CIOs’ Attention: Four Trends In Cloud Computing In 2019

When the mission of CIO keeps on becoming increasingly vital to enterprises' overall objectives and goals, this catalyst for the transformation must work harder to adapt to these changing responsibilities and deliver the best IT solutions.


As the futuristic technology products are believed to be able to make the world a better place, digital business is receiving a transformation from the digital industrial economy. For that reason, the enterprise leaders’ overall objectives and goals increasingly relate to information and technology decisions. As a result, the office of the CIO (OCIO) - an executive position to expand as IT strategy of a company is expected to work harder to meet the meets of employees, customers, and partners.

Let’s take a closer insight into four trends CIO to prepare for 2019 to balance the capabilities of the latest cloud technology and resources while still keeping the security at its best:

1. The Number Of Cloud as Services Models And Solutions (SaaS, Paas, IaaS) Will Continue To Rise And Come Into The Enterprise Through "The Bathroom Window"

SaaS, Paas, IaaS
While CIOs, in the mid-1980s, devoted all the time and energy on the more technical projects, they now find themselves in transition to make the digital era IT become as easily consumable as power out of a socket.
  • Subscription-based software-as-a-service (SaaS): With very few downsides and a lot of upsides, SaaS is gradually becoming part of the mainstream. According to Bain & Company, this software’s popularity is only increasing. It is expected to be growing at an 18% CAGR by 2020.
  • Investment in platform-as-a-service (PaaS): A set of cloud-based services that bring tremendous power and productivity to IT departments, business users, and developers at a higher speed than on-premise solutions. According to KPMG, this type of cloud computing is expected to reach 56% in 2019. A growth of 24% from 32% in 2016 makes it the fastest-growing development battleground of tomorrow.
  • The infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) - a powerful, flexible option helps enterprises focus on their core competency. According to Gartner, its worldwide market’s explosion is predicted to reach $72.4 billion by 2020.

2. Breakthrough In Quantum Computing -- The Holy Grail For Global Technology Giants

Quantum Computing
With the ability to run calculations far beyond the reach of any conventional supercomputer and create breakthroughs in some of the most complicated data processing problems, quantum computing deserves its title as the holy grail of cloud computing industry.

Nowadays, IBM - an industry-first initiative to build commercially available universal quantum computers for business and science together with other classical computing companies including Intel, Alphabet Inc.’s Google, and Microsoft as well as a bunch of Quantum computing startups like 1Qbit, Alpine Quantum Technologies, GmbH, Anyon Systems Inc., Artiste-qb.net, Atom Computing, BOHR∞, Black Brane Systems, bra-ket science, etc. is in the severe competition of taking a claim in the emerging field of quantum computing.

The race for cloud supremacy has started, and the quantum computing market is getting bigger and bigger. However, IBM with its 50 years of experience in producing advances in materials science that laid the foundations for the computer revolution is always the leader.

The release of quantum computing with a 50-qubit processor prototype, as well as 20-qubit processor online access – the world’s fastest cloud computing is the most visible evidence about the potential of IBM. In spite of IBM’s pedigree in this area, other top-tech giants are still showing their continuous effort to deliver on the technology's long-promised abilities. Alibaba’s 11-qubit quantum computing service launching and Microsoft announcement of a new quantum computing programming language and stable topological qubit technology show their strong will to lead to greater quantum computing innovation.

3. More Businesses Options For Hybrid Cloud Solutions —  Cloud to Cloud and Cloud to On-Premise Connectivity

Hybrid Cloud Solutions
The demands of the Internet of Things (IoT) on infrastructure – especially around reliability, backup and/or disaster recovery, challenges of cloud connectivity, and computing power can be dealt by the cloud technologies. Public, private, and hybrid are different types of clouds available with the rise of new technologies.

It might not as easy as you have expected to make a full transition to the cloud. That’s where hybrid cloud solutions with its two types of clouds: public and private cloud will play its crucial role.

Due to the hybrid cloud’s advantages that allow all enterprises to transition to the cloud at their own pace, with fewer chances of risk, and with a smaller expense, it is predicted that in 2019, most companies will keep their on-premise solutions as well as connect to the efficiency and effectiveness of cloud-based solutions with heavy customization that will best fit their business needs.

4. Cloud Security Vulnerabilities Will Still Be A Concern

Security is always a concern with cloud technology in any organization in today’s IOT world
Needless to say, security was, is, and will undoubtedly be a concern with cloud technology in any organization in today’s IOT world. Don’t expect cloud security to be exceptional, particularly with the introduction of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Those whose duty is to truly drive the thinking, and resulting strategy, on what to do with all that data will face more challenges than ever before to become more competitive in this ever-changing tech environment.

Through 2020, in spite of all of the hand-wringing over cloud security, 99% of successful cyber attack or vulnerabilities exploited will be able to break into the public Internet and bring IT operations (or related) to a standstill for such a long time.
