2015 Forecast: The Sun is Out for Cloud Computing

2015 Forecast: The Sun is Out for Cloud Computing | L'Univers du Cloud Computing dans le Monde et Ailleurs | Scoop.it
The cloud space continues to evolve at an astounding pace. As recently as 12 months ago, we were still educating many clients about what they could achieve with cloud computing. We tirelessly explained the differences and benefits of options such as Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). We also debated the suitability of various architectural alternatives, like private, public or hybrid cloud. While there continues to be some mystique Topic: Information Management.

X as a service (XaaS): What the future of cloud computing will bring

X as a service (XaaS): What the future of cloud computing will bring | L'Univers du Cloud Computing dans le Monde et Ailleurs | Scoop.it

What is XaaS? Is this just more marketing fluff? Why do we need to define yet another model to fully describe cloud services? I contest that XaaS is a legitimate term, and that it is useful to describe a new type of cloud services — those that make use of IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS all neatly delivered in one package. Such packages are intended to fully displace the delivery of a commodity IT service.

As well as lower costs, business agility, flexibility and ease of use are still the main attractions for using the cloud. European Commission research, which questioned almost 500 companies, showed that over 80 per cent of those who were already using the cloud, saw a reduction in IT costs of between 10 and 20 per cent. 12 per cent saw an impressive 30 per cent or more reduction.

Le cloud computing est bien plus qu’une simple technologie, il s’agit d’une véritable révolution qui touche tous les services informatiques. Certes, nous avons déjà décrit ce phénomène maintes fois sur ce blog, dont les premiers articles remontent déjà à il y a 5 ans ! Mais le niveau de maturité est tel qu’aujourd’hui, ce sont les DSI eux-mêmes qui mettent en avant ce changement de paradigme.
Comme à chaque révolution informatique, c’est la même constatation, celle que les organisations humaines sont fortement impactées par ces changements quand ils sont réels, et que les aspects humains de conduite du changement priment sur tout. Ce n’est pas une découverte pour beaucoup d’entre nous, mais ce qui est signe de changement, c’est ce renouveau du dialogue entre les DSI et les utilisateurs, qui ne peut qu’être salué comme une énorme avancée.

Insurers can achieve business flexibility through a traditional non-cloud-based transition. Insurers are likely to spend millions of dollars upfront on on-premise hardware for the new infrastructure. Then, they must work around application development, which can turn into a lengthy customization and implementation process.
