Cloud networking is a mainstream business essential whether in private, public or hybrid deployment models. Gartner’s recent Forecast Analysis: Public Cloud Services, Worldwide, 1Q21 Update (June 3, 2021) affirms that “Cloud adoption underpins organizations’ ambitions to create a hybrid workplace that balances employees’ needs with business success and provides a flexible but consistent workplace in any location. Supporting the hybrid workforce model demands remote connectivity, increased scalability and improved elasticity, and it is driving organizations to accelerate cloud adoption and migrate off legacy infrastructure.”
Cloud adoption is further substantiated in a recent Accenture Insights article, 25 Cloud Trends for 2021 and Beyond (March 4, 2021). Roy Ikink, Managing Director of Accenture Strategy and Consulting, Utilities Transmission and Distribution, notes that “data is currency…” as he underscores the importance of leveraging an organization’s data to its cloud capabilities. Citing a 2020 IDG Cloud Computing Survey (June 8, 2020), Ikink observes that 92% of organizations operate at least partially in the cloud. Accordingly, he offers an exhaustive list of cloud trends for 2021 and beyond including Edge Computing, Multi-Cloud, Hybrid Cloud, Public Cloud, Private Cloud, Cloud Automation, Cloud Security and Containerization.
