Fremont, CA: The year 2019 has been much eventful from technological advancements' point of view. Cloud computing has traveled too far in the year 2019 as well. There were many cloud computing trends that remained the rated topics of discussions last year. Let's look back at some of those trends that captured the attention of enterprise IT teams in 2019.
Slow Cloud Migration
The operational complexity of the public cloud has been one of the topics of discussion among the IT teams in 2019. Difficulties arise out from dozens of decoupled cloud development teams using plenty of services at the application level. The applications and data sets are then pushed to production, all using diverse cloud technologies and local services. Operational teams may not manage this complex and heterogeneous cloud environment, with the existing staff and technology. This makes enterprises more susceptible to breaches and thus has slowed down cloud adoption and migration altogether.
Shortage of Cloud Skills
Another trend that shaped in 2019 is a continued skills shortage for cloud-related jobs. The demand for qualified cloud technical jobs outpaced the supply of qualified candidates. An analysis of job postings by LinkedIn found that most in-demand skills were in the area of cloud computing. Most of the skills, including those coupled with cloud architect and DevOps engineer roles, are lacking among the workforce. Even after offering lucrative salary, most of the cloud-related positions go unfilled. To tackle this issue and close the cloud skills gap, some organizations have started internal "boot camp" training programs, or some of them have outsourced a third party to deliver both on-site and online training at scale.
Edge computing technology, though initially associated with IoT devices, took new dimensions in the year 2019. Unlike traditional hybrid cloud, where different products were used for different cloud infrastructures, enterprises now have the option to easily move cloud-native workloads between public and private infrastructure with hybrid products like AWS Outposts, Azure Stack, and Google Anthos. This simplifies cloud management processes and makes migration between public and private infrastructures easy. This flexibility can reduce costs and boost performance, potentially. Moreover, edge computing, in such cases, can settle IT leaders who are uncomfortable hosting workloads and data sets on public clouds.
