Navigating Cloud Trends in 2023: A Year in Review

Editorial

As we say goodbye to 2023, it’s clear that cloud computing is shaking things up for businesses. This year saw big growth in private cloud services, with experts predicting a whopping 26.71% yearly increase. Public cloud spending is also set to hit a massive USD 591.8 billion globally, focusing on Software as a Service (SaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions. Using tools for cloud optimization and automation is now super important for efficient and resilient business strategies.

Businesses, especially, had to make important choices about investing in cloud infrastructure. TCS, a top consulting company, spotted five key trends: Cloud 2.0, sovereign cloud, 5G and edge computing, industry cloud, and talent shifts. Navigating through these trends is a must for companies looking to stay strong and successful in the always-changing business world.

Cloud computing is making a big impact on banking as well. In our tech-driven world, it’s helping banks come up with new ideas, be tough in tough times, and grow without breaking the bank. But, before banks jump into using it, they need to think about the possible problems that might pop up. We’re taking a closer look at how banks are dealing with these challenges.

In ‘This Week in Consulting,’ we dug deep into cloud computing, sharing success stories, industry growth, and real-life cases from different sectors. We hope you enjoy reading it and would love to hear your thoughts. Join the conversation shaping the future of business technology!
