Cloud in 2016

As we enter 2016, we can expect cloud providers to place a stronger emphasis on cloud security. Malicious attackers are becoming more sophisticated and finding new ways to target enterprise applications and data.

To defend against such attacks, cloud providers will proactively deliver security best practices reports and start tapping predictive analytics to analyze potential vulnerabilities. Advanced security solutions and true visibility into the status of cloud infrastructure will help companies minimize security risks and ultimately maintain cloud industry momentum.

Cloud computing adoption is showing no signs of slowing down. In fact, according to a 2014 IDG Cloud Computing Study, cloud investments have increased by 19 percent in large-scale enterprises spending on average $3.3M a year. Not only that, but according to a recent report from RightScale, an overwhelming 93 percent of IT professionals have adopted the cloud in some form.

As the cloud continues on the path toward complete enterprise adoption, Pete Zimmerman, vice president of client services and operations, Sonian, takes a closer look at how far the market has come in such a short period of time, and how we can expect it to continue to (quickly) grow in the years ahead.
