NSA affair made the situation in the middle not to develop or invest in cloud projects and providers ended up with too little new solutions. NSA paused the development. Among the technology issues dominated this and last year, the “security” agendas predominated.
The increasing digitization means that IT failures and vulnerabilities for companies are becoming increasingly expensive and risky, so much effort is made to avoid problems resulting in lesser development in core area.
Cloud is again not an individual candidate, but it is a part of the whole concern and thus they all are in a boat together with mobile, cloud, social & Advanced Analytics (MCSA). Local Cloud, unlike as thought by many; Offer Little Protection. Practically, we opined around the security concern before in the form of various articles – Cloud Computing at this Time of PRISM, PRISM and Cloud Computing – Its SaaS that will be Rghtly Killed, Snowden Affects the Cloud Security Market.
But from recent data from Gartner, which we talked about in CRM SaaS and Market Trends; the demand of a big niche has not yet been killed.
Cloud Ecosystem and Impact of NSA Blow : Not Really a Serious Refrain from Cloud Computing
Companies, largely SMBs that use cloud in practice, mainly have had a positive experience. All analysts predict a continued growth of the cloud market. But the revelations about the eavesdropping methods of U.S. intelligence agencies have made many cloud users thoughtful. After all, 18 percent of companies surveyed have laid planned to put cloud projects on ice. The bottom line 40 percent of the companies used the technology in 2013, the year before it was 37 percent.
Comparing with the results from the global survey, however, shows that SMBs are far more aggressive for the benefits of the cloud or plan to use them. Analysts say that the international SMBs will contribute to significant growth within 2016. So, in real – usage has not been significantly decreased.
Cloud Ecosystem and Impact of NSA Blow : The impact on the Cloud Providers
Times have become harder for the Independent Software Vendors all around the World. The on-premise software solutions is no longer growing, it tends to decline. Looking back on the transition of the cloud ISVs raises the discussion on details of the transition to the cloud, in order to understand the business context. This serves as a framework for an understanding of the possibilities, because the cloud is changing everything – this applies to both the seller and the buyer:
- The management of a cloud business solution is not comparable to an on-premise software
- The nature of the solution and the resources of the ISV determine the critical path
- It is basically not only cloud technology, but also the architecture of the “Limitless company” sets special accents
- Synergy is crucial, but not only the technology synergy
- The transition to the cloud is inevitable for the ISVs
- More and more companies have cloud-first strategies implemented because fewer and fewer grounds for postponing the cloud
Companies rely on international new architectures that come closer to the “borderless enterprise”. Begin thinking about their organization and redefine to use the use of mobile, social and analytical technologies. For the ISV this change in the market, however, is very challenging. And for ISVs who are still at the beginning of the path, are on the learning curve which makes any unused weeks to go getting steeper and more demanding.
This business and technology challenges will affect both the start-ups and the established. The success in the cloud is always of the value of a performance with cost-effective method, combined with efficient methods of management.
