Interoperability and Subscription Models In The New Decade

Throughout 2019, it's become even more clear that customers require services that are unique to their specific needs - across both enterprise and consumer products. When it comes to infrastructure, the one-size-fits-all model will no longer suffice. For top players to continue competing, they will need to focus on flexibility and choice - and many will need to alter their business models to do it. As technology evolves and data continues to grow, more organizations are realizing the need for a hybrid infrastructure. In the new decade, organizations will seek out solutions that offer ease in moving between public and private clouds.

Below are what many of us at Nutanix are predicting for the coming year:

The subscription business model will become the norm for cloud vendors and the IT industry as a whole. More businesses will continue to make the long-term investments and transition to offering subscription plans for their customers to provide the convenience and customizability they require to grow. Additionally, beyond the IT industry, we expect zero companies - with anything other than a subscription business model - will go public in 2020 and beyond.

Enterprises will continue to invest in hybrid cloud and look for greater interoperability between private and public clouds for all workloads, including legacy as well as cloud-native. Customers will begin to look to vendors that can offer software with the ability to run any workload in any location without the burden of rearchitecting or refactoring applications. I also predict that the private cloud will continue to evolve to look more and more like a public cloud, with an increased focus on automation. 2020 will mark the emergence of AI-powered autonomous data centers.

In 2020, we'll see AI start to mirror the values of its creators. That's why it's incredibly important for IT organizations to prioritize buying ML/AI applications from companies that maintain a commitment to diversity in their development teams. To reduce significant biases and stereotypes within company IT processes, we'll see more companies actively seeking diverse sources of data to fuel their own ML/AI algorithms.

As the cloud industry continues to grow, subscription will grow along with it. Throughout 2019, customer feedback proved to us that pay-as-you-go products are essential for the ease of implementation and we don't see this slowing down in the new decade. Our partners will need to embrace the shift to subscription-based licensing in their sales as well, and focus on expanding their capabilities to provide cloud solutions, coverage and capabilities in order to drive accretive growth and success. Implementation and innovation will be integral for partners to maximize value and success.
