This past year has been particularly successful for the cloud industry. The unprecented growth pace will be further accelerated next year according to research company Forrester that listed the most important trends to shape cloud computing in 2017.
Cloud Year 2017 will be the year of enterprises. Cloud technology and solutions were first implemented by companies developing digital products like gaming and media companies. More traditional industries followed a bit later and are now more and more starting their cloud journey, step-by-step. Especially banks and financial institutions are currently investing heavily in digital services and entering into the cloud era.
"Enterprises with big budgets, data centers and complex applications are now looking at cloud as a viable place to run core business applications", says Forrester analyst Dave Bartoletti.
According to Forrester the global public cloud market will be growing 22 % in 2017. The lion's share of this growth will come from Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft, Google and IBM. The big players won't be able to serve every unique request or offer taylored solutions to all customers, which means a bit smaller, regional players will see an uptick in adoption in 2017. Forrester analyst encourages to keep ones options open and don't be afraid to use multiple providers.
