Cloud : IT’s New Normal
Gartner recently forecasted the worldwide Public Cloud revenue to grow from US$242.7 billion in 2019 to US$257.9 billion in 2020 and to US$306.9 billion in 2021, with the effects of the global economic downturn intensifying the urgency for organizations to move away from legacy infrastructure operating models. “When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, there were a few initial hiccups but cloud ultimately delivered exactly what it was supposed to,” said Sid Nag, research vice president at Gartner. “It responded to increased demand and catered to customers’ preference of elastic, pay-as-you-go consumption models.” Even as organizations look at adopting more digital ways of doing business in a post COVID-19 world, they will need to consider how they can do so cost-effectively.
According to Gartner’s Mr Nag, the cloud offers two main advantages: cost scale with use and deferred spending. “CIOs can invest significantly less cash upfront by utilizing cloud technology rather than scaling up on-premises data center capacity or acquiring traditional licensed software.”
