Gartner has issued a press release titled “Five Cloud Computing Trends That Will Affect Cloud Strategy Through 2015”, Cloud Computing Journal reports.

The release has five sections – Formal Decision Frameworks Facilitate Cloud Investment Optimisation; Hybrid Cloud Computing Is an Imperative; Cloud Brokerage Will Facilitate Cloud Consumption; Cloud-Centric Design Becomes a Necessity; and Cloud Computing Influences Future Data Centre and Operational Models.

According to Web 2 and More, Gartner says continual monitoring of cloud computing trends, with regular updates to the enterprise’s cloud strategy, will be essential to avoid costly mistakes or miss market opportunities over the next few years. Although the potential for cloud computing is significant, the breadth and depth of the impact, as well as the level of adoption over time, are uncertain and will require frequent review.

“Cloud computing is a major technology trend that has permeated the market over the last two years. It sets the stage for a new approach to IT that enables individuals and businesses to choose how they’ll acquire or deliver IT services, with reduced emphasis on the constraints of traditional software and hardware licensing models,” said Gartner VP David Cearley. “Cloud computing has a significant potential impact on every aspect of IT and how users access applications, information and business services.”
