Cloud Predictions for Enterprise IT in 2012

By Jo Maitland, TechTarget's Search Cloud Computing

 

"Ask around and you’ll hear it over and over again: Enterprise IT shops are worried about using the cloud. They’re concerned about the security, privacy and governance risks of moving their data and applications outside their four walls. Cloud vendor lock-in and job security are also major worries for these guys, though few IT pros will admit to the latter.

 

Next year will be no different. But instead of keeping the cloud at arms’ length, which many enterprise IT shops have done this year, 2012 will be the year for taking the plunge.

 

If you’ve been sitting on the fence, here are some thoughts on what to expect next year that might push you over the edge.


The following are my predictions based on current trends and where I see them leading us. Just some observations; I have no crystal ball."

Gartner: 2012 Will Be the Year of Apocalyptic Reckoning for CIOs

Gartner: 2012 Will Be the Year of Apocalyptic Reckoning for CIOs | Analyst Insights: 2012 Cloud Computing Predictions & Trends | Scoop.it

Wired

 

"Gartner recently released its predictions for 2012, and in them the analyst firm latches on to a topic that has become a favorite here at Cloudline: the cloud-induced shift in enterprise IT from a traditional “procure, provision, and maintain” model to what I’ve called a more “maker”-centric model.

 

ZDNET’s Joe McKendrick has more color on this aspect of the report, and it gives context to the aforementioned posts. The key takeaway is that, thanks to the cloud, IT spending is increasingly no longer under the control of the IT department, so CIOs are going to find their roles and responsibilities greatly diminished (if not eliminated entirely) unless they can radically change everything about the IT function’s relationship to the enterprise."

Scoring Our 2011 Cloud Predictions | Forrester Blogs

By James Staten on November 14, 2011

 

"Around this time last year, Forrester published its predictions for what we expected to happen in the cloud computing market in 2011. While some of those prognostications were on the mark, in general we learned once again that markets move much slower than any of us would like.

 

It might be best to think of last year’s predictions as less about what would happen in a twelve month period and more about trends we identified that we felt would have lasting impact on the infrastructure & operations (I&O) professional and the market in general. Thus we felt progress was made along most of these lines."

2012 Dominated by Mobile, Cloud: IDC - info-mgmt.com

Dec. 1, 2011, Information Management

 

"Mobile devices and network capabilities will lead growth areas in IT and information management in 2012, with cloud services adoption and enablement not far behind, according to IDC’s annual market predictions.

 

Most of the 10 top expectations for the coming year carried over from trends IDC anticipated for 2011. But its predictions report, “Competing for 2020,” brought along a wide-angle view for 2012 and going forward through the next decade. Predictions were winnowed from contributions by about 1,000 IDC analysts in a range of fields covering IT, information management and mobile communications, and were reduced to 10 based on growth opportunity, industry-wide impact and structural disruption."

Gartner Reveals Top Predictions for IT Organizations and Users for 2012 and Beyond | Business Wire

Dec. 1, 2011, Business Wire

 

"Gartner, Inc. has revealed its top predictions for IT organizations and users for 2012 and beyond. ...

 

'The continued trends toward consumerization and cloud computing highlight the movement of certain former IT responsibilities into the hands of others,' said Daryl Plummer, managing vice president and Gartner fellow. 'As users take more control of the devices they will use, business managers are taking more control of the budgets IT organizations have watched shift over the last few years. As the world of IT moves forward, CIOs are finding that they must coordinate their activities in a much wider scope than they once controlled. While this might be a difficult prospect for IT departments, they must now adapt or be swept aside.' "

Top 10 Cloud Predictions For 2012: The Awkward Teenage Years Are Upon Us | Forrester Blogs

By James Staten on November 28, 2011

 

"As 2011 begins to wind down, we can look back on the progress made over the last 11 months with a lot of pride. The market stepped significantly forward with big gains in adoption by leaders Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Rackspace, significant growth in the use of clouds for big data, training, test and development, the creation of landmark new services and the dawning of the App-Internet era. Cloud technologies matured nearly across the board as did transparency, security and best practice use and adoption. But there’s much more growth ahead as the cloud is no longer a toddler but has entered the awkward teenage years. And much as found in human development the cloud is now beginning to fight for its own identity, independence and place in society.

 

The next few years will be a painful period of rebellion, defiance, exploration, experimentation and undoubtedly explosive creativity. While many of us would prefer our kids go from the cute pre-teen period straight to adulthood, we don’t become who we are without surviving the teenage years. For infrastructure & operations professionals, charged with bringing predictability to our company’s use of IT, this coming era of cloud computing will push us well outside of our comfort zone. ..."
