In 2018, we saw the emergence of several important pivot points that changed the trajectory of cloud in a big way, making it an even more important part of enterprises’ core IT strategies for 2019. As cloud has become a default paradigm, the reality of making bets on multiple providers and then figuring out how those clouds work together seamlessly is a key question CIOs and CTOs have been asking themselves.Next year, we expect businesses to make bets on multiple cloud platforms, and cloud providers need to work together to deliver a seamless experience.Vendors will be looking at a variety of considerations, from performance consistency, network connectivity, abstraction, to management and API consistency – to make sure the migration journey doesn’t become more complicated just because customers want to make a bet on multiple cloud platforms.

The public cloud services market is expected to total more than $214 billion when the figures for 2019 are finalised.The Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) segment of cloud is expected to have grown nearly 30% during 2019. If you haven’t heard of “IaaS”, that’s ok, just think of “Amazon Web Services” or “Microsoft Azure” as some of the biggest players in IaaS. In 2019, the U.S. Department of Defence even entered into a $10 billion contract with Microsoft Azure to move to the cloud, offering yet another proof point on the perceived convenience and security of using cloud-based infrastructure.

It’s part of an ecosystem, and you’re going to have to look at the totality of doing it.

The cloud has had a major impact on broadcast workflows, with media companies moving their infrastructure to the cloud or private data centres in a bid to simplify workflows and reduce costs. Many broadcasters are now looking to a hybrid cloud approach, which leverages a mixed computing storage and services environment that combines on-premises infrastructure (and/or private cloud services) and a public cloud such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Microsoft Azure – with orchestration between these various platforms.
