2020: What Does Technology Bring To The Table

Cloud 2020

The internet and computer service related industries are the most versatile and flexible. Under the guidance of probably the most ingenious individuals, there is no telling where the industry is headed. However, most tech-enthusiasts, myself included are well aware that the possibilities are beyond imagination. It is common for inventions to leave human being awestruck, more so with regard to technology. However, it is only fair for us to postulate the expectations in order to enhance our preparedness to absorb the changes and unwrap the gifts of the ingenuity of human beings.

Cloud computing has advanced beyond what most people expected. In the next ten years, there is no telling what will become of the virtualization of computing services. However, some expectations can be posted, although I can promise you that these are based on what the human mind can fathom based on past experiences.

  • Cloud as part of the organization

Most organizations are bound to adopt cloud computing by 2020. Although the benefits of cloud computing are clear to most organizations, not many companies have taken up the practice. Lack of structural and logistical parameters has limited the expansion of the facilities. However, these issues are sure to be solved in the near future, making it possible for many organizations to join the cloud.

  • Divorce of hardware and software

Most PCs run on software installed on site. Well, cloud computing is sure to propagate the invisibility of computing. Since hardware and software components will be highly virtualized, one will not be able to determine the infrastructure of their network, and the need for that will be non-existent. Most of the technologies will become service-centered, thereby enhancing the utility drawn from computing.

  • Modulation of software

Modular software is built in elements that can be dismantled to enhance improvements without necessarily causing shutdown. The users of such computers will however require a novel mindset to handle such demands. The advantages of modular software are the continuity of service provision and the ability to remain versatile in the face of changing technologies. The ultimate federation of software is bound to make universal software available, making it possible for maintenance of universal standards for software.

  • Automation of services through social-software and the collaborative cloud

Advancements in software are bound to center around enhancement of compatibility of all hardware and software facilities. Ultimately, software and hardware resources will be available in intelligent syntax, allowing for automated match-making for service provision. In other words, services will mould themselves according to tasks, considering that the number of data centers will be limitless. Picture databases automatically selecting a server, or a specific set of servers, just the way you would like the status of a friend on a social network. Probably, the databases will eventually seek out ‘friend’ servers and assign tasks to such servers.

  • Faster connection speeds

Connecting to the cloud is bound to grow faster, considering that a huge number of individuals will be utilizing the services concurrently. Since the clouds will provide storage and software services, the need for faster processing speeds is bound to surface and a solution found. Currently, most individuals relying on the contemporary onsite hardware-software facilities will require a reason to move to the cloud. Processing speeds are bound to be a pull and push factor, depending on the scenario.

This is just a tip of the iceberg regarding what to expect from cloud computing. The rate at which changes are occurring makes it virtually impossible to state with certainty. More on this will be coming up, but meanwhile, be ready to find out exactly why every cloud has a silver lining and why this cloud could present a gold lining.
