Cloud computing is predicted to grow faster than Moore’s law. That means in the next 18 months, cloud capacity is expected to more than double. But what does that does that mean for your business in 2013? What does it mean for your business in 2020?
Take a look at the future of your business.
But there are even more ways cloud computing will affect business in the years leading up to 2020. Consider the following:
- Open source clouds will speed up cloud projects and continue to drive cloud adoption.
- From now until 2016, public cloud offerings will account for 59 percent of all new cloud spending in North America, according to a recent Gartner report.
- The public cloud market overall will grow 18 percent, to $131 billion, in 2017, Gartner estimates. This compares with $111 billion last year.
And beyond 2020? Analysts already are offering projections:
- The evolution from PC to cloud will propel “invisible, sensor-enabled devices driven by applications and services,” according to Gartner. This shift means that users will work a variety of connected devices, and on applications and services that are independent of a platform or operating system.
- The PC of 2023 will be your smartphone and the cloud.
