Those of you who are in charge of IT for your company are well aware of the huge investments being made in cloud-based networks and applications. You may be making some of your own! By the end of this year, assuming the IDC predictions are correct, about 50% of a company's IT annual spend will be cloud-based, increasing to 60% by 2020.
Clearly, cloud computing will play a role in most 2019 IT strategic plans and budgeting. And with good reason. The cloud is here to stay. Most of the innovations we see on the information technology horizon are connected in some way to the cloud and/or cloud security. Here are three important trends that we are seeing as experts analyze the playing field for 2019:
There are other trends, of course, that will continue to get attention as we head towards a new year. The quantum computing market is expected to grow even more rapidly than originally anticipated and will get crowded as new players emerge. AI and IoT trends will continue to dominate headlines as CTOs grapple with the arduous tasks of organizing and channeling a deeper and broader spectrum of data in ways that can make them more effective and more competitive.
These are, by all accounts, exciting times. And, yet they present unique challenges, especially when it comes to managing the many forms of data and controlling costs. Staying ahead of the curve has never been more important than in today's changing technology landscape.
