Chit Chat: Cloud Computing Trends 2017

Cloud computing continues to push traditional computing models into the 21st century. It’s a force that has disrupted the tech market over the past 10 years and it’s changing the way operations are performed and managed. There are several cloud platforms in place; these include Amazon Web Services, Google, Oracle and Microsoft. These platforms continue to set the pace of private and hosted cloud computing. Here are some of the areas that businesses need to concentrate to benefit from cloud computing:
  • Work on your private cloud strategy
  • Educate yourself on the upcoming developments in security, networking, infrastructure and containers
  • Examine your industry-specific cloud providers
