More businesses, small and large, are choosing to transition their IT departments to the cloud, at what many believe to be an exponential rate. For example, the International Data Corporation expects the cloud to grow from $3.8 billion or 600,000 units in 2010, to $6.4 billion or more than 1.3 million units by 2014.
While the cloud industry grows, businesses work to adjust and train in the hopes of taking advantage of these new and efficient advances. According to CIOzone.com, cloud computing, as a whole, is trending toward the beneficial sides. The current popular security concerns, the website asserts, will be a thing of the past soon enough. As IT departments become more accustomed to the technology, and management becomes more effective, security threats will diminish, the website adds.
According to the website, custom software will also be forced to adjust to the cloud in its developmental stages. This will be a result of the custom software needed to evolve along with the cloud, and run more efficiently on the new servers.
Innovations of cloud-based systems, the website asserts, will be the more important trend going forward, along with standards solidifying to which all cloud systems will have to follow.
