According to IT analyst firm Gartner, low-cost cloud computing will be popular in the next few years. With this forecast, there’s a possibility that companies will change their views in pricing and value in the marketplace.
Gartner assumes that revenues from outsourcing IT infrastructure will be greatly affected. The growing popularity of low-cost cloud computing will have a negative impact to the IT services market. Moreover, due to the increase in demand and usage of mobile devices and applications globally, companies are now shifting from desktop clients to web-based services.
Gartner also predicts that with better information security, majority of the top-1,000 companies worldwide are determined to store valuable sensitive data in the public cloud. Nevertheless, the firm believes that the number of cybercrimes will still grow. It is estimated to increase by 10 percent annually.
According to a document published by the Financial Times, there are proposals to the European Commission that involve fining companies if there are breaches in data security.
