The Future (and Present) Impact of the Cloud

Cloud adoption is now an inevitable reality for enterprises worldwide. The rate of adoption is powered by a burgeoning cloud managed services market that is estimated to grow from $27.15 billion in 2017 to $53.78 billion by 2022. Such a rosy economic forecast leads to a serious question: How else has the cloud became essential to enterprise businesses? 

Ahmed Adly, Senior Director at Oracle, gave his insights as to how the cloud will impact businesses in 2017 and beyond. Here are three of his assertions:

1/ Digital transformations will become the norm – As we’ve mentioned time and time again, enterprises both small and large are deploying digital strategies, almost all of them built on the cloud.

2/ Cloud-based safety – For the past thirty years, corporate data was generally stored in local data centers and handled by an in-house IT team. Now, the major cloud providers come with the expertise and resources to provide unmatched security, leaving the old data center model in the dust.

3/ AI will become standard – It’s easy to forget the pervasive presence and computing power behind artificial intelligence. Now and in the future, AI systems will require the cloud to import, analyze, and interpret vast amounts of data that powers the decisions of today’s consumers.
