The cloud computing industry has witnessed massive growth over the past few years, with organizations rapidly switching over from on-premise settings. With multiple advantages on offer such as security, flexibility, cost savings, and mobility, among many others, the industry is expected to march ahead at a rapid pace

The global cloud computing market size is projected to reach USD 765.6 billion by 2027, advancing at a CAGR of 14.9% over this period, as per a study by Grand View Research, Inc. The cloud-based business models have been identified by organizations as a secure and cost-effective way to optimize their business model, thus driving revenue growth, which is the primary factor driving market growth. Furthermore, the boost in functional capabilities as well as the substantial increase in the number of small and medium enterprises are other key factors that are positively impacting the market.

The integration of big data is expected to play a decisive role in moving the industry ahead. Incapability of the traditional data warehouses to manage and analyze the volume, velocity, variety, and veracity of big data will be addressed by cloud computing technology. Moreover, economies of scale offered by the platform will allow privacy and security to be managed more efficiently. The introduction of the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) concept in IT organizations is expected to solidify the importance of cloud computing in enabling professionals to have access to critical data anytime and anywhere. The importance of cloud computing is reflected in the 2020 Cloud Computing Study results released by IDG (International Data Group), wherein 92% of organizations reported that they have migrated to cloud solutions in some capacity, with only 8% stating that their IT environment is completely on-premises.
