10 PREDICTII DESPRE CLOUD IN 2015 CARE SUNT DEJA CERTITUDINI

logo_it_trendsCa de fiecare data, sfârșitul lui 2014 a fost vremea analizelor și a predicțiilor pentru noul an. Am tot citit predictii facute de firmele de consultanță sau analize ale caselor de cercetare, am citit parerile diferitelor VIP-uri din industrie și comentariile analistilor independenți, ba mai mult de atat am citit si despre ce nu vom mai vedea in 2015…

cloud-computing-2015-300x225Din tot acest amalgam de informatii, profitand de această emulație de idei care gravitează în jurul publicațiilor și forumurilor de discuții, am incercat si eu propria-mi analiză… Dar am ales un criteriu pragmatic, selectand dintre numeroasele predictii pe acelea care deja se intampla…

Am optat deci pentru trecerea de la ”ar putea fi” la ”deja există” – E clar că tehnologiile cloud s-au impus și denigratorii noilor concepte și scepticii au o putere de recție din ce în ce mai firavă în fața evidențelor. Exista deja evaluari, calcule de ROI, sunt deja procese care au fost efectuate cu succes si pot fi replicate, pe modelul adoptarii a cee cel mai bun din best practices.

Cum era și normal au apărut și eșecuri, dar marea lor majoritate sau datorat supraevaluării potențialului de absorbție a Cloud-ului. Cu alte cuvinte s-au încercat migrări sau implementări de Cloud acolo unde nu era nevoie de așa ceva…

Dar e mai bine sa cititi despre celelalte predictii, devenite deja certitudini in articolul “DE LA CLOUD HIBRID LA MOBILE CLOUD, 10 PREDICȚII CARE SE ANUNȚĂ CA CERTITUDINI ÎN 2015“, aparut in IT Trends din Ianuarie 2015.
