A new year means a new roundup of cloud computing trends that agencies and organizations should watch closely. By now, every insider and industry website has posted differing projections on what the year will hold for the cloud at large.
Here are three IT and cloud computing trends that could impact your agency in one way or another in the coming months:
- Cybersecurity threats will continue to rise: Marriott, Pacific Airways, Google, and Facebook. Last year was rife with headlines touting high-profile data breaches that affected millions across the globe with 2019 looking likely to repeat that trend. As the number of organizations moving to the cloud increases, so too will cyberattacks, hacks, and other dangers such as IoT device vulnerability and insider threats.
Agencies must be vigilant to ensure safety measures, such as continuous monitoring, are in place as breaches, and the architects responsible for them, continue to evolve.
- Hybrid and Multi-cloud will share the spotlight: According to insiders, multi-cloud solutions are quickly becoming the new normal. The multi-cloud model allows enterprise customers to leverage the benefits of at least two providers to prevent data loss and downtime and protect their mission-critical tasks.
Additionally, many analysts believe hybrid cloud – which merges the benefits of public and private clouds – will also grow in popularity with Federal agencies, where the model can help to streamline complicated migration processes.
- Traditional services will continue to expand. According to a recent study by Gartner, the public cloud market – including Software as a Service (Saas) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings – is expected to exceed $300 billion over the next two years, with Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) leading the way as the fastest growing segment. After hitting an all-time high last year, government cloud spending is expected to soar again in 2019.
