Services from the Omniscient, Omnipresent Cloud
Technology continues to advance in ways that human beings at one time thought impossible, later thought only possible in our imaginations and in the pages and on the screens of science fiction adventures, and only relatively recently have these ideas been considered possibilities in the real world. By now, anything that a person can dream up could conceivably become a reality, a realization that can be overwhelming at times, but for the most part, incredibly exciting. And one part of this exciting, developing, digital world is the cloud. With this new element, many new jobs, responsibilities, and services have been created to supply the demand, not the least of which include cloud consultants, cloud communications, and cloud brokerage services.
Breaking into the world of cloud services brokers
When a consultant of cloud services brokers a deal between the providers of the cloud and the businesses looking to make the most of the opportunities the cloud provides, he or she helps to facilitate invaluable connections. One research has shown that 35% of information technology, or IT, services are delivered wholly and sometimes partially by the cloud, and that percentage continues to grow. The current projection for cloud equipment for the global market will be up to $79.1 billion by the year 2018. Meanwhile, the market for cloud based security services is climbing steadily, and expected to hit $8.71 billion by 2019. The money is talking, and it is talking about the cloud. Those who choose a profession relating to the cloud and are helping to get its services to the people who need it are right in the middle of one of the largest developing markets of our current society.
Cloud services brokers rising to the demand
At this point, it is difficult to go anywhere or be a part of any business that does not in some way use the cloud. It helps to connect everyone quickly and help everyone to stay informed and up to speed on projects, developments, and vital information being shared throughout the company. There are many different uses that companies can use the cloud for. Of large enterprises, 59% implement cloud storage due to the fact that it improves integration between development and operations. The public cloud is used by 60% of companies, while 57% of users prefer the private cloud, and 19% are using a hybrid of cloud services. One thing is certain, as technology continues to develop, and more and more of our lives become digital, we are going to need more storage than what many of our current devices can supply. Not only that, but using the cloud makes everything more connected and easier to access, so you can spend less time worrying about all those different places you could have left what you’re looking for. Chances are, it can be stored and quickly accessed by way of the cloud.
The cloud provides a vital service in this digital age, and with the way that technology has been progressing in the recent years, the cloud will only become more efficient, reliable and invaluable.
