Mainframes to Cloud - The Evolution or Revolution

M. Jyoti

Abstract: Information Technology innovation for the past five decades has resulted in lightning fast processor speeds, an almost omnipresent public cloud and cheaper technology. Just as technology has evolved ( Intel microchip went from the size of a fingernail to the width of a hair strand in twenty years), technology expertise has evolved along with it. From the mainframe of yesterday to todays cloud centric evolution, there have been physical and technological changes in computing and data storage and they have had tremendous impact on IT decision making. Today, a terabyte of storage isnt much more than a few trips to our local coffee shop. As the technology landscape has become more complex, were seeing a shift from self-managed hardware to managed cloud services that let businesses get back to innovating and growing. Innovation has played a bigger role in the technology evolution.
