The Future Usage of Cloud

The cloud has completely revolutionized the way we operate and do business. Cloud computing can basically be connected to everything today, and it has opened a whole new world of jobs, applications, services, and platforms. The cloud is here to stay, but what can we expect to see from it in the near future? We’ve investigated this topic further.

According to Gartner, the adoption of cloud services will just continue to grow in the coming years. This growth is partly due to the outbreak of the pandemic that has required companies to rely on the cloud in order to continue operating successfully. As a result, many companies have accelerated a digital transformation that under normal conditions would have taken years.

So, if the usage of cloud will just continue to grow, what can we expect to see from it in the near future? To answer this, we’ve listed three upcoming usages of the cloud:

1. Easy Access to Emerging Technologies 

Cloud computing can be seen as the backbone of the tech ecosystem we live in and operate in today. Thanks to the cloud, new and emerging technologies can be adopted easily by companies of all types and sizes. An example of this is IoT where the cloud is an ideal infrastructure as it provides availability, scalability, efficiency, and unlimited storage for the information it collects. Another example is AI where the cloud enables users to access machine learning functions without any special expertise or major cost.

2. Intelligent Cyber Security 

In the coming years, cyber security is expected to be considered more and more as a strategic priority that is embedded in an early stage of business processes. Thus, there will be a high focus on detection and prevention of potential threats in a proactive way. Here, automation like automatic monitoring and predictive analysis will play a crucial role, and technologies like machine learning and AI will be used to achieve this. As a result, cloud security is expected to be more intelligent and easier to manage.

3. New Ways of Working

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and the resulting growth in cloud usage, the work (and the definition of “workplace” itself) has changed completely. Even though this new way of working may change slightly when the pandemic is

over, it will surely leave its mark and affect the way we work in the future. In the coming years, successful companies will continue to capitalize on the advantages of flexibility, accessibility, and scalability, that the cloud brings. Therefore, we can expect to see an evolvement of more hybrid work environments with highly digital processes.

It’s clear that the cloud has been useful, even vital, for companies both in the past and present. This has especially been proven during the pandemic when the business conditions changed dramatically and we had to accelerate digital transformation quickly with the help of the cloud. Looking forward, there’s no doubt that the cloud will continue to help businesses to accelerate digital transformation and growth. The opportunities that the cloud brings seem to be limitless, and we’re very excited to be a part of it with the YouSolution Cloud Platform.
