As per a study by Forbes, cloud computing is projected to increase from $67B in 2015 to $162B in 2020 attaining a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 19%. This comes as no surprise because cloud computing throws open a myriad of opportunities and possibilities for enterprises. From business applications, collaboration to analytics tools, cloud computing has been able to help many struggling companies and enterprises succeed by making their path clear for business innovation. Moreover by moving to the cloud, these companies and enterprises have been freed from the burden of legacy applications as well as the capital expenditure involved in the procuring, upgrading and maintenance of various technology systems and applications. However, whatever benefits or advantages that have been obtained from cloud services in UAE so far is just the tip of the iceberg.
Today the cloud computing is getting bigger day by day. As it grows and expands, the cloud is becoming more and more intelligent. The intelligent cloud now unleashes more innovative concepts that add new dimensions to competitiveness. These intelligent cloud solutions in Dubai include Internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence and machine learning. This combined with intelligent technologies and digital business services would definitely make the cloud a force to reckon with. Thus, from being an emerging technology, the cloud has become within a short period of time a ubiquitous solution. Gartner has explained this transformation of cloud computing by terming it as being in the ‘slope of enlightenment’ phase. This means that cloud computing is now ready to be adopted into the mainstream.
Considering the potential of the cloud, B2B and B2C companies, who have not yet moved to the cloud, must make quick decisions with respect to cloud migration in Dubai. However, it is not as easy as it sounds as there are several cloud migration Dubai options such as lift-and -shift, re-factor and re-platform. Moreover, there is the need to perform accurate assessment of various applications in order to gauge their complexity and business value. Thus, those with low complexity and low business value being obsolete must be retired at once.
Seeking the help of experienced cloud service providers in Dubai is a must when it comes to cloud adoption. But taking decision is a bit difficult not just because of the availability of different migration options but also because of the presence of different vendors. Having the support of a service provider who offers azure cloud services in UAE and AWS cloud consulting and maintenance in Dubai definitely helps eliminate uncertainties and indecisions. Being aware of the latest that the cloud has to offer, they can help the companies and enterprises to develop a robust migration plan that meets the short term and long term business objectives of the companies as well as enterprises.
