SIOS Technology Reveals Cloud Predictions for 2019

SIOS Technology Corp.'s President and CEO Jerry Melnick reveals his top cloud predictions for 2019. The cloud has a rich history of continual improvements, and 2019 will usher in some fairly significant ones that enhance capabilities, simplify operations and reduce costs. Melnick outlines the following five major trends that guide his predictions:

1. Advances in Technology Will Make the Cloud Substantially More Suitable for Critical Applications

With IT staff now becoming more comfortable with the cloud for critical applications, their concerns about security and reliability, especially for five-9's of uptime, have diminished substantially. Initially, organizations will prefer to use whatever high availability failover clustering technology they currently use in their data centers to protect critical applications being migrated to the cloud. This clustering technology will also be adapted and optimized for enhanced operations in the cloud. At the same time, cloud service providers will continue to advance their ability to provide higher service levels, leading to the cloud ultimately becoming the preferred platform for all enterprise applications.

Top Five Cloud Trends for 2017

Karl Roe, VP Services and Cloud Solutions Nuvias Group, gives his top predictions for cloud developments in 2017.

1. Un-Clouding
We have all witnessed the ‘cloud rush’ of recent years where organisations have been encouraged to move their workloads to the cloud. However, there is a growing recognition among organisations that cloud services are not the be-all and end-all – and certainly not always the most cost effective way to deliver all their IT workloads.

In several cases, the promised cost savings that customers thought they would receive haven’t materialised – in fact it can be quite the opposite when they first see their bill, after failing to be properly advised on their long-term costs. Many IT service providers have been caught up in the vendor hype surrounding cloud services, and encouraged cloud migration despite the end user often not fully understanding the long-term cost implications.

Cloud Computing: Meg Whitman Will Leave HP and 4 Other Predictions For 2016

Grazed from Fortune. Author: Barb Darrow.

2015 was a blockbuster year in which one tech icon, Hewlett Packard, split itself in half and two others, EMC and Dell attempted to navigate a more-complicated-by-the-minute plan to combine themselves into one. That dichotomy illustrates two world views roiling the tech landscape. HP’s journey exemplified the notion that it’s better to be smaller but more focused on key markets rather than trying to cover the universe.

The Dell worldview, on the other hand, is that bigger is just plain better. Michael Dell is from Texas, after all. With that in mind, here are five totally personal, non-scientific predictions about what will happen in tech in 2016.

1: Meg Whitman will declare victory and exit HP

Count on this one. Whitman, the CEO of Hewlett Packard Enterprise HPE 1.05% and Chairman of HP Inc. HPQ 0.42% , will initiate a search for a replacement (if she hasn’t already), find one, and take a victory lap before departing...
