The future of cloud: A deep dive on the next ten years of cloud evolution

What’s the future of cloud? In this Knowledge Short, David Linthicum takes us ten years into the future. His predictions? Multi-cloud complexity increases, but so does the use of superclouds to rein it in. Skills change, specialize, and grow to meet demand. Artificial intelligence changes everything. Local, regional, and industry clouds will continue to rise. But, perhaps the most surprising prediction is that “cloud” won’t exist; it’ll just be computing because cloud will be so ubiquitous.

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.


The future of cloud: Tough challenges but great possibilities

It's not too much to say cloud has changed the way the world works. However, challenges such as data issues, economic concerns, and cloud complexity still remain and are imperative for companies to solve. Those that do will be well-poised to define the future of cloud.


Cloud and AI together: Reshaping the future of business

AI is reshaping the future of business, and cloud is helping make that future more affordable. The result will be greater automation, the ability to focus more on strategy, and a reimagining of how business is done.
