Gartner said the ongoing pandemic and emergence of digital services are making the cloud the focus of new digital experiences.
Milind Joffkar, Gartner Senior Vice President, said:There is no business strategy without a cloud strategy. Adoption and interest in the public cloud continues unabated, as organizations implement a “cloud first” policy to integrate new workloads. The cloud has enabled new digital experiences, such as mobile payment systems where banks have invested in start-ups, energy companies using the cloud to improve retail experiences for their customers, or construction companies launching new personalization services for customer safety and media entertainment. “
In 2022, global cloud revenue is estimated at $474 billion, compared to $408 billion in 2021. Over the next few years, Gartner analysts estimate that cloud revenue will exceed non-cloud revenue for IT markets.
Gartner analysts discussed how the cloud will become the most pervasive approach to computing in the near future at the Gartner IT/Xpo EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) symposium:
The use of cloud-native technologies will be everywhere, and not only will it be popular.
According to Gartner analysts, by 2025 more than 85% of organizations will be “cloud first” and will not be able to fully implement their digital strategies without using “cloud-native” architectures and technologies.
“Certifying cloud-native platforms means that digital or product teams will use architectural principles and capabilities to take advantage of the capabilities that are inherent in the cloud environment.Joffkar said.New workloads deployed in the cloud-native environment will be ubiquitous, not just common, anything that is not in the cloud will be considered obsolete.. “
By 2025, Gartner estimates that more than 95% of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud-native platforms, up from 30% in 2021.
As the operating model evolves, the organization will shift to a product-centric operating model where the entire business and IT value stream will need to be aligned by product. This will create new roles and responsibilities, such as site reliability engineers, product managers or communities of practice.
Use of Low-Code and No-Code technologies will nearly triple by 2025
Application development will evolve towards application aggregation and integration. Requests will be compiled and authored by the teams that use them. “The technology and organizational silos for application development, automation, integration, and governance will become obsolete,” said Joffkar. “This will boost the emergence of Low Code Application Platforms (LCAPs) and citizen development.”
By 2025, 70% of new applications developed by organizations will use low-code or no-code technologies, compared to less than 25% in 2020. In particular the job of business technologists who come from outside IT departments and create technology or analytics capabilities for internal business use or external.
Connect anywhere with SASE (Secure Edge Access Service)
Cloud-delivered Secure Edge Access (SASE) service presents the fastest growing opportunity in the network and network security market. As the bulk of the traffic from branch offices and computing peripheral sites will not go to the corporate data center, CIOs and IT managers will increasingly use SASE to secure their data center needs. Anytime, anywhere access to users and devices.
Gartner estimates that in 2022, end-user spending on SASE will be $6.8 billion, up from $4.8 billion in 2021. Additionally, by 2025, more than 50% of organizations will have clear strategies for SASE adoption, up from less from 5% in 2020.
“Instead of sending all traffic to central security devices, CIOs and CIOs need to provide security for sessions, rather than bring sessions to security.Joffkar said.
