Research and Markets: Global Public Cloud Market 2012-2016

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/m5hcv3/global_public) has announced the addition of the "Global Public Cloud Market 2012-2016" report to their offering.

TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Public Cloud market to grow at a CAGR of 29.96 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the need to reduce overall expenditure on IT infrastructure. The Global Public Cloud market has also been witnessing the increasing availability of high bandwidth services. However, the privacy of data in the cloud infrastructure could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The key vendors dominating this market space are Amazon.com Inc., Google Inc., Hewlett-Packard Co., IBM Corp., Microsoft Corp., Rackspace Inc., and Salesforce.com Inc.

The other vendors mentioned in the report are VMware Inc., Red Hat Corp., Dell Inc., Citrix Systems Inc., CA Inc., Oracle Corp., CSC, BMC Software Inc., ATandT Corp., and EMC Corp.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio's Data Centers team said: ''Many countries across the globe are witnessing the introduction of high bandwidth communication services such as 3G and 4G. With the increasing bandwidth support, advanced applications such as Gtalk, Skype, and BB Messenger are being widely used by end-users. These applications are supported over smartphones and tablets which creates a need for high-speed communication networks to be implemented. Many end-users are storing their data in the cloud infrastructure and accessing voice- and video-based applications, which is one of the major trends in the Global Public Cloud market.''

While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.
Machine learning provides predictive models which a business can apply in countless ways to better understand its customers and operations. Since machine learning was first developed with flat, tabular data in mind, it is still not widely understood: when does it make sense to use graph databases and machine learning in combination? This talk tackles the question from two ends: classifying predictive analytics methods and assessing graph database attributes. It also examines the ongoing lifecycle for machine learning in production. From this analysis it builds a framework for seeing where machine learning on a graph can be advantageous.'
Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
