The year 2017 is marked by a great challenge: companies need to seek innovations in their businesses associated with cost reduction. It will be necessary to reinvent itself, break paradigms and launch or renew products to stay alive in the market.

At the same time, entrepreneurship is launching new prospects for products and services to the market, all integrated with the Internet and social networks, businesses that at first appear small, developed in the bedroom or in garages and in a short time provoke a revolution.

And cloud computing has become one of the main tools for this market change, see why.

We are in the second great wave of cloud computing

Amazon has already proven that the adoption of cloud computing solutions is consolidated. Today, few companies think of launching their products or services without using AWS as their main infrastructure (IaaS), software (SaaS) and platform (PaaS) resource.

The second wave refers to the common use of the cloud by both companies and customers; Let's look at some current Amazon customers as an example:

  • Netflix
  • Rede Globo
  • Coursera
  • Easy Taxi
  • Gol Linhas Aéreas
  • Universal Church
  • Nubank
  • Urban fish

As you can see in this short list of examples, we have several areas of activity – education, religion, services, entertainment, etc. And also notice that the users of these products and services do not even imagine that there is a cloud behind these companies, consolidated in the market or startups.

Cloud computing and technological innovations

Continuing to demonstrate how massive the use of the cloud will be in 2017, we have the latest technological innovations recently introduced to the market: Internet of Things (IoT), Big Data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics, biotechnology and machine learning.

All these technologies are using the high processing power, storage, security, high availability, scalability and many other features already consolidated in the cloud to get results in a short period of time.

The adoption of cloud computing is much more than a consolidation in the market, it is a reality. Today we have several operations considered to be mission critical and high risk services that are migrating to private or hybrid clouds, because we already have resources that guarantee high availability and minimize incidents related to security and failures.

Tools to assist with migration

In addition to all existing resources and the various success stories, new services and tools are being made available to facilitate the migration of the customer's existing structure to the cloud. A good example is the cloud migration solution offered by Sky.One .

Definitely 2017 will be the year that the adoption of cloud services will be very strong and therefore you should consider this resource as a strategy to be adopted this year.
