IDC and Forrester Research are both predicting that in 2016 Cloud will continue to dominate the IT landscape with Digital Transformation being the key driver (reference IDC FutureScape 2016 or Forrester’s Predictions 2016: The Cloud Accelerates). Both of the predictions are pretty close when it comes to the details. Here are some of the key predictions (reference

  • CIOs will reject CapEx spend on IT infrastructure.
  • Public cloud will no longer be the point of contention. The discussion will shift from If to When.
  • “Data center” and “Private cloud” will be considered as bad words in most organizations.
  • So far companies have moved CRM, ITSM and Productivity Suites on Cloud, but prediction is that organizations will start migrating enterprise applications and running entire Business Process on Cloud

As businesses start building Enterprise Applications on Cloud, they will look beyond SaaS to Infrastructure on Cloud i.e. IaaS  and also PaaS will get a big boost as per cloud experts.

Experts are also predicting that the war of cloud providers is over. The public cloud market share will consolidate around 3 vendors, Amazon (AWS), Microsoft (Azure) and IBM (SoftLayer).

Businesses will have to start looking at how to build cloud-native enterprise applications and migrate business process to cloud. At CGS, we are striving to make this migration to cloud quick, smooth and cost-effective for our clients.
