The Future Of The Cloud

As barriers to entry lower and the benefits increase, an increasing amount of corporations are choosing to make cloud based solutions a part of their operating model. According to a recent survey by market research firm Loudhouse, most chief Information officers now report lower concerns about security, reliability, transparency of cost, and integration than they did in 2009. Given this, Loudhouse project that adoption of cloud based technology, including software as a service (SaaS) and remote file storage, will continue to increase in the coming years, with six in ten CIOs expecting it to become the chief method of IT delivery by 2014. This increase will only be a continuation of current trends, though, as cloud based solutions have seen a surge in popularity over the past several years.

Athough the reasons are sometimes debated, the increase could be due in part to the attractiveness of moving computing expenses from capital expenditures (CapEx) to operating expenditures (OpEx). Comments JD Power & Associates Telecommunications Director Frank Perrazzini, “While traditional data services… offer a package of services, SaaS provides… data as a commoditized service, where differentiation among providers is primarily based on price, bandwidth and reliability.”

If the cloud is to become the most prevalent method of IT delivery, it must continue to undergo changes and be held to a higher standard than it is today. Top technology research firm Gartner Inc. predicts that by 2013, 40% of enterprises will make independent security testing a precondition for using any type of cloud service. This will be taken to its natural next step in 2014, when corporations move towards SLA standards, requiring security and enterprise tests in B2B cloud implementations.

By 2015, the demand to have software easily available on every platform will lead to more flexible SaaS licensing, like subscriptions, pay per use and used licenses. By 2016, expenditure on other types of licenses is predicted to be approximately the same as expenditure on traditional software licences.

As the Cloud becomes widely used and more complex, enterprises and technology firms will be forced to come up with innovative solutions to continue to make it a viable and effective alternative to traditional computing.
