User experience is paramount

User experience (UX) will be one of the most important factors in cloud computing in the near term, something that CIOs and IT pros are becoming increasingly more aware of as they re-engineer their IT departments to deliver the computing capabilities their users need with the as-a-service ease they've come to expect. Price will always be a factor, but as a new cloud era emerges, application-centric development and performance as well as UX will play equally important roles.

Cloud computing is maturing and, as it struggles to take the next bold step forward, cloud providers will differentiate themselves through specialization, predicts Vince DeLuca, CEO for Logicalis US, an international IT solutions and managed services provider.

IT departments today are defined by how their users access and consume technology and how that access impacts the business' overall performance. Moving to "the cloud," for many, has meant a slow transition, often testing the cloud with generic providers.

Cloud providers will soon be forced to adopt a specialty focus, offering solutions tailored to individual applications, and vying to be known as the best for certain specialties: mobile sales applications or DRaaS, for example. The battle for dominion over these capabilities and innovations is heating up, and CIOs and their organizations will be the beneficiaries.
