Cloud computing removes the need to invest in owning and buying expensive infrastructure for complex computing applications. In fact, cloud service providers provide running of servers and data centers “as-a-service” that helps overcome the challenges of training and hiring the workforce.
As we all know, during 2020/2021, Cloud Computing exploded as work went globally virtual and businesses reconciled to the global pandemic by concentrating on the delivery of digital services. 2022 was not an exception; it automatically saw a continuation of rapid adoption and growth. In 2023 too companies are expected to continue to leverage cloud services for accessing the latest technologies that will improve the efficiency of their operations and processes.
Worldwide end-user spending on public cloud services is forecast to grow 20.7% to a total of $591.8 billion in 2023, up from $490.3 billion in 2022, according to the latest forecast from Gartner, Inc. It was $313 billion in 2021.
In 2022, Cloud computing becoming the backbone of all digital services from streaming entertainment to social media to 5G and WIFI 6E, which needed more Data – thereby more usage of Cloud Computing. Following are a few expected trends for 2023 in cloud computing:
- Cloud security and resilience
- Low-code and no-code cloud services
- AI and ML-powered cloud
- Cloud gaming
Cloud security and resilience
Migrating to the cloud exposes companies to a lot of cybersecurity threats. Additionally, the rules on how businesses can store and use personal data require a lot of compliance practices to be implemented. Hence, cyber security and building resilience are business critical. Proper use of AI and predictive technology can help spot threats before they cause problems.
Low-code and no-code cloud services
Low-code and no-code solutions include tools for building web applications, automating spreadsheet tasks, websites, and designing digital solutions that companies may need. Low-code and no-code reduce the challenges in leveraging AI and ML and will help provide many of these services via the cloud.
Another Cloud computing trend prevalent in 2022 was multi-clouding. It is a strategy that uses more than one cloud it helps in driving innovations, avoiding lock-in with one vendor, and helps in achieving complete agility. With high-speed and low-interval infrastructure, the multi-cloud and hybrid cloud helped the industry work better in 2022.
2023 may be the year businesses understand the advantages of spreading their services across a number of cloud providers. A multi-cloud approach offers many advantages, such as improved flexibility and security, the creation of redundancy that prevents downtime and system errors from causing a critical failure of business operations.
“While back in 2020, most companies (70 percent) said they were still tied to one cloud service provider, reports have found that 84% of mid-to-large companies will have adopted a multi-cloud strategy by 2023, positioning it as one of the year’s defining trends in cloud computing.”
AI and ML-powered cloud
Gathering data and training algorithms always requires a lot of storage space and computing power, and cloud computing helps make it cost-efficient by providing it on rent as-a-service. AI helps Cloud service providers themselves by managing the vast, regulating the power and cooling systems in data centers, and powering cyber security solutions that keep their data safe.
Hyperscale cloud service providers such as Amazon, Google, and Microsoft are expected to continue to create more efficient/cost-effective cloud services for their customers in 2023.
Cloud Computing technologies saw a major mutiny of cloud gaming in the year 2022 as there were virtually unlimited options of games for flat monthly fees which enabled the masses to enjoy playing games on smartphones, laptops, and desktops.
Cloud gaming could become the “killer app” for 5G in the same way that streaming video was for 4G and streaming music was for 3G.
While Cloud Computing in 2022 made many technologies accessible, the mass adoption of cloud computing will continue to be the key driver of transformative technology trends such as artificial intelligence (AI), virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR), the metaverse, the internet of things (IoT), cloud gaming, and even quantum computing.
Quantum computing also made trends in Cloud computing which uses the laws of quantum mechanics to solve problems that are somewhat complex for old and traditional computers like drug development, cybersecurity, solar capture, and financial modeling.
Cloud computing is set to continue to enable flexibility with cost-effectiveness in almost all business operations and there is no denying the fact that it is the FUTURE.
