We asked our in-house Flexiant cloud experts what they expect to see from cloud computing in 2016. Here are some of our thoughts.
1. Containers become mainstream
In 2016, enterprises will embrace containers and start shifting production workloads onto them. They’ll also start more projects to “containerize” their legacy apps with similar enthusiasm as when they visualized their legacy apps from bare metal.
As we all celebrated the beginning of 2016, many of us made New Year’s resolutions – lose weight, get organized, spend less, save more, enjoy life, stay fit. As I get back into the swing of things today, I started to think about the New Year’s resolutions you might make a work, and particularly related to Infrastructure as a Service – and the impact it may have on telcos and service providers.
As we begin 2016, how many organizations are taking a step back to look at their infrastructure and decide if this is the year to move to the cloud, is a hybrid approach best, is a multi-cloud approach better? This review of resources marks an opportunity for growth, or, for many telcos and service providers, the reality of lost customers.
As you take some time to enjoy your friends and family this holiday season, I wanted to take a minute to wish you a fruitful and happy holiday season from all of us at Flexiant.
As I reflect back on 2015, it was a busy year for Flexiant. We continued to develop innovative software with new releases of Flexiant Cloud Orchestrator and Flexiant Concerto, we helped many telecom operators overcome their cloud challenges and helped service providers get to the cloud quickly. We did this all while continuing our mission to focus 100% on helping telcom operators and service providers’ increase profit, revenue and growth from cloud services.
2015 is almost a wrap. With the year coming to a quick conclusion, we are looking back at the best resources of 2015. Here is our top five of 2015:
1. What Every Telecom Operator Should Know about the Cloud
Declining revenues, economic challenges, technology transformation and price competition are all contributors to the rapidly changing telecom industry alongside the evolving requirements of customers. As telecom operators look to transform to overcome these challenges, the cloud has become ever more important.
Just yesterday, North Bridge released its fifth annual Future of Cloud Computing Survey which investigates trends in corporate cloud use on a yearly basis. The results this year highlight record levels of corporate adoption of cloud computing, for business users as well as IT, in areas such as web content management and application development in the cloud. IT teams are finally jumping on board, seeing a surprising level of cloud adoption this year, seizing back the reins on the technology strategy of their companies. From the bottom to the top, digital technologies delivered from the cloud are increasingly becoming differentiating factors for more businesses.
