Keep these 3 “urgent truths” in mind when considering your mobile cloud computing in 2016

We’ve heard the mantra many times over; the “Mobile first, Cloud first” strategy that Microsoft has been following has proven to be a success time and time again.  Microsoft’s development of cloud computing is reaching all time highs as more organization, businesses, and customers pick up the streamlined services. As an Office Blogs post released today shared, the global spending on Infrastructure as a Service is expected to reach $16.5 billion this year. That’s only a fraction of the estimated $67 billion revenue, a number that Forbes says will be achievable by the year 2018.

Microsoft’s development of cloud computing is reaching all time highs as more organization, businesses, and customers pick up the streamlined services. According to the Office team, the global spending on Infrastructure as a Service is expected to reach $16.5 billion this year. That’s only a fraction of the estimated $67 billion revenue, a number that Forbes says will be achievable by the year 2018.

In recognition of the exponential growth of cloud computing, Microsoft felt it was their duty to share a top three list of important facts.

  1. There are hybrid cloud solutions for using both a datacenter and a private cloud.
  2. The Internet of Things is directly relevant to the use of cloud-based services.
  3. Cloud-native apps are an efficient and productive investment.

The reliance on cloud-based services is bringing opportunities to more companies. Private cloud adoptions has gone up from 63% to 77%. More impressive is the estimated 22 billion IoT devices expected to be connected to the cloud by 2018.

Microsoft continues to ride on Amazon’s tail as the top IaaS, but only by an easily surmountable 4% in some reports. As cloud computing becomes standard across most commercial businesses, it will be interesting to see the race Microsoft and their competitors have as they snatch up the remaining potential clients. If there’s one thing to take away from the list, it’s that the ‘Invisible Revolution’ is on its way. Cloud technologies continue to make reaching customers and increasing production easier for the commercial industry. Businesses and organizations without access to cloud computing solutions are bound to find themselves left behind in the dust.
