Cloud Computing in 2017

Cloud computing has been transformative for both businesses and individuals in the last five years, and 2017 is shaping up to be a very innovative year.

One change coming in 2017 is that enterprises will begin taking advantage of the cloud. Enterprises have big budgets as well as big data needs. They are beginning to see the cloud as a viable place to run their core business applications.

38% of enterprises say that they are implementing private clouds, and 32% are using public cloud services. The rest of the enterprises are planning on moving to a cloud based system within the next 12 months. It’s also expected that many businesses that opted to build a private cloud will move to a public cloud service this year because maintaining a private cloud is time consuming and costly.

Globally, the public cloud market is growing at a rate of 22% a year. Amazon, Microsoft, Google, and IBM have emerged as “Mega Cloud Providers”. While these big players may have the lion's share of the market, there’s also plenty of room for smaller regional players who should also see an increase in business in 2017.

Companies will also have to deal with the challenges that come with Cloud computing, including security, monitoring, and storage issues.
