Insights from TBR’s 2020 Cloud Predictions
The easy days of cloud are coming to a close. The good news is that the benefits of cloud are not just a marketing pitch; they are very real for adopting customers. Customers will need the experience they have developed with cloud to address any remaining on-premises workloads, which are a challenge and risk to change regardless of the delivery method. Put simply, the real work of applying cloud not purely as a technology but as a solution to core business problems begins in 2020, and vendors must also adjust to accommodate customers’ heightened needs.
- Executive changes — the initial stewards of cloud’s growth are turning over.
- Cross-vendor cooperation moves from important to necessary.
- Customers eventually favor best-of-suite rather than best-of-breed.
- Amazon Web Services is being challenged by both direct competition and new market approaches.
