Cloud Tech: Transformed our lives, shapes our future

Reading time: 10 minutes | By: SkyDogg  | Apr 01, 2022

Tim Berners-Lee, the man who invented the World Wide Web, may not have thought that his invention will be shaping the future of the human race when he announced it. The World Wide Web was merely one of the programs he built, but it was powerful enough to change the way we live, work, communicate, and see the world.

There was a time when communication meant letters that would take weeks to reach, work meant having to be at the office physically for each meeting, presentation, and appointment, and the internet meant some cool technology that was not accessible for most people - and it was not so long ago.

The World Wide Web paved the way for cloud technology, and ever since, we have seen drastic changes happening in the tech world - so drastic that we find it hard to keep up with the latest advancements. From handwritten letters to virtual assistants, we have come a long way in the last fifty years.

But it seems like the last 50 years has seen more development than the 5000 years before that. Of course, there were new inventions and discoveries, but none of them has changed the lives of past generations as much as the internet and cloud technology is changing ours. We may be able to find multiple reasons behind it, but one thing is for sure - we will see even more drastic changes in the future, and we won’t have to wait a hundred years for that - we will see it in our lifetime.

What does it mean?

We don’t know! Technological advancements affect each generation differently. The youngsters find it easy to adapt and are enthusiastic about new technologies. The older generations, on the other hand, find it difficult to catch up with it. The ones in between see their professional, and personal lives get affected by the tech evolution.

It may mean working in the comfort of our homes for some, and it may mean socializing and catching up with old friends and colleagues for some others - but it means something for everybody.

What does it mean to you? How has it affected your life?

Where are we headed?

It feels like the answer is dangerous and scary, but who really knows? One thing is sure: wherever we are headed, we are headed there fast, and it’ll be faster than most of us realize. Just think about the technological advancements in the 80s and 90s, and compare them with the progress made in the last five or ten years. We have seen more vigorous research and development in the last few years than the 80s, 90s, and 2000s combined.

Most of us don’t even realize that the future will be way different from the present. At least, we think that it will not change that much in our lifetime. But hey! If the last few years have seen this much change, the future will definitely see more of it, and it will happen very, very quickly. The decisions and choices we make about cloud tech today will impact how fast we adapt to the future, and hopefully, we are making the right choices, and our children and grandchildren will have the freedom and opportunities we had. As history tells us - our children’s future depends on adult decisions today.

What do you think - how different does the future look like to you? Will Artificial Intelligence and future technology take over the world like in those movies, or will it make our lives more comfortable? 

Why is this relevant to the SkyDogg Blog?

Technology is confusing. There are a thousand developments we hear about each year, and all of them sound cool and interesting, but only a few survive the test of time. It is crucial to adapt to changes faster in a world that is transforming every day, step by step. So it is necessary to understand the ones that will be impacting our lives and businesses, the ones that may leave us behind if we do not adapt to it.

Cloud technology was new to us in the 2000s, and all of us had the question of whether we should move to the cloud or not back then. Have you seen any businesses asking the same question today? No! In fact, that question was replaced by whether businesses should integrate AI with the cloud ten to fifteen years back. And today, since we have understood how powerful AI is, businesses are competing to integrate more innovative AI algorithms into the cloud software.

But what we can understand from all of this is simple - cloud technology can’t be skipped or put on hold. It is too important to closely watch the developments and implement the ones that will be shaping the future. Unfortunately, we don’t have enough time for all that. 

SkyDogg believes that there is much we can learn from the past when it comes to cloud technology. We want to use our expertise and knowledge in this field to help you make better decisions regarding cloud and technological products and services, from simple things like features and definitions to more complex, advanced topics like who owns the data, what is happening with the data, how is it protected, etc. to company culture, future technological innovations, future of cloud technology, etc.

In the SkyDogg Blog, we will talk about the cloud tech and how it is going to affect our lives and businesses in different ways, the business problems of the past and how certain cloud technologies solved them, and today’s business tech problems and how it is being solved, while also providing a platform for readers to brainstorm together with like-minded people.

We believe if we educate people with clear, concise information based on facts and our understandings, we will be able to help them make better decisions when it comes to choosing technologies, and we are determined to do that.

What do you think the future of cloud tech will look like? Will new technologies replace it, or will it continue to be the platform for all technological services?
