Shaping the Future of Cloud Adoption
It wasn’t so long ago that the discussion of moving to the cloud was filled with a lot of buzzwords and hype. As federal agencies are transforming and embracing a more digital government, the cloud has played a significant role in increasing efficiency, streamlining data and securely managing workloads. Today, agencies are embracing new cloud applications and opening the door to new possibilities. So what’s next on the horizon?
We had the chance to sit down with Mike Smith, Director of Iron Bow’s Service Select practice, to discuss what he sees are some future trends.
According to Smith: “With the adoption of the cloud and the recognition that it is a secure place to work and store data, you’re going to see a lot more applications moving towards it.”
In just the last year, cloud adoption has increased from 63 percent to 77 percent and continues to grow. In this video, Smith discusses two key trends we can expect to see in the near future with further acceptance of the cloud solution:
- Bring your own device: As we continue to adopt cloud computing, we will begin to see more flexible cloud architectures that enable the delivery of any application on any server at any time, and organizations will begin to favor the mobile security model.
- Disaster Recovery: In the event of a system outage, very limited data would be available and loss of productivity is unavoidable. Cloud storage and cloud-enabling technologies will begin to help agencies raise the bar for business continuity.
