The Changing Scene of Cloud Computing
In 2017, the profits for public cloud services grew by 18.5 percent, giving the industry a total revenue of more than 260 billion dollars. With this continued growth, the market’s begun to change and adapt its services to meet the evolving needs of its consumers.
How the Cloud Computing Market Is Changing
Amazon’s recent announcement that its Amazon Web Services would charge by the second, versus the hour, may have been one of the first signs that cloud computing was making a major change. The idea behind the billing model was that most developers only need access for a brief, rather than an extended, period.
Many other companies have also made changes to their business model; Cisco being one of these companies. The company has shifted its resources toward creating customized networking products for leaders in cloud computing, such as Amazon and Microsoft, instead of committing itself to manufacturing standard switches and routers.
What we’re seeing in the cloud computing market is similar to the movement that Adobe Systems, Inc. initiated with its subscription-based business model for its software. Cloud providers are adapting their business models to a marketplace that’s now cloud-based.
What to Expect From the New Cloud Computing in 2018
With the anticipated growth of the cloud computing industry, from Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), a concern for IT teams is the security of their positions. It’s expected, however, that cloud computing will benefit IT departments.
In fact, companies tend to increase their number of IT employees when moving to the cloud — even after the transition period. Most of this additional staff tend to focus on user adoption and awareness, as well as play a role in ensuring a company is up-to-date with the latest technology, which can help a business do more.
What else can you expect from the changes in cloud computing? Dedicating resources to security audits. Around 37 percent of organizations that adopt the cloud often reinvest the money they’ve saved into security audits, which ensure a secure connection to your cloud services.
