5 Top Trends That We’ll Look Back at 2017

///5 Top Trends That We’ll Look Back at 2017

Whether to compute, storage and networking – software-defined are embraced in every area. That is one of the predictions of Riverbed Technology for 2017. There will also be expected to be a new cloud wave and gets the end-user experience more attention.

Here are five trends that we’ll look back in 2017.

1. Everything is software-defined

Management of the computing environment, storage and networking is becoming more automated managed by intelligent software and not the hardware components. It is expected to make big companies increasingly opting for technologies that allow for flexibility, insight, and performance. In this way, the way is open for the software-defined enterprise.

2. Digital transformation creates new cloud wave

Digital transformation is not just a trend. The expectation is that in all markets in 2017, more and more mission-critical applications will be migrated to the cloud. Cloud-only and Internet-only are the future. For this, organizations will be more flexible, and they can save more costs.

3. The end-user experience is key

Companies find that the performance of their applications (in some cases) deteriorate after a move to the cloud. This has adverse consequences for the end-user experience. Companies will increasingly organize an end-user experience center or appoint an employee using the end-user designer to optimize application performance and prevent frustrated employees through shadow IT look for their own solutions.

4. There will be an end to data storage on the premises

‘Cloud-first’ strategies are emerging, and CIOs are looking for ways to reduce the risk of data loss in the sites. Large enterprises also choose in 2017 for a centralized infrastructure model. With this, they can secure data at the sites with easier and more effective backup solutions. The same applies to storing data in the datacenter, the cloud or a hybrid solution. It is possible to implement the IT department capable of new services on site when the business requires it.

5. Large companies working towards strategic architecture for digital transformation

Large enterprises will increasingly realize the more application based on compute, storage and network infrastructures must work together seamlessly. If somewhere a flaw or a fault occurs in the infrastructure can affect the entire system. Therefore, a strategic architecture must include the entire company and bring together all the components into a single software-defined system.

    Tracking the developments in digital technology devices and services is a fun, but often exhausting, exercise. Changes happen so rapidly that it’s hard for anybody to know them all— even if, like me, that’s essentially your job. But the effort required to dig in and discover all the amazing new capabilities of cool new technology gadgets, apps and services is always worth it, because you inevitably end up finding an impressive array of fun new stuff. This was a big year for digital technology. Twitter users finally broke free of their 140-character chains, while Tesla made good on its electric car for the people in the Model 3. The Wannacry ransomware attack became one of the most disruptive cyberattacks in history, and three commissioners on the FCC lead by Chairman Ajit Pai (at least temporarily) repealed Obama-era net neutrality rules. Automation and AI also increased in adoption during the year with many innovative startups spewing out prototypes, but perhaps not to the scale that we expected. Where we saw most of the automation was in chatbots, like expected, however the much-hyped Amazon drone delivery tests didn’t expand much further than where they stood during 2016 nor did we see anyone adopting automation any quicker than the current pace. AI and so-called ‘machine learning’ made a big splash though, especially in the app space. The underpinnings of cryptocurrency — a distributed Leger system called the blockchain — has a real place in the future of technology, regardless of whether or not the price of Bitcoin is $0 or $50,000 with a huge potential for skill development in the coming year 2018.
