The Future of Cloud Computing: Emerging Trends

Leveraging the cloud in new and exciting ways is part of this technology’s appeal, and can be just what a company needs to maintain its competitive edge.

Since first being introduced to the enterprise sector, the cloud’s role in the business world has only grown. Research has shown that cloud usage has steadily risen over the past five years – last year over 78 percent of businesses were using a web-based system for computing. In recent years, businesses adopting these off-premises systems have enjoyed a range of benefits, including unburdening their internal IT teams, saving costs and spurring collaboration and productivity throughout the company.

“This technology allows all major business needs to be met in the cloud. Why go to the effort of building it yourself when you could just rent it, and throw it away if it doesn’t work?”

In other words, the cloud is so cost-effective and flexible that, these days, it makes more sense to adopt it than to create an on-premises environment. Thanks to its flexibility, cloud solutions can be scaled, adjusted or otherwise configured to fit any need. If the solution doesn’t work as it is originally deployed, this doesn’t mean it’s time to give up. Clients can work with their cloud service providers to customize their platform so that it suits their unique business needs.

When it comes to specific use cases, many experts have found that the cloud is often leveraged to reduce complexity within the company’s infrastructure. The cloud has become a default strategy within the enterprise sector.
