Next 2015: A Big Year for Cloud Computing-3 Next

More Startups and More Innovation

In 2015, we will see even more startups emerging to solve problems both big and small. Startups in 2015 will benefit from a wide array of open source technology building blocks and ever cheaper cloud infrastructure. Multiple avenues exist to finance a new business, including startup incubators, angel syndicates, and Kickstarter campaigns. New teams are creatively combining these funding sources with "lean" principles to efficiently determine if an idea is worth pursuing.

While it's never been easier to technically build something, the real work is figuring out what to create. There will be a lot of "spaghetti" thrown against the wall to see what sticks with customers.

Given the rising cloud adoption, the increased interest in data visualization tools and the rise of internal enterprise app stores, 2015 is expected to be a big year for the cloud. Cloud adoption has reached a tipping point with a majority of businesses deploying at least a portion of their processes to the cloud. Debate still surrounds whether organizations should embrace public cloud versus private cloud deployments, but businesses, as well as consumers, are becoming more and more comfortable with the technology and flexibility provided by cloud deployments.

In this slideshow, Greg Arnette, CTO and founder of Sonian, a pioneer in cloud-based archiving, provides insights on the factors he predicts will have a major impact on the cloud industry this year.

Sonian preserves, protects and presents the world's information. More than 19,000 customers in 40 countries trust Sonian's secure proprietary SaaS platform and cloud search engine to retain and retrieve valuable data and protect intellectual property.
