With a promising future ahead, cloud computing has become a new hue to bring in light new trends that will be the foundation stone of new business inventions. Cloud infrastructure—public, hosted private and on-premises— is increasingly less siloed, allowing workloads to be more portable and data streams more mobile. As a result, organizations, today, realize that the ubiquitous infrastructure, applications, and data require them to extend their hybrid and multi-cloud strategies.
Notably, many of these emerging cloud computing trends stem from the industry entering a phase of standardization and increased compatibility—a sign of maturity in any sector. That standardization, largely thanks to the open-source movement, is allowing a shift in focus up the stack, with new channel roles emerging to support application-level processes, from enabling AI and high-speed computing, to delivering novel SaaSOps and application development services.
With greater spending, however, comes greater responsibility for CIOs to invest budgets wisely, and a bigger impact if things go wrong. Governance of cloud computing is challenging, and it becomes tougher if the organization decides to move toward multi-cloud. Thus, developing multi-cloud governance and management processes will become critical to meet standard compliance, governance, and security requirements. Also, in 2020, the majority of IaaS, Paas, and SaaS providers will offer minimal standardization among their offerings. Additionally, a spike in cloud adoption and increased use of multi-cloud are creating the need for consistent cross-platform management.
