IT infrastructures are evolving considerably with the rise of cloud technologies and the digital transition of companies. The digitization of processes, the alignment of information systems with uses and businesses, and the digitization of services are improving the performance and agility of companies, resulting in the evolution of technologies and the interoperability of systems. The advent of cloud technologies in all IT sectors (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) is contributing to this digital revolution, but they are not necessarily a panacea, particularly in terms of the environmental impact of information systems and control of digital infrastructures. Faced with virtualization, the on premise remains an essential component of the best performing infrastructures.
The technological evolution of digital infrastructures, serving the performance of companies
According to estimates, the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) market should reach nearly 6 billion euros in France and more than 1,000 billion dollars worldwide by 2024. It is supported by a dynamic cloud ecosystem, marked in recent years by a sharp increase in the sale of software in SaaS (Software as a Service) mode and the deployment of Platforms as a Service (PaaS). The digital transition and the pandemic (which has seen the development of online services, e-commerce and the use of teleworking) have accentuated the demand for virtualization. This trend is obviously not a fad, as considerable sums have been invested at national and European level to support the development of these technologies.
