How AI is improving cloud computing
Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the cloud are two of the biggest technology trends globally. Now they’re working together to change the way we live and work. Within our homes, AI and the cloud now power digital assistants like Google Home and Siri, making it possible to perform a wide range of tasks with simple voice commands.
On a much larger scale, businesses are harnessing this new technology to create more efficient and secure workplaces. The benefits of flexibility and reduced costs provided by the cloud, combined with the power of AI to process data and drive automation make this a dynamic solution.
Here are just some of the ways that AI is improving cloud computing.
Get more done, faster
Increasingly we’re seeing AI used within cloud-based platforms because of its ability to process data efficiently, track activity, improve insights and automate repetitive administrative tasks. As the system learns and becomes smarter, AI will be able to create better processes. There are predictions that as these systems become more sophisticated, AI will even be able to manage the cloud independently.
Improved reliability and more uptime
Any technology that can deliver better reliability and uptime remains highly sought after by businesses looking to increase efficiency and better service customers. Together, AI and the cloud are delivering improvements in both overall reliability and uptime. While these improvements may seem small, such as a 1% increase in uptime, the impact for businesses who can continue to sell products and service customers is significant.
Better data management
Businesses continue to produce data at a rapid pace, which is great news for the growth of AI and improvements in cloud computing. AI needs data to grow and learn, so the more data it can access, the better the system becomes.
Where data management was once a headache, as businesses struggled to process and understand their data, AI and the cloud are streamlining the process. AI is already improving the way businesses manage and update data in real-time, having a real impact on supply chain management, customer service and marketing.
Security remains a top priority for businesses globally. The use of AI and machine learning within the cloud is delivering better security by identifying vulnerabilities and helping to prevent attacks early.
While it’s certainly early days for the use of AI and cloud computing in security, more advancements are being made every day.

It seems almost too good to be true that a system that delivers the benefits that AI and the cloud bring could also save money, but it’s true. With cloud applications accessed online rather than through expensive on-site hardware and the power of AI to streamline process and automate tasks that were traditionally performed by a person, businesses can drive costs down. This technology also frees up internal IT resources, allowing them to focus on other tasks that deliver benefits to the business.
It may be early days for the partnership between the cloud and AI, but this powerful combination is already delivering real benefits to businesses. From enhanced productivity and reliability, to better security and lower costs, AI is truly improving cloud computing. The best news is that we are only just starting to explore the possibilities, and we’ll continue to see major improvements to the way we work as the full capabilities of AI and the cloud are realised.
