<ul><li><p>Cloud Computing trends thatll disrupt the industry in 2015 </p><p>If you were to believe IT experts - Cloud Computing is going to be one of the </p><p>major IT trends in 2015. Experts are of the belief that cloud computing will </p><p>continue to grow manifold. According to Computerworld Forecast Study, the </p><p>growth is expected climb up 42% this year, but given the growing </p><p>opportunities, cloud computing is going to face some upheavals along the </p><p>way. </p><p>------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- </p><p>There is going to be an upsurge in mobile technologies and mainstream business, which is </p><p>going to push the cloud computing space to new heights. In 2015, with the growing demand </p><p>for cloud computing, there are going to be new challenges and opportunities, which could </p><p>some way or the other, disrupt the tending space. </p></li><li><p>Lets read below for some of these key trends that could be a distress to the </p><p>industry: </p><p>1. Increase in containerization of IT resources </p><p>BYOD (bring your own device) policies are increasing of late, thus containerization is bound </p><p>to increase. Mobile devices are being used for both personal and business purposes by </p><p>employees. Business will want to keep both these domains separate, in order to protect </p><p>business data; therefore, organizations will be using containerization to control devices. The </p><p>result is that technologies are increasing and provisioning platform is enabled on shared </p><p>infrastructure allowing employees to perform more tasks with utilization of less resource. </p><p>2. Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) </p><p>Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) allows business to utilize applications and services on a larger </p><p>scale replying on a cloud service provider. As PaaS providers are adding more data </p><p>integration and database management capabilities to enable application building on a large </p><p>scale; PaaS services are only going to increase, Gartner predicts this to rise to about $1.8 </p><p>billion in 2015. </p><p>3. Immergence of Microsoft cloud </p><p>It has been seen in the last year, and its a trend that is going to continue in 2015 </p><p>Microsoft has derived more revenues from cloud based services like Azure and Office 365 </p><p>than from its on-premises applications such as Windows. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella's </p><p>mobile-first, cloud-first initiative is only speeding this process. As more and more cloud and </p><p>on-premises services are integrated with REST and API solutions, data and application </p><p>sources will be able to work together in the cloud to enhance functionality. </p><p>4. Security is a prevailing issue </p><p>Cloud is vulnerable to hacks and as dependence on cloud computing increases, there is </p><p>going to be an increase in nefarious intent to breach cloud security. Lack of training and </p><p>inappropriate compliance is going to leave business with third-party SaaS and Internet of </p><p>Things (Connected consumer electronics) vulnerable to attacks. </p></li></ul>
