Tweetchat Questions: the Future of Cloud Computing
The questions we’ll tweet about will include the following – check back for more/revised questions:
- I’m just checking: in 2023, the only tech topic that people discuss is AI. So…yawn…does cloud still matter? (Hint: yes, more than ever.)
- What key trends are driving the cloud sector here in late 2023?
- What’s the most vexing cloud computing challenge today? Managing multicloud? Containing costs?
- How do you recommend companies address this difficult challenge?
- Okay, to the future: what shifts do you see in cloud as it evolves over the next few years?
- How can companies best keep up with – or stay ahead of – these changes in cloud?
- How will cloud computing be influenced by AI and generative AI?
- What about the future of cloud and a related technology (besides AI)? How about the future cloud and edge, or cloud and data?
- Your longer term sense of the cloud? What’s off in the misty distance?
A last Big Thought about cloud computing – what else should managers/buyers/providers know about enterprise cloud?
