How the Cloud Cannonballed as this Summer’s IT Trend

Posted on August 21, 2017 by Morgan Woodruff

When it comes to IT trends, not many have made a greater splash than the rise of cloud computing. And let’s face it, with its momentum only expected to increase, the cloud isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.

Hybrid cloud spending is estimated to grow 22.5 percent annually through 2021 to reach almost $92 billion, according to recent research from MarketsandMarkets. And as more and more companies adopt and migrate to hybrid cloud strategies, the industry is getting closer to the next phase of the revolution in cloud computing – one where every organization is using the cloud in some capacity to achieve critical business goals.

Hybrid cloud offers numerous benefits in today’s business environment, allowing companies to do more with less, stretching the budget and using every dime as efficiently as possible.

What other factors are driving businesses to this cloud approach? Easy expansion and accessibility. Hybrid cloud allows organizations to add what it needs, when it needs it; or to pull back in leaner times when higher capacity isn’t necessary. It also allows a company to access critical data, apps and information anywhere, at any time.
