Cloud 2022: distributed, edgy, more cost-effective, and in need of talent

What’s in store for cloud in 2022? A distributed, edge-based cloudscape that’s more cost effective, and growing at such pace that talent is at a precious premium. In this episode, David Linthicum and Mike Kavis look ahead at cloud's 2022. Their insights? More cloud architectures will include federated containers, companies will compete ferociously over top talent, movement to the edge will continue, and FinOps will enable organizations to understand and govern their cloud spend more effectively.


I think the movement of technology, at least the viability of this technology, will be about removing complexity.

As the chief cloud strategy officer for Deloitte Consulting LLP, David Linthicum is responsible for building innovative technologies that help clients operate more efficiently while delivering strategies that enable them to disrupt their markets.

Mike Kavis is the chief cloud architect in Deloitte Consulting LLP’s Cloud practice, responsible for helping clients implement cloud strategy and architecture to drive digital transformation.
