Technology & Business Transformation
Technology and business have always been closely linked, and as we move into 2018 and beyond, the strength between the two will only continue to grow. The influence technology has on positive business growth is evident, and as technology continues to improve, that growth can be further harnessed and tailored to the particular industry your business is in.
The following are some technological trends that businesses should be mindful of.
‘The Multi-Cloud World
Different customers and business units each have different needs. Should they all be using the same cloud providers and platforms? So far the answer is no. We are seeing teams across business independently choosing different cloud platforms and providers to best suit their individual needs. Enterprises can accept this—but only if they can exert more control by formulating explicit multi-cloud strategies to best leverage and coordinate multiple cloud providers.
Machine learning is the science of getting computers to find hidden insights without explicitly being told how to do so. In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, sophisticated speech recognition and a better understanding of the human genome. The next step will be demystifying big data on legacy database platforms such as SQL and Oracle, but even more so on off-premises clouds, as IT teams seek to leverage higher performance, on-demand storage systems.
The Rise of “Serverless” Architecture
The term “serverless architecture” is a bit of a misnomer—obviously there will always be physical hardware beneath all the layers of virtualization and abstraction—but the trend itself is very real. Serverless compute refers to services like Amazon Web Services Lambda and Microsoft Azure Functions that allow you to run code without provisioning or managing servers. The ease of use and cost-efficient pricing models of these services will accelerate development cycles and enable the Internet of Things (IoT) market to grow even faster.’ (source: searchcio.techtarget.com)
