Why The Cloud Continues To Dominate

Posted on December 13, 2017 by Adam Burnham

2017 may be coming to an end, but one of its biggest trends is definitely not. Cloud computing has continued to dominate as a top business priority throughout the past year, and according to new research, cloud computing’s momentum isn’t going to slow down anytime soon.

International Data Corporation (IDC) estimates that worldwide “whole cloud” revenues will reach $554 billion in 2021, more than double those of 2016. Given this prediction, it’s no surprise that we continue to see the hybrid cloud model selected as the method of choice for IT departments looking to cloud-enable their businesses.

Hybrid cloud doesn’t require businesses to overspend on infrastructure equipment or create a data center from scratch. Rather, hybrid simplifies the cloud process and utilizes only the resources and costs needed to fit bandwidth, capacity and budget requirements. The model is perfect for today’s businesses, as it allows companies to do more with less, stretching the budget and using every dime as efficiently as possible.
