The year 2022 is just around the corner, and it appears it will be yet another eventful year for the global technology sector. In the upcoming year, most businesses would like to go full throttle and try to make up the lost ground during a prolonged two year disruption.
In this post, we will cover some of the emerging and notable cloud computing trends for the upcoming year. This post is inclined more towards how we think the global tech and cloud computing markets would shape up over the next year.
Migration to the Cloud will Stay
In addition to legacy business processes making their way to the Cloud, we also expect enterprises to deploy their new workloads directly to the cloud. Enterprises are really noticing the value, flexibility and ease of workload deployment in a cloud first approach.
Most of these workloads being deployed are pre-structured for their respective cloud environments, which in turn reduces the bottlenecks associated with migrating and integrating legacy applications as well as workloads towards the Cloud.
Multi Cloud will be Rewarding, but Challenging as Well
According to a recent assessment conducted by Gartner, over 90% enterprises will be pursuing a multi cloud strategy by the year 2025. While the whole idea of a multi cloud is no doubt really appealing, there is still more to the multi cloud than we think.
In theory, a multi cloud strategy puts deploying enterprises in the driver’s seat. For all intents and purposes, they are enjoying the “best of every world”, while also addressing the dreaded vendor lock-in, all at the same time.
However, there is a steep learning curve to deploying, managing and optimizing multi cloud environments. While any enterprise would be more than happy to deploy a multi cloud strategy, only a handful might be able to fully reap its benefits.
This is owed to the currently prevalent skillset gap in the Cloud Computing market. Enterprises are migrating to the Cloud at such a rapid pace that the number of cloud experts will have to do some serious catching up, and really soon.
So, we expect that while enterprises will be pursuing multi cloud strategies very aggressively in 2022, they will have to contend with serious capacity issues when it comes to the minute details of a multi cloud computing model.
Corporate and Social Responsibility to take the Limelight
Events such as a global pandemic renew the ages old debate of using the planet’s resources more responsibly. Interestingly, Cloud Computing solutions are naturally skewed towards improving the environment, mainly due to a reduced carbon footprint.
A single Cloud Service Provider (CSP) like dinCloud might be fulfilling the infrastructure needs of hundreds of enterprises, all at the same time. In most cases, this eliminates the need for establishing stand-alone data centers or servers within the enterprise.
Coincidently, this facet of cloud solutions being better for the environment as compared to individual on-premise data centers, is also favoring cloud adoption. In the year 2022, we expect issues about the environment and carbon footprint take further limelight.
Indirectly, this factor is quite likely to work in favor of cloud adoption over the next year. Lastly, leading cloud providers like dinCloud have well established and structured internal controls, which in turn improve the corporate governance posture of deploying entities.
By moving over to the Cloud, enterprises would be enjoying this unique advantage of a much better compliance posture in terms of the overall environment, social responsibility and corporate governance structures.
Based on the above factors, we expect the adoption of cloud services and solutions to maintain a strong growth momentum in 2022. However, to reap the true benefits of the multi cloud, deploying enterprises will have to close the skillset gap at the earliest.
