The Majority of IT spending will be focused on the Cloud by 2016

Cloud ComputingAccording to Gartner, Inc., the use of cloud computing is rapidly growing. By 2016, this growth is expected to increase, becoming the majority of new IT spend. As hybrid cloud solutions begin to replace private cloud solutions, 2016 will be a significant year for cloud computing. In fact, almost half of all large enterprises will integrate hybrid cloud solutions into their IT infrastructure by the end of 2017.

A majority of application migration will occur over the next few years. Some organizations are already in the process of deploying cloud computing technologies. If this trend continues, Gartner, Inc.’s prediction will become true.

However, enterprises will most likely use a variety of cloud models, including private and hybrid. Chances are, there will be a multicloud reality, as opposed to a hybrid one. In most enterprises today, the cloud deployments are more complex than public, private, or hybrid.

Regardless of the form of cloud computing, cloud growth will be primarily driven by the individual business, not IT departments. Many businesses are looking for a cost effective way to provide services, decrease time to market, and increase business agility.

With delivering services through the cloud, we’re able to create an economy based on delivery and consumption of everything from computation and storage to video and finance deduction management.

Cloud computing has grown at rates much higher than typical IT spending. Most of the growth in cloud services is driven by new IT computing scenarios being deployed through cloud models. The growth is likely to focus around application migration and application development, as the value lies in the application side of cloud computing.
