by Nikhil Handigol

Predicting the future is tricky business. However, when you’re privileged enough to frequently speak with the technology leadership at Fortune 500 companies, looking forward is less about gazing into a crystal ball and more of an extrapolation of trends that you're seeing.

I’m honored that Fast Mode published my article detailing what I think is in store for cloud computing in 2022. This article is the output of my many conversations with the people responsible for designing, implementing, and maintaining the most complex and mission-critical computing environments in the world, combined with my observations as a long-time industry participant.

The fact that cloud growth will continue at a breakneck pace is a given. The steep trajectory of growth opens the door for increased complexity combined with a plethora of vendors offering siloed, task-specific tools that actually make it harder for cloud teams to deliver agility, predictability, and security in the computing environment.

The cloud will continue to inspire developers to find new and exciting ways to solve age-old problems, connect us, and even entertain us. The last two years would have been much more difficult without the cloud. So no matter what the future of the cloud holds, it’s up to us to help companies get the most out of their investment. We love making hard stuff easy so that IT teams can be proactive instead of reactive.
