In 2021, people will feel more confident moving their data to the cloud. Cloud-forward data movement solutions will become much more comfortable using the cloud and by 2025, 49% of all data will be in cloud-based infrastructure. Hence, our first prediction is that the fear of the cloud will evaporate in 2021. This will be joined by other trends that will accelerate in the coming twelve months.
Artificial intelligence will automatically unify data and data-driven automation for AI operations will become central to IT strategies. Next-generation data migration to and from the cloud will integrate with an AI workflow which will move data from edge environments to the core. As the data comes in, it will be tagged. The technology will be deployed in differing environments: manufacturing, autonomous vehicles, smart cities, scientific research/data gathering, the IoT space, etc.
Time, money and risk
In the wake of COVID-19, enabling remote work has required IT teams to rapidly lean into cloud technologies to keep their businesses operating smoothly. Migrations will continue to be complicated and since time, money and risk will continue to play an ever-important role in data movement, customers will be looking to providers to offer them intelligent services and active archive applications that leverage the cloud. With this change, the fear of the cloud will evaporate. In fact, according to Forbes, by 2025, 49% of the world’s stored data will reside in public cloud environments.
Organisations will look to move data according to the intelligence they receive from operational or situational intelligence. Migrations will continue to be complicated and customers will be looking to providers to offer them intelligent services and applications.
Intelligently tagging the data and preparing it for AI, M&E, smart cities, and scientific use will remain a trend for the next 2 to 3 years.
