Meta: Have you ever wondered about the future of cloud computing – a vital part of businesses? Here are some opinions of the industry experts.
The invention of cloud computing has been bringing plenty of advantages. Cloud computing becomes an essential part of any business. Let’s see what experts in this field discuss the future of cloud computing.

According to Michael Corrado, in the future, businesses will experience a combination of cloud-based software products. The issue of security and privacy of data in the cloud also is resolved as a result of combined IT solution balancing scalability and flexibility. The practice of leveraging the infrastructure of cloud computing providers will benefit customers.
Besides, to fulfil the demand for big companies, the rapid scale will be seen in most cloud computing providers. However, there is a drawback coming with it. Customers’ experience will be limited by the speed and reliability of the internet connection; thus, affecting the cloud computing performance of businesses.
Matt Riley – CEO ond Co-Founder of Swiftype
As forecasted by Matt Riley, in the future, every business, no matter its size, will turn to use cloud computing and dismiss hardware. This change will make them productive and efficient – much more than when they use hardware for data storage. This will arise another problem related to the ability to “leverage the collective knowledge created in these silos regardless of which service you are using at the moment”. Add to this, the fragmentation of content and data today will affect badly to organization, discovery, research and the collaboration between staffs and departments.
Tom Gillis – Founder and CEO Of Bracket Computing
According to Tom Gillis, the future will witness the appearance of a hybrid cloud computing model which will be managed efficiently with a set of controls. Because we are in the information era, now and future, companies will find struggled building an IT infrastructure with a sufficient responsive ability to deal with the development.
In the future, we can expect best-of-breed software infrastructure with excellent encryption, authentication, network segmentation, along with data integrity and data management across several clouds.
The ability to migrate existing business controls and the extension of policies to suit the number of workloads are also available. More flexibility allows businesses to lower their costs considerably. Cloud computing management will be facilitated with the operation of an entire data centre reducing to the movement of simple controls.
Jeff Fisher – VP, Strategic Alliances and Category-Creating Enterprise Technology Executive at Kemptechnologies
Jeff Fisher has the same opinion as some experts above about the hybrid cloud computing. Public hyperscale clouds and private clouds will be leverage. He believes strongly in the multiple cloud platform leverage of businesses. According to him, by doing so, companies are able to avoid lock-in to a single provider while enjoying more complexity.
Jeff Schilling – CSO of Armor
The CSO of Armor is convinced by the tendency to repeat in cycles of history. In this century, we have seen the significant rise of cloud computing services. And the next innovation in this field may relate to quantum computing, artificial intelligence and the combination of the human brain and machine. The frequency spectrum will bring us back to a distributed architecture because the centralization of this powerful framework is impossible with too-small pipes.

Kostis Mamassis expects that in the next few years, people will see the movement of 25% of application to cloud computing. The mass use of cloud computing services, in combination with the demand to simplify operations, without a doubt will put huge pressure on cloud computing providers to create connections between different apps.
Thus, according to him, updating APIs and growing the list of integrations will be what cloud providers concentrate in the future. The usability and interface are also improved significantly in a way that facilities customers in using cloud computing services.
Mike Smith – Founder of Aerocomince.Com
Mike Smith believes that in the upcoming 15 years, half of the small businesses (less than 500 staffs) will adopt Desktop as a Service (DaaS) in order to deploy workstation to their employees. Each workstation will be equipped with a monitor, keyboard, mouse and a thin client. Additionally, these small companies will hire a third-party cloud computing providers for the handling of desktop appearance, applications and computer functionality.
There are several different opinions about how cloud computing will be in the future. No matter what the opinion is, it can be seen that cloud computing will continuously prove its key importance in any business.
