The Evolution of Cloud-based Technologies

In today’s digital era, technology trends, such as big data, cloud computing, mobility and social media are giving businesses new marketing and operational capabilities. Technology is too critical for competitive performance to be left just to the IT function of a company. As a result, many enterprises are now calling upon their senior-executive teams to get involved in technology issues. Boards have also started taking a strategic view of how technology trends are shaping the future of their companies. The question now is not if companies will undergo a cloud transformation – but what services they should shift into the cloud, how quickly this can be done and what will be the costs incurred.

Cloud Strategies over the Years

Cloud computing has come a long way since its beginning and is shaking up both the enterprise IT and supplier landscape. In the late 90s, we had Web 2.0 as a result of the availability of much-improved bandwidths for the masses. With the arrival of Sales Force Dot Com (SDFC) in 1999, the foundation for other software houses to begin delivering applications over the Internet was also laid. Google, among many others, offered browser-based enterprise applications including Google Apps (G Suite) and Microsoft came up with Office 365. Many companies encouraged their customers to upgrade to the cloud-based versions of their products over the next few years with great success.

According to Gartner in 2017, many enterprises now spend millions of their IT budgets on cloud services every year.

In the last decade, cloud computing has evolved to become the technological lifeblood that runs through most modern enterprises. The next decade of cloud computing will be just as eventful. Security in the cloud is perhaps now seen as a strength rather than a challenge as perceived in earlier years
