Looking ahead to , organizations will likely focus on shifting their cloud strategies from the low-end infrastructure-as-a-service IaaS opportunity to instead extracting valuable data from their business processes; integrating data across the enterprise and with external data sets; and applying new, innovative services such as AI, blockchain and analytics to that data. Organizations will need hybrid and multicloud environments comprised of the right tools and infrastructure to help get their jobs done more efficiently.
At IBM, we believe the following cloud trends will gain momentum as enterprises continue into the next phase of their cloud journey. According to research from Ovum , while 20 percent of business processes have already moved to the cloud, 80 percent of mission-critical workloads and sensitive data are still running on-premises because of performance and regulatory requirements.
Not every workload is a candidate for the public cloud. Businesses will increasingly drive value from the integration of public and private clouds as they seek to get the most out of their cloud investments by taking a hybrid multicloud approach. A hybrid multicloud environment uses a combination of on-premises, private cloud and public cloud architecture, with best-in-class resources from different cloud vendors. Most major companies have already embraced the concept of open source to help them avoid lock-in and allow them to choose from more vendors.
We believe open technology enables interoperability of applications, platforms and data. We believe open technology projects developed in communities committed to open governance tend to attract the largest ecosystems and most expansive markets.
In the coming year, we predict the more advanced companies will identify new opportunities for containers, using open source Kubernetes to arrange them into clusters that support microservices across multiple clouds. Open management tools will be essential to administering, securing and updating those clusters over time.
As organizations embrace a hybrid multicloud approach, IT organizations will undergo a culture shift in the way that they work. They will need teams equipped with new skillsets, such as cross-platform tool and automation experience, and knowledge of API management and data integration best practices.
