Cloud computing is the new norm; the cloud is here to stay

Like other beneficial disruptive technologies that helped humanity advance and helped make people’s lives easier and more enjoyable, the internet cloud is here to stay, and Khamelia is taking full advantage of it.

The technology world is radically changing yet again, and the individuals and companies who position themselves for this massive shift, can profit quite nicely. "In many areas, SaaS (cloud) has become the preferred delivery model," said Mr. Nag, senior researcher at Gartner. "Now SaaS users are increasingly demanding more purpose-built offerings engineered to deliver specific business outcomes." This is what the experts are saying... and that's where Khamelia will be. You see, we're positioning ourselves for this new opportunity, the cloud, and we’re asking you to come with us.

Do you know that small and mid-sized businesses will spend approximately $1.0 trillion on software and/or software-related services this year alone? That's right - businesses need software and they're willing to spend the necessary money to get the required software in order to help run their companies.

Let's back up a bit. In the 1960's software was written to operate within large centralized mainframe computing environments. These mainframe systems were very complex. Companies like IBM created specialized software for their big corporate clients to use within their local mainframe-based computing facilities.

When Apple and Microsoft came into the market in the 1980's, they helped transition software formats from the large centralized mainframes to a more distributed computing "server/desktop" environment, that can be used on small office and home computers. This in return, has allowed companies like Microsoft and other distributed software companies to make hundreds of billions in revenue over the last 3-4 decades.

And now... With the arrival of software-as-a-service (SaaS) environments, also called cloud services, companies are uniquely positioned to upgrade and transition many of their local (on-premise) server/desktop-based operations to the cloud, drastically reducing their IT (information technology) costs. This transition has launched a new industry, the cloud industry, with huge financial opportunities in the technology world.

In fact, financial and industry leaders are calling this the "Next Big Thing" within the IT industry where hundreds of billions of dollars will be spent on software for the cloud environment over the next five years alone.

Gartner inc, the world's leading it research and advisory company, has been tracking this new market demand since its beginning, where they have reported approximately $48.2 billion in revenue in 2016 and $71.2 billion in 2018 for software companies that are offering their software services from the cloud.

According to the Gartner Group, the worldwide SaaS cloud services is projected to grow over a 160% from 2016 to 2021, a growth of $117.1 billion in 5 years. And this is only the beginning. Gartner is predicting exponential growth for the next 20 years.

Even over the last five years, we have seen the ‘cloud’ evolve, from mainly SaaS, to IaaS, PaaS, and now IoTaaS. There is no doubt we will see more exiting things from the cloud over the next years.
