When we look at the future today, no one can certainly, witness what new major disruptions will knock when and why. However, one thing we can ascertain from the last two years' learnings is—the cloud is the future of today, tomorrow, and beyond. It will accelerate beyond the traditional centralized infrastructure model and into unexpected environments where specialized technology is pivotal.
The cloud will be in your TV, car, and tea kettle. It will be in everything—be you talking about a truck driving on the road or a ship sailing into the ocean to transport goods? You will witness it globally as it will be in every digital system or device.
The reason is cloud adoption is growing year after year. By 2025, 85% of organizations will embrace a cloud-first principle, and over 95% of new digital workloads will get deployed on cloud-native platforms. The industry-wide study also seconds this fact. As we continue our journey in this hyperconnected world, businesses need the cloud to survive and thrive. More than ever, to operate, compete, and create value. In short, the lift and shift to the cloud from legacy IT infrastructure is the moment of truth.
The Future of Cloud 2023 is a step in that very direction. This summit showcases why the cloud is the business reality to enable responsiveness, scalability, security, and resiliency. It also uncovers why the cloud is no more a technology enabler but a business innovator. How is it helping businesses to thrive?
