By 2016, Most New IT Spending Will Be In The Cloud

In an era when technologies are becoming portable day-by-day and are not anymore limited to user-supervision, cloud computing is a segment which is a new development being made for better business operations. This segment is said to grow exponentially by the year 2016 when it would take the largest portion of investments of both existing & emerging businesses.

As per the recent analyses made by Gartner Inc. approximately after two years (since 2013 is about to end), a new era will begin with a wide introduction to and implementation of cloud computing. It would be considered a core need for all types of organizations to operate their businesses effectively. And as a matter of fact, private cloud would start evolving into a hybrid cloud and it’s only a matter of time when almost half of the quantity of large enterprises will invest in and deploy hybrid cloud computing by the end of year 2016.

According to Gartner, cloud computing is basically an advanced method of computing which consists of all the latest most-advanced IT-enabled facilities and capabilities. By using cloud computing, these features are delivered as services. And needless to say, cloud computing has already shaped into a trending industry which is the hot talk of the town.

Just as organizations and large enterprises design their individual cloud computing strategy, the procedure should be divided into two primary IT-focused work flows; while two would be supporting the IT framework a full-strategically designed business work flow would operate at the back-end. Those two main workflows include the enterprise in the first place where it is being treated as a customer of cloud services and that it is forwarding the same services to its customers. At the time when the organization is itself a customer, the focus is put on the capabilities and functionalities related to IT which the organization expects to be delivered as services. The main purpose of this cycle is to determine the possibilities and circumstances as to why and how cloud services should be utilized and what’s the perfect time to do that. This entire back-end procedure should be managed by the main service provider, including all the hardware and software managements. Organization/Enterprise (consumer) should not have any concern with it.

The latter part of the workflow involves procedures such as securing, organizing and controlling cloud-computing services. And yet, the last step defines the business of the enterprise. Apart from being a customer or a provider of cloud services, there are bright opportunities to utilize the same purchase to provide those services to business partners and consumers. This means that large enterprises would benefit from both B2B and B2C.

With that many facilities and capabilities being presented by cloud-computing, it is no wonder that why large enterprises would look forward to investing a great sum of capital in it in the upcoming few years. However, the expansion of this segment should do more with application development in the near future.
