6 Areas to Watch in Cloud Growth – Part 2
The public cloud is set to continue growing with cloud spending expected to reach $122 billion in 2017 according to the latest market reports by IDC and Gartner. According to both IDC and Gartner Software as a service (SaaS) will remain the dominant cloud computing type and continue to grow to almost 60% by 2020.
There are many trends to watch out for over the next three years according to these recent reports and in this two-part post we will share six of these trends with you.
Cloud Purchase Priorities
IDC says that though spending priorities differ depending on the size of the company, customer relationship management (CRM) and enterprise resource management (ERM) applications are leading product categories, and server and storage hardware spending will also grow.
Large, Mid-Size Businesses Drive Public Cloud Spend
Nearly half of all public cloud spending will come from businesses with more than 1,000 employees, while medium-sized businesses (between 100-499 employees) will deliver more than 20 percent throughout the forecast, IDC says.
Demand from Compute-Intensive Workloads Drives Cloud Growth
Compute intensive workloads, such as artificial intelligence (AI), analytics, and the Internet of Things (IoT) will drive more cloud growth in the IaaS space. Migration of infrastructure to the cloud will also drive this growth, according to Gartner.
