Citrix Application Performance Management
Symform, a revolutionary, distributed cloud backup service, recently predicted that the combined forces of digital data growth and the consumerization of IT will come to a head in 2013 and create a wave of increased investment and moves by IT to take back control of corporate data.
Companies of all sizes, as per Symform’s predictions will demand that vendors and service providers improve on-ramps to the cloud and service level agreements around cloud services.
"As we enter 2013, the massive growth of digital data and the challenges around how to secure, manage and store that data is only increasing -- in spite of the many technologies and cloud solutions aimed at alleviating these issues," said Matthew J. Schiltz, CEO of Symform, in a statement.
He further added: "Last year, we correctly predicted the continued disparity between local and remote storage costs, along with an increased concern over the high cost and environmental impact of a record build out of datacenters to support centralized cloud platforms. This year, we will see even greater awareness of the wasted, unused capacity in our existing infrastructure investments and the need to embrace distributed, decentralized systems. This will enable IT's efforts to gain back control of rogue devices and cloud applications."
Symform's top six predictions for 2013 include: Continued Exponential Data Growth Will Result in Increased Investment in Data Management & Big Data, Cloud Storage On-Ramps Will Enter the Mainstream, As BYOD and Cloud Denial Comes to a Head, IT Will Shut Down Rogue Cloud Usage, Cloud Economics Will Shift with Low Cost No Longer the Main Value Proposition, Companies Will Demand More Stringent SLAs and Reliability from Cloud Providers and Companies Will Embrace Distributed Computing Models.
These predictions from Symform will have certain impact on both large enterprises and small and medium-sized businesses as well as the IT service providers who deliver solutions to them.
