Cloud Computing Trends for 2016

Cloud Computing Trends for 2016The most current and undeniable trend is the fact that cloud computing is growing in both size of the market and total amount of use. Businesses and private citizens are using it more and more thanks to the fact that cloud storage is introducing people to it and educating people about it.

Security Is Taking More Of A Back Seat

The most recent trend includes a big push for security. A lot of cloud companies were investing a sizable portion of their development and maintenance budgets into security. This trend seems to have peaked and is now going in the other direction.

The most probable reason for this is because of all the cloud security breaches that have been in the press. There was a belief that security breaches would bring Cloud companies to their knees, here but even highly publicized breaches have not damaged the Cloud companies involved or the Cloud industry in general. It is unlikely they will do so in 2016 and beyond.

Pay As You Go Cloud Computing

Pay-as-you-go Cloud computing is not a new idea, prostate but it is a highly underutilized in the same way that fibre optic broadband was underutilized for so many years. The most plausible prediction for 2016 is that pay-as-you-go cloud computing will become very common in the business world. Many companies have ad-hoc programs and processes they need to run on a very irregular basis. A pay-as-you-go cloud computing plan may be just the ticket for these companies.

Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)

Software-as-a-service (SaaS) is becoming more common, and PaaS is likely to follow in time. Small businesses are already using PaaS as safe areas where they can develop apps and programs without risking their own systems or any critical data. There is also talk of businesses using PaaS to create applications that engage citizens by targeting their specific needs.

Mobile Cloud computing

There are companies that now sell mobile cloud computing. Instead of local hardware running tasks, people may gain access to the processing power offered by the cloud. The biggest problem with this service so far is that it seems pointless. Most processes that need to be done on a mobile phone can be handled by the hardware mobile phones already possess.

Why use the cloud to do something a phone can already do? The reason the trend for mobile loud computing may increase revolves around companies trying to make larger and more complex processes mobile. One could then argue that a phone could be stripped of its technology and have most of its processes undertaken by cloud computing, but what is the point? Phones are already very thin and very light, so why strip them of their technology?

Wearable technology

There may not be a need for cloud computing in the mobile phone and tablet world, but if wearable technology grows in popularity, then mobile cloud computing will take off in a big way. The big question is if wearable technology is going to become more popular. If lots of people start wearing the technology, then cloud computing will gain ever more customers. If it turns into just another fad, then the trend for mobile cloud computing in wearable devices will not take off.
