SIOS Reveals Technology Predictions for 2020

Technology Corp
.’s VP of Global Marketing Frank Jablonski reveals
his top technology predictions for 2020. The cloud’s inexorable path to
IT dominance will continue in 2020 with players from across the IT
industry accelerating their cloud-native development efforts. Included
are the cloud service providers and their enterprise customers, of
course, as well as application and system software vendors, and system

Frank Jablonski outlines the following five major trends that guide his

  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence will deliver cost
    savings through greater cloud efficiencies.
    Enterprises are
    looking for application and cloud service providers to help them
    operate more efficiently through the use of machine learning (ML) and
    artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver more effective resource
    management. Achieving this will require the environment or application
    to understand when it needs more resources and then automatically
    scaling up those resources to meet the increased demand. Conversely,
    the technology will need to understand when specific resources are no
    longer needed and safely turn them off to minimize costs. Today such
    dynamic resource allocation can be unreliable or must employ an
    inefficient manual process, forcing cloud customers to either spend
    more than necessary or fall short of meeting service levels during
    periods of peak demand.
  • DevOps will transition companies to cloud-native
    Enterprises will seek to take full advantage
    of the cloud’s agility by re-architecting their application/technology
    stacks to optimize them specifically for the cloud environment. IT
    departments regularly use a “lift and shift” approach to migrating
    applications to the cloud, but the effort still requires some changes
    to ensure meeting desired service levels owing to some differences
    between private and public infrastructures. After the initial wave of
    migration to the cloud is optimized, DevOps will drive re-architecting
    their application/technology stacks to a cloud-native implementation
    to take further advantage of the cloud’s greater efficiency,
    reliability, scalability and affordability.
  • Application vendors will architect HA and DR into their core
    Application vendors will endeavor to deliver
    greater value and higher reliability by integrating core high
    availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) features into their
    solutions. Most applications today require the customer to provide
    these protections separately, and most organizations do this for all
    their applications with a general-purpose HA/DR solution. With HA
    and/or DR built into an application as a standard feature, customers
    will be able to simply deploy it on any platform in a private, purely
    public or hybrid cloud environment. This will be especially beneficial
    for smaller organizations that normally lack the expertise or
    resources needed to implement and operate configurations capable of
    eliminating all single points of failure. For cloud-native
    implementations, the application vendor will want to take full
    advantage of the resiliency afforded by the cloud’s multiple
    availability zones and regions.
  • DBaaS and cloud will become the preferred platform for database
    IT organizations have traditionally chosen to
    implement critical databases and applications in their own
    datacenters, where the staff retains full control over the
    environment. As the platforms offered by cloud service providers
    (CSPs) have matured, the cloud has become commercially viable for
    hosting critical applications, as well as Database-as-a-Service
    (DBaaS). This viability is true even for complete suites, such as SAP,
    that span virtually all of an organization’s departments and all of
    its business functions. This change will put greater focus on
    reliability, availability and performance of the applications, and
    make the cloud more strategically important to companies. For CSPs who
    deliver greater resilience through availability zones and geographic
    diversity, it will be a way to secure long-term engagements with
  • Resellers and system integrators will play an increasingly vital
    role as critical applications move to the cloud.
    As the
    migration of enterprise applications to the cloud accelerates and
    matures, the need to ensure mission-critical high availability (HA)
    will create opportunities for resellers and system integrators. This
    window of opportunity is forming as enterprises seek more robust HA
    solutions that have yet to be fully integrated into the application
    and system software. Some system integrators may have the expertise
    and resources needed to leverage open-source software in their Linux
    offerings. But an increasing percentage will choose to integrate
    solutions purpose-built to provide HA and disaster recovery
    protections, as these have proven to be more dependable for the
    customer, while also being just as (if not more) profitable for the

According to Jablonski, “From service and solution providers to
enterprise DevOps, organizations will be re-architecting their
applications and technology stacks to cloud-native designs to take full
advantage of the cloud’s greater efficiency, reliability, scalability
and affordability. As these efforts progress, systems integrators will
enjoy a window of opportunity filling in the gaps and otherwise adding
