Many will speculate and pontificate about the future, but there is one thing we can safely say for sure; the future of computing will be found in the cloud.
In spite of the security concerns, Cloud computing has been credited with increasing productivity, slashing IT costs, and increasing innovation.
A recent study by leading global IT company Unisys Corporation agreed that of the 300 respondents who they polled, 50% said that cloud computing is going to be their top IT investment priority in 2012. A similar poll conducted in 2010 for 2011 said that 44% of those surveyed said the same thing.
Cloud technologies offer IT the ability to deliver quickly and will low cost. This trend reflects the fact that half of these companies polled over two years ago said essentially the same thing tells you two things about the cloud.
One is that the cloud technologies are advancing so fast that companies have to keep staying on top of them just to keep their businesses productive and relevant. Two, this news tells you is that cloud computing is here to stay.
The US Federal Government even has embraced life in the cloud; they have a ‘cloud first’ policy which embraces both the private and public cloud computing models.
One thing which Unisys smartly advises their clients to do with the cloud is to integrate many of the new resources in with the cloud into a single upgrade of your systems. This way you’re not ostracized with only the most advanced cloud systems and none of the other ancillary systems (something Unisys calls 'cloud in a corner’).
For many of the world’s largest companies and the US Federal Government, they have looked into their future and it rests in the cloud.
Where do you see yourself and your businesses in regards to cloud computing?
