Cloud Computing Enabling Industry 4.0
When it comes to find the computer systems to apply AI and other related technologies in the industry, cloud computing is one of the best options.

Three main cloud services are IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), PaaS (Platform as a Service), and SaaS (Software as a Service).
In industry, cloud computing allows businesses to access up to date data and applications provided by the emerging technologies. And the good thing is, you don’t need to build a huge physical infrastructure to acquire this all. Cloud based computing can be easily installed and changed depending on the needs of industry.
But as we discussed before, there is always a room for improvement in the field of IT and related technologies. Similar is the case with cloud computing. Where cloud computing offers businesses help to attain automation, it poses some new challenges at the same time.
The biggest issue is security. Considering a professional and reliable cloud is important in this aspect to secure a business.
Because cyber security threats are also increasing with the advancements of technology. Cloud computing is an open platform for everyone from individuals to the enterprises so hackers get a chance to steal data and change the systems.
So, the businesses shifting to cloud platforms must keep security in mind.
At the same time, the new technologies are being introduced to make it a secure option for huge businesses. Experts expect that the cloud platforms would be as secure as personal computers before industry 4.0 evolves to the industry 5.0. Let’s see what happens!
