Hybrid is going to become huge
One trend expected for 2016 is the trend of hybrid being a go-to solution. The hybrid cloud will see a huge increase in deployments as it gives businesses access to the internal and external cloud. This is great for businesses and their unique needs and experts are advising companies to integrate the hybrid solution. In order to be effective, it will be necessary to set guidelines for the way the public cloud services and apps blend with the internal system components.
Support anywhere and anytime
Another trend this year will be the easy access to support anywhere and anytime. The next two years will show a huge overlap between mobile markets and the cloud which means more support for access capability. More and more businesses support the cloud and let their staff access their mission-critical resources through multiple devices. With the coming together of the cloud and mobile, it will mean that more apps will be offered.
Decision-making will be about the shareholders
