How cloud computing will power innovation in 2020

#artificialintelligence

Cloud computing is so commonplace that it is easy to overlook. But behind music streaming, Internet-of-Things connectivity, and countless other innovations is the cloud. The ubiquity of cloud computing has created a $200 billion cloud services industry dominated by big tech names like Amazon and Microsoft, along with software companies on the rise like Salesforce and Workday. Quartz's latest presentation tells you everything you need to know about the cloud services industry and how it will keep driving innovation in 2020 and beyond.


The enterprise technologies to watch in 2016

ZDNet

This year's round-up of enterprise technologies to watch in 2016 is more crowded than ever. This is partly due to the fact that there's just more new tech this year, and partly because the consumer-focused side of the technology industry is creating ever more disruptive advances that enterprises are simply required to face more quickly to maintain their relevancy in the market. There are several new additions to the list this year that -- despite rampant overuse of the term these days -- hold the potential to be genuinely disruptive in the short term. These include blockchain, digital/customer experience management, and real-time stream processing, or fast data. More tactical, though still important to carefully consider throughout the phases of tech planning, pilots, growth, and maturity are technologies that are likely to add something significant to the way enterprises operate and which therefore have non-trivial impact to competitive advantage.

Driving the next wave of cloud innovation

#artificialintelligence

Every industry in recent years has been undergoing a rapid digital transformation coupled with cloud innovation to meet the growing demand. However, the pandemic--which has made the economy tighter and altered our working style--has catalysed this whole journey. Cloud has always been viewed as an innovation vehicle to deliver the full potential of a business and advance business objectives. In the current situation, companies are expanding their use of cloud technology and optimising it for transformation in the digital economy. Business leaders today must ensure resilience, efficiency, and flexibility while supporting strategic transformation; and this is not limited just to the IT industry.


Cloud computing turning point: The innovation phase has begun

#artificialintelligence

In the past, when I've spoken to clients about cloud computing, those conversations were mostly with line-of-business managers focused on cutting costs and getting new, customer-facing applications up and running quickly. Today, the tide has turned, as chief executives and other line leaders want to know how cloud computing can help them transform their entire business, create new models and spur innovation. While much of the attention in cloud has been focused on public infrastructure deployments, that is only part of the overall story. Now those conversations reflect an intense interest in digital transformation through open, industry-specific hybrid cloud solutions that deliver higher value with analytics and cognitive capabilities. Overwhelmingly, what we are hearing from clients and the market is the need for a clear path to extend the significant IT investments they have made by leveraging new, innovative cloud services, while ensuring their data is protected.
