Cloud computing is expected to be a part of all business IT by 2020; however, it faces several key challenges that need to be tackled before it becomes omnipresent.
Cloud computing service providers provide capabilities based on various models such as: infrastructure as a service (IaaS), platform as a service (PaaS) – including specific forms of PaaS such as integration platform as a service, blockchain as a service (BaaS), software as a service (SaaS), mobile backend as a service (mBaaS).
Below is a compilation of 5 major challenges that can strangle the growth of cloud computing.
Researchers in cybersecurity are even more worried about the new protection in the cloud. Roughly 90 percent of security professionals are concerned about cloud security, according to a survey in 2019. Much more importantly, we are even worried about confidentiality data loss and leakage, hacks, and data privacy.
Since cutting back on remote access and remote archiving is usually not a feasible option for organizations, it will continue to be of paramount importance to protect device connections to the network and will become more challenging.
Because of these challenges, all companies will need to make use of professional expertise in software consulting and support, as well as operations-and mobility-based specialists to allow businesses to reach the required level of safety.
Based on a market survey, the lack of skilled resources was classified as a challenge by nearly 75% of the respondent, with 23% claiming it was a significant challenge.
While many of the IT staff have taken various steps to improve their knowledge in potential cloud computing forecasts, companies continue to find it challenging to find the skills they need to find workers. And it seems likely that even future cloud computing trends will continue.
One of the most significant advantages of cloud computing in 2020–the speed and ease of deployment of new computing resources–can be so much potential downturn. Many of the organizations lack visibility in their employees ' "shadow IT" and governance in hybrid cloud and multi-cloud environments according to the challenges.
Some of the experts reported that some of these cloud computing management issues were alleviated by the organizations calling through the following best practices, including compliance and policy-making. And multiple companies offer technology for cloud management to simplify and automate the operation.
Nowadays, most organizations are not only working on one cloud. According to a survey, about 89 percent of companies follow a multi-cloud strategy, and 52 percent adopt a hybrid cloud strategy that is mixed together with the private and public cloud. Also, five separate private and public clouds are used by businesses.
A long-term forecast for the future of cloud computing provides the IT infrastructure teams with much more complexity. To address this challenge, experts also suggest best practices such as training staff, rethinking procedures, conducting research, actively managing supplier relationships, and tooling.
The recent flurry of cloud computing risk activity with the General Data Protection Regulation has now returned to the forefront for many of the organization's IT teams in accordance with compliance.
Also, one aspect of the GDPR law may, in the near future, make many compliances more comfortable. Even many organizations are required by law to appoint a data protection officer to oversee data security and privacy. Assuming that most of these people are well versed in the compliance needs of the organizations where they work, centralizing compliance responsibilities should even help companies to fulfill any legal obligations.
