Cloud services are now an integral part of business life and provide significant opportunities to accelerate business through rapid scalability, enabling us to be flexible with our resources and to provide new collaboration opportunities. Typical organizations use an average of 1,935 cloud services which include mission-critical services obtained by IT departments such as Office 365 and less well-known and risky services like Mega. In this way, sensitive data open the way to the cloud, with 21% of all files in the cloud containing sensitive content.
Somehow 2019 will be as usual for large public cloud providers. Current infrastructure as a service model is well established in today’s business environment and vendors welcome any new technology that increases CPU and RAM consumption.
Although enterprise-class multi-cloud is common, major cloud providers must be relevant to the company’s IT strategy and be different from other cloud providers. To achieve this, big players like Google tend to focus on their AI credentials, while Microsoft does not have the ability to migrate workloads. This difference will be important for officials because they may be under increasing pressure from other players in the public cloud this year.
