Skuid’s chief technology officer (CTO), Mike Duensing, was quoted today in an article by Beta News, “Challenging costs and greater portability, 2018 cloud predictions.” The article focuses on growing reliance on the cloud, and how that will affect enterprises in 2018.
Duensing talked about how the growth of the cloud represents unprecedented opportunities for enterprises to innovate in new ways, and save money while they’re at it.
While a significant percentage of enterprise apps have moved to the cloud, the next phase will be to rethink what is possible with the myriad of services not previously available on-premise. This will enable a new generation of solutions built with rapid implementation platforms that create levels of business value never seen before. Given that companies are spending over $3.5 trillion on IT and have an average of 831 cloud services, in 2018 organizations will consolidate and recreate the cloud, so that it provides a more cost-effective and engaging user experience.
