Why Companies Are Adopting Serverless Cloud Technology

Forbes - Tech

Digital transformation involves building, testing and iterating on applications faster than your competitors -- specifically to meet the personalized, always-available, digital customer experience that people expect from the companies with whom they do business. Serverless technologies are another way to help developers focus on writing code without having to worry about infrastructure -- and companies are able to pay for actual amounts of resources consumed by applications, rather than pre-purchased capacity. Of course, serverless computing uses servers (physical and virtual), but these are meant to be completely abstracted away from the user. This means developers spend more time focused on solving business problems (e.g., faster app deployment) -- which means happier customers and more market differentiation.

For Healthcare, Cloud Computing Comes In Measured Doses

Forbes - Tech

Despite intense concerns about data and HIPAA rules, the cloud is poised to become a big part of healthcare. But much of it is likely to remain on-premises or private clouds, with some reliance on the public kind. A survey from Level 3 and HIMMS Analytics finds growing adoption of cloud for a range of healthcare functions, significantly growing in just the past two years. The survey finds 47% of survey respondents were planning to use the cloud for back office functions, up from 22% just two years ago. Likewise, 47% were planning to use the cloud for business continuity and disaster recovery in 2014 -- up from 31% in 2014.

How Are SMBs Using the Cloud in 2018?


Throughout the rest of 2018, small to mid-size businesses (SMBs) are expected to continue to increase their usage of cloud services for data storage, file hosting and sharing, web-based email and customer relationship management -- in other words, almost every essential function of business. A vast majority of SMBs are already using at least one cloud-based application, and that number is likely to increase this year as these companies continue to discover the competitive advantages offered by the cloud and cloud-based applications. So, how is cloud usage growing and changing for SMBs, and how are providers rising up to meet their demands? More than 60 percent of IT professionals predict their operating system will become irrelevant due to cloud-based programs.1 That's a jaw-dropping statistic, but it makes sense when you see just how far the cloud is infiltrating into daily work life.
