Based on our two previous “Cloud Computing History” blogs, you may have noticed how quickly the Cloud has evolved throughout its lifespan, particularly in the 2000s. More users are drawn to the Cloud every day because of its unique capabilities, and it is now utilized across most markets. This rapid increase in Cloud growth probably won’t stop anytime soon; if anything, it will continue to grow.
The Cloud’s flexibility, security, and reliability make it ideal for use in most instances of data storage. According to Gartner Inc., worldwide end-user spending on public cloud services is forecast to grow 18.4% in 2021 to total $304.9 billion, up from $257.5 billion in 2020. This recent increase in spending on the Cloud can be attributed (at least in part) to the pandemic. The Cloud has proven to be vital to the ever-changing modern workplace of 2021.
Some may question whether the use of the Cloud will continue to rise after the end of the pandemic. The Cloud has proven to be an effective solution that enables businesses to continue work; while saving money on utilities. Because of this, even after the COVID-19 crisis, many offices will likely continue with some form of remote work. The top choice may be to implement a hybrid office model where employees (depending on the demands of their job) can work at the office, work remotely, or even work a combination of the two. The pandemic has proven that, with the help of the Cloud, this hybrid model works.
The data agrees that “The future of work is here and its hybrid,” according to Microsoft’s 2021 Report, “73 percent of workers surveyed want flexible remote work options to continue, while at the same time, 67 percent are craving more in-person time with their teams. To prepare, 66 percent of business decision-makers are considering redesigning physical spaces to better accommodate hybrid work environments.”
Because the Cloud allows access to company data securely, from anywhere, it enables offices to implement and maintain a hybrid working environment. With the direction businesses are trending to for the future, it looks bright for the Cloud.
