Why 2020 Will Be The Year Of The Cloud

The great enterprise migration has already begun, and by 2025 it is expected that over 80% of enterprises will shift to the public cloud. Cloud opens limitless possibilities for enterprises. It offers the choice of both flexibility and scalability to meet demanding computing needs.

While the 2010s introduced enterprises to the benefits of digital transformation, 2020s will be about digital technologies driving enterprise business growth and innovation. Cloud computing will be spearheading this enterprise leap towards digital transformation.


The benefits of adopting a cloud-first strategy offer multiple benefits. While in the past enterprises were left stranded and helpless against technology evolution, the cloud offers them the capabilities to not just stay on track with technology evolution but also drive maximum benefit from it.

In this blog, we look at some of the key factors that will make cloud computing technology of choice for enterprises in 2020.

1. The Reliability of Containers

Containers are the most reliable way to build, test and deploy applications on multiple environments. Unlike traditional development VM environments, containers need limited resources and promise greater consistency and efficiency. Furthermore, they are tailored to integrate agile and DevOps environments seamlessly.

2. The Power of Edge Computing


Manufacturing, Transportation & Logistics and utility industries are expected to spend $40B each on IoT platforms, systems, and services. (Source: Forbes) While IoT enhances asset utilization and efficiency, it can trigger network latency. With edge-computing, enterprises can now process data at the source and maintain optimum performance levels.

3. The All Pervasive Scope of Mobility

Today enterprises employ a diverse workforce. The need for a framework that leads to a connected workforce is a top priority for most enterprises. From remote workspaces to data-access on-the-go, cloud computing is a catalyst for enterprise mobility. Moreover, the ability to scale on demand (Vertical and Horizontal) requires an efficient infrastructure with unprecedented flexibility. Cloud offers a ‘one size fits all’ strategy to all critical mobility needs of a modern enterprise.

4. Corroborating Accelerated Innovation

Innovation is the only way for enterprises to grow irrespective of its size. Innovation helps enterprises to scale up and command a greater market share. The key to enterprise innovation is creating an ecosystem that fosters great ideas, enhances collaboration and easy technology integration.
A cloud environment, especially hybrid, does all this and much more.

  • Cloud makes employee collaboration and communication seamless.
  • Cloud ensures easy sourcing and business-IT alignment.
  • Cloud allows enterprises to test new technologies and resources on demand.

5. Winning Digital Disruptions

Digital disruption is real, and enterprises that are not willing to adapt, innovate and evolve will not survive the changing market dynamics and competition. Cloud offers the perfect platform for enterprises to manage and maximize benefits from digital disruptions like Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Machine Learning, and much more.

An AWS server can be deployed within three minutes. Compared to this, an organization can take up to a few weeks to deploy a server internally. This is the power of cloud computing. It is lightning fast, easily scalable and extremely secure.
