An Aerial View of Cloud Computing in 2020

An Aerial View of Cloud Computing in 2020

Tuesday, November 17, 2020
Presenter: Melanie Posey


The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on business have been widespread and deeply felt, causing significant and lasting changes to ways of working, business priorities, IT strategies and other organizational structures. 

From testing to production environments, cloud is now in every organization’s IT playbook and accounts for an increasing share of overall IT spending.

Fifteen years since the launch of Amazon Web Services (AWS), let’s take stock of where businesses are in their cloud journeys.

Where is public cloud making the biggest inroads as the go-to workloads/application deployment environment? How are businesses using cloud native tools and frameworks in their IT estates?  In recent months, the COVID-19 pandemic has raised the profile of public cloud services – how has this impacted the business journey to cloud?

Join 451 Research VP Melanie Posey to delve into these and other insights from recent 451 Alliance research.

In this webinar, we’ll discuss:

  • State of public cloud adoption
  • Workload/application deployment environments: best execution venues
  • Cloud native frameworks and tools: implementation and applications
  • Cloud spending trends
  • Cloud skills gaps
  • COVID-19: cloud update
