quick look at 3 key  cloud computing trends for 2020

Ever since digital transformation took off, cloud computing has become one of the most promising technologies for this generation. From the past two decades, it has been continually evolving and is speculated to be one of the most sought after technologies in the future.

In a short span of time, cloud computing has become a huge trend in different sectors like cyber-security, retail, IT, etc. Its outstanding features like scalability, robustness and cost-efficiency help organizations attain maximum productivity.

While 2019 saw a major number of organizations adopting cloud technology to smoothen their operations, 2020 is expected to witness a series of key developments that will further revolutionize the cloud technology. 

Hybrid or Omni Cloud

One of the most preferable cloud models for 2020 is the hybrid cloud. According to International Data Incorporation (IDC), more than 90 per cent of global enterprises want to migrate to multi or hybrid considering its larger scope for the future. This cloud model is preferred by enterprises of all scales across industries as it ensures an easy and affordable solution to process higher-volume data.

While the adoption of cloud has increased, the security in the hybrid cloud remains a challenge in the market. But 2020 will seem to have a better solution for a seamless hybrid experience for organizations and users.

Server-less Computing

Serverless computing gained huge popularity in 2019 with its benefits like cost-efficiency and greater agility. This computing allows user to pay-as-you-go with the relatively lower pricing model and is being widely used by small and medium enterprises.

A recent report from Gartner said that more than 20 per cent of global enterprises will like to adopt serverless computing for 2020.

One of the major challenges that had impacted the adoption of serverless this year was the lack of tools and frameworks. Currently, the cloud providers just have tools and frameworks for development, testing, debugging, and deployment of serverless computing, which is expected to be enhanced further for its overall upgrade in 2020. Some of the key differentiators of serverless like its ability to start to zero, and not charge the customer for idle time, will see a change in techniques to minimize risks.

Artificial Intelligence Revolutionizing Cloud

Artificial intelligence (AI) gives companies the ability to automate and manage their processes without scaling and aligning with the changing needs of the business. The difference with AI comes from the strategic application of core competencies within AI, such as machine learning, system recognition, and intelligent robotics. These capabilities help unlock new value from structured and unstructured, internal and external data.

2020 will see key developments with automation and Natural Language Processing (NLP), according to the recent research by IBM. While automation will make cloud faster and quicker in its processing, NLP will play a key role in enabling AI systems to converse, debate and solve problems using everyday language. The customer experience will be improved as the providers will use AI-based interface to interact with consumers.

In conclusion, cloud computing will see a series of key developments in future years that will revolutionize the way it works.
