Given the ongoing evolution of CIO’s functions, 2019 should result in higher pressure on the delivery of IT solutions that meet the expectations of customers and partners.

Regarding the cloud, we had 2018 year of growth in IT spending, with the projected rate being 60 to 70 percent of all software, technology and service spending by 2020.

Therefore, it is imperative that IT managers consider cloud computing essential to be competitive rather than an option or cost that requires active management.

Next year will be the year the CIO learns to understand the new cloud-based capabilities and needs to focus on security. So, it has to forget the printer inks and toner cartridges because there is so much to learn.

Four directions to the CIO in cloud computing should be prepared in 2019:

  1. A high number of cloud services and solutions (SaaS, Paas, IaaS).

There has been an explosion of cloud computing services and solutions on the horizon, which is why:

(SaaS), the subscription program is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 18% by 2020, according to Bain & Company.

PaaS will increase by 56 percent by 2019, making it the emerging cloud platform, according to KPMG.

Infrastructure (IaaS) is expected to hit $72.4 billion globally by 2020, according to Gartner.

In assessing current trends in cloud computing, it’s easy to see public and private cloud solutions rising dramatically by 2019. The cloud offers its simplicity with high-quality performance, so companies start to pay attention.

  1. The Holy Grail of Quantum Computing Technology – Maybe Closer to What We Think

Quantitative superiority is what happens in this race. The big players are trying to take the lead, while IBM continues to argue between Microsoft, Intel and Google, both with in-depth research and development with the quantum computer, to offer features that go beyond the limits, such as authentic conversations, encryption data and weather forecast solving a complex medical problem.

While a reliable and error-free solution may exist within a decade, recent events have shown us that the Big Four are approaching the race.

JPMorgan Chase, Barclays, Samsung, and Daimler Honda were very fast on the latest version of IBM’s latest 5-quit and 20-qubit version, a milestone when they introduced quantum computing into a cloud-based cloud service first time during the test phase.

Since then, Alibaba has joined the Chinese Academy of Sciences to further develop the 11-bit service currently available in the quantum computing cloud, making it the second fastest service in the world.

The reality is that the quantum computing market is growing faster than expected. According to our estimates, the market value will be about $1.9 billion by 2023, quadrupled in 2027 to about $8 billion.

We are witnessing a slightly overcrowded market that joins the race.

Well-known companies, such as D-Wave Systems in Canada, have been the leading computer suppliers in the world with more than a dozen other companies involved in component development, algorithms, software and application tools.

If Alibaba and IBM can implement an efficient cloud computing quantum computer, it will likely accelerate the adoption of quantum computing.

It’s about reaching goals as they finish, which will lead to a number of innovations in quantum computing.

  1. “Subscribe to ads” will become popular among companies for Cloud Hybrid solutions

For some companies, the transition to the cloud was a bit more complicated than expected, and hybrid solutions had a chance to play their part.

By using hybrid solutions, the transition can be more gradual and produce a result in lower cost. 2019 will be a year when companies will choose the efficiency of hybrid cloud solutions.

IBM, AWS, and Google offer multiple client systems with a combination of private and public clouds. The technologists in 2019 will need to pay attention to the advantages and disadvantages of each cloud option to make the right decision based on your needs.

  1. GDP seems to have been created to make cloud security more confusing

Security will not surprise you with cloud technology. This must be continuous. With the introduction of the General Data Protection System (GDPR), companies are expected to take a more realistic approach and take into account the security implications associated with the ease of use offered by the cloud.

All companies must come to terms with the fact that they must fully comply with their data practices for GDP.

Gartner plans to move to 2020. Almost all of the current weaknesses will be known to security and IT professionals in 2019.

Digital transformation is driving more and more companies into the cloud next year, which means cybersecurity threats will increase.
