Cloud computing is the next “big thing.” Cloud computing is the storing and accessing of data and programs through the internet, rather than through physical means such as hard drives. Basically, the cloud is just a fancy term for services accessed over the internet. Forbes Magazine stated that, “55% of enterprises predict cloud computing will enable new business models in three years.” With that being said, it is expected that a large amount of enterprises will be making moderate-to-heavy cloud investments in the near future as they transition into full reliance on cloud technologies. Many are depending on the cloud to launch new business models, help streamline their supply chains, and provide applications and platforms to better manage and analyze data.
An Oxford Economics and SAP study of cloud computing generated key points that were found by comparing a recent survey to one conducted a few years ago. Forbes Magazine shared these points, some of which include:
- Top-line growth, collaboration among employees, and supply chain are the three areas enterprises expect cloud computing to impact most in three years.
- Developing new products and services, new lines of business and entering new markets are three key areas in which cloud computing is transforming enterprises.
- 58% of enterprises predict their use of cloud computing will increase top-line revenue growth in three years.
- 67% of enterprises say that marketing, purchasing, and supply chain are somewhat and mostly cloud-based as of today.
47% of MARKETING departments will have 60% or more of their applications on a cloud platform in two years. When asked which value added reseller (VAR) is most likely to win their enterprises’ business for a significant hosting projects, the majority said IBM (18%) followed by Microsoft (11%), Amazon (8%) and Dell (7%).
Scope of B-tech with cloud Computing
Cloud computing is a tremendous innovation in the digital landscape that has changed the way IT solutions are delivered and how end-users put them to use. The cloud computing space is growing and will continue to do so.
It is no question that as the cloud market continues to expand in India, so will the number of job prospects. It is estimated this year alone cloud computing will create over 2 million jobs. It is believed that players like TCS, Infosys, HCL and Tech Mahindra will bid for cloud computing service providers rather than developing solutions through their in-house research, as it requires huge funding. The competition among Indian service providers will have a telling effect on the pricing of solutions. In short, the scope for cloud computing and its successful applications in Indian companies are bound to go up.
In the modern technology era cloud computing creates enormous opportunities in the field of various sectors, which includes cloud Architects, cloud administrator, cloud security specialists etc.
