IBM : 2023 Hybrid cloud prediction

Over the past few years, many organizations have turned to the cloud to support digital transformation and accelerate the delivery of products and services that meet changing customer needs.


However, the context of security and the need to be able to integrate data from all environments. whether the data resides in the organization on the public cloud or hybrid cloud turns the focus of various organizations start to change


IBM has revealed five key trends for the cloud future to watch out for in the coming year:


Trend 1: Closing the security gap in hybrid cloud environments from a holistic perspective

Even though more than 77% of organizations have started adopting a hybrid cloud approach, less than a quarter of organizations manage their cloud environment holistically.  This means that most organizations are still experiencing Frankencloud or cloud disconnection.  This makes it almost impossible to control the security of the system.  And what's even worse is that these organizations are not even aware that they are experiencing these problems.


In 2023 , organizations need a holistic security strategy that provides a comprehensive view of data across hybrid cloud environments.  Whether the data resides in the organization on public cloud or hybrid cloud, organizations must start preparing for future threats.  This is because in future time upon quantum computing is more advanced and may be able to break the encryption algorithm.  It gives cybercriminals quick access to sensitive information. With quantum safe encryption is another matter that organizations need to reconsider.


Trend 2: Enterprises to combine mainframe and cloud power in modernization

Today, more and more people are moving towards hybrid and multicloud. focus of organizations Has shifted to considering which workloads should be stored where. Which workloads and applications are best suited for the cloud and which should be stored on - premise on -premise In 2023 , many organizations will realize that the choice is not between mainframe or cloud . Cloud – But Mainframe and Cloud, a strategic combination of Cloud and Mainframe. It will help organizations enhance innovation, speed, and security. to drive success in the digital age


Trend 3: Sustainability in a hybrid cloud environment

In 2023 , we will see the organization more and more people are beginning to study the important role of hybrid cloud to help achieve sustainability objectives enterprise leaders which focus on improving energy efficiency across IT without compromising safety or performance.   Organizations will consider a hybrid cloud approach that leverages cloud-based systems.  Combined with the power of the on-premise system in the organization to make running applications which can reduce carbon footprint.  This is in line with the goal of reducing energy consumption across the organization.


Trend 4: The rise of high performance computing

In today's business landscape, the ability to act quickly, analyze and make decisions is critical to increasing your competitiveness and reducing risk.   Especially in highly regulated industries such as the financial services industry.


Next year, we will see many organizations in the financial services industry consider the benefits that can be gained from high-performance computing to enable quick risk analysis make decisions faster while ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements and regulations under supervision


Trend 5: Protecting data in the growing global ransomware threat

While organizations have been trying to meet the rapidly changing needs of our customers in the digital age. They also need to stay ahead of the increasing ransomware threat.  Although it is important to ensure that platforms and services is easy to use for customers, it is even more important to ensure that those platforms and services must be able to protect against bad actors who want to access sensitive financial information or demand ransom.


In 2023, finding a balance between modernizing the system and protecting consumers or stakeholders from various risks will be the key for business, especially in highly regulated industries.  As a result, we will see more and more organizations opting for business transformation strategies designed to protect their workloads as mission-critical priorities.
