The ongoing pandemic and the rise of digital services are making the cloud the center of new digital experiences, says Gartner, Inc.
Milind Govekar, Distinguished Vice President at Gartner said: “There is no business strategy without a cloud strategy. The adoption and interest in the public cloud continues unabated, with businesses applying a “cloud first” policy for aggregating new workloads. The cloud has enabled new digital experiences, such as mobile payment systems where banks have invested in startups, energy companies that use the cloud to enhance retail experiences for their customers, or vehicle builders launching new personalization services for customer safety and infotainment. “
In 2022, global cloud revenue is estimated at $ 474 billion, up from $ 408 billion in 2021. Over the next few years, Gartner analysts estimate that cloud revenue will exceed non -cloud revenue for enterprise IT markets. concerned.
Gartner analysts discussed how the cloud will become the most prevalent computing style in the near future at the Gartner IT Symposium/Xpo EMEA (Europe Middle East and Africa):
The use of cloud-native technologies will be ubiquitous, not just popular.
According to Gartner analysts, more than 85% of businesses will adopt the “cloud first” principle by 2025 and will not be able to fully implement their digital strategies without using “cloud native” architectures and technologies.
“Adopting cloud-native platforms means that digital or product teams will use architectural principles and capabilities to take advantage of the inherent capabilities of the cloud environment.“, said Govekar.”New workloads deployed in a cloud-native environment will be ubiquitous, not just popular, and anything non-cloud will be considered legacy.. “
By 2025, Gartner estimates that more than 95% of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud-native platforms, up from 30% in 2021.
As the operating model evolves, the organization will move to a product-centric operating model where the entire business and IT value stream needs to be aligned by product. This will create new roles and responsibilities, such as site reliability engineers, product managers, or training communities.
The use of “Low-Code” and “No-Code” technologies will nearly triple by 2025
Developing applications will evolve towards assembly and aggregation of applications. Applications will be developed and developed by the teams that use them. “The technological and organizational silos of application development, automation, integration and management will become obsolete,” Govekar said. “This will promote the rise of low-code application platforms (LCAPs) and citizen development.”
By 2025, 70% of new applications developed by organizations will use low-code or no-code technologies, compared to less than 25% by 2020. The rise of low-code application platforms (LCAPs) will driving increasing citizen development, and specifically the role of business technologists who come from outside IT departments and create technological or analytical capacity for internal or external commercial use.
Connect Anywhere with SASE (Secured Edge Access Service)
The Cloud-delivered Secure Edge Access (SASE) service presents the fastest growing opportunity in the networking and network security market. Since most traffic from branch offices and edge computing sites will not go to a corporate data center, CIOs and IT managers will increasingly use SASE to secure data center needs. anytime, anywhere access to users and devices.
Gartner estimates that by 2022, end-user SASE spending will be $ 6.8 billion, up from $ 4.8 billion in 2021. Additionally, by 2025, more than 50% of organizations will have explicit strategies to use SASE, from less than 5% in 2020.
“Instead of sending all traffic to central security appliances, CIOs and IT managers need to bring security to the sessions, rather than bring security sessions.“, said Govekar.
