The start of 2020 marks a new day, a new year, a new decade and new cloud computing trends. Consequently, we’ve even freshened up our logo to mark the occasion! As we all ponder our own resolutions and growth in both our professional and personal lives, the IT industry is also growing at unprecedented rates in the cloud computing community. 

We love to have our pulse on the latest and greatest upcoming cloud computing trends. Most importantly, it’s what inspires the team at VEXXHOST to keep developing and innovating. In other words, from digital natives taking our world by storm to the rise of network automation through artificial intelligence and machine learning- we have you covered. 

Excited to take a deep dive into the freshest cloud computing trends of 2020? Let’s begin.

1. Digital Natives Will Continue Influence Cloud Computing Trends

Today the majority of newcomers bursting on the scene of the modern-day workforce will have some basic knowledge of the cloud and other growing technologies. Meaning that digital natives are changing the way in which we communicate, work and grow as a cloud community. For example, they prefer using WhatsApp to phone calls and Twitter to email. 

Meanwhile, one of the biggest challenges will be integrating digital natives with older members of the workforce. Use these new team members as an asset to grow with social media tools and modern communication. As a result, these technological advances will help integrate everyone into a stronger workforce. Above all, a robust community creates the perfect environment for innovations in cloud computing.

2. Artificial Intelligence Is Getting Smarter

Saying that AI is getting smarter may sound like a simple statement but it couldn’t be truer. Innovations in AI are giving organizations the opportunity to automate and manage their processes with better speed and accuracy. 

Likewise, core competencies within AI like machine learning, system recognition, and intelligent robotics are giving organizations the chance to scale up and manage big data in the most efficient way possible.

3. The Popularity Of Containers Continues To Grow

Containers are a popular choice amongst developers thanks to the ease in which they can manage and move code.  As a result, the next decade will continue to see the popularity of containers grow. 

Firstly, Kubernetes was one of the hot trends of 2019 and the open-source platform will continue to manage applications built out in multiple self-contained runtimes. Additionally, Kubernetes has become the go-to for container orchestration and this disruption in the industry continues to push innovation for application developers in 2020. 

4. Mobile Cloud Computing As An Upcoming Cloud Computing Trend 

MCC describes how mobile applications are built, operated and hosted with cloud computing technology. Similarly, this new innovation will only continue to grow throughout 2020 and will enable quality mobile applications to work across a number of mobile devices with a strong focus on user experience. 

As far as innovations in cloud computing technology go, MCC is a big one. Certainly, through a combination of mobile computing, cloud computing, and wireless networks it can create a lasting impression on users.

5. Network Automation Through Machine Learning

Organizations will be putting a stronger emphasis on network automation through AI and its subset, Machine Learning, in 2020. For instance, IT Service Management and business operations will be working to accommodate this hot trend. Moreover, from optimizing the consumption of power through automated tasks to advanced cybersecurity, the result of these innovations will create a larger networking space as more case studies arise. 

To sum up, there’s a lot to look forward to in the cloud computing community this year. We’re looking forward to continuing to grow our services and new innovations and opportunities to come.
