According to a new research, with the dramatic rise of cloud computing and its continuous usage in the future, it is predicted that cloud computing will make traditional PCs effectively redundant, replacing them by 2014.

Cloud computing is known to provide bookkeeping accounting computation, business accounting software applications, online accounting programs data access and management and storage resources without requiring cloud users to know the location and other details of the computing infrastructure.

Now, many businesses are using cloud computing. And it was recently revealed that the majority of CIOs across Europe and around the world believe that the cloud would be their IT operating channel by 2014.

Since its implementation, the death of the PC has been pronounced for years by cloud computing evangelists.

Now, according to a new report published by Gartner, the world’s leading IT research firm, data reveals that the cloud has been predicted to become the dominant form of business computing in just two years' time.

After weighing in on the issue, the new report by Gartner has predicted that personal cloud services will soon replace the traditional PC as the dominant form of business computing by 2014.

According to Gartner analysts, they have identified five “megatrends” in cloud computing. Of which, they predicted that these trends will come together, resulting to the rapid adoption of the cloud in business.

Among these “megatrends” include: the tech consumerization and virtualization, and the dramatic increase of a "new level" of user mobility and flexibility, allowing businesspeople to choose how and where they work, basing on the strengths of the options open to them.

Steve Kleynhans, research vice president at Gartner, stated in a press release that the major trends in client computing have resulted to a shift in the market, shifting away from a focus on the traditional PCs to a broader device perspective that includes smartphones, tablets and other consumer devices.

Kleynhans further stated that with the emerging cloud services, these will become the glue that connects the web of devices that users choose to access during the different aspects of their daily life.
