Directions-:  Read the following passage and answer the following questions based on the given passage. Some of the words are highlighted which would help you to answer some of the questions given

For years, world-wide organisations have become increasingly excited about the prospect of a cloud-based
future. As the dream becomes an ever closer reality for many kinds of business and, Forrester predicted
that enterprise spending on cloud services is set to surge. IDC also predicted that global spending on public
cloud services and infrastructure would reach \$210bn in 2019, an increase of 24% from 2018. But one
obstacle stands create friction and introduce risk: the process of migration.
As all indications point to a massive shift in data deployments to the cloud, it is more important than ever
that the transition from on-premises to Cloud is as risk free as possible. In today’s climate any loss or
disruption to data can have a huge business impact. It’s a complex process, is frequently underestimated
and many organisations have found there’s lots that can go wrong that can impact the business.
Organisations across the globe have found the cloud to be an ideal place to run modern data applications
due to big data’s elastic resource requirements. Furthermore, with the lack of data talent an ever-looming
issue for most companies today they have been determined to adopt a cloud-first strategy to ensure
business operations are accessible for a range of employees.
The cloud offers great promise for developers especially, as it can increase the speed at which they develop
software features and increase the resilience of applications once they are deployed – along with enhanced
security through the use of multiple server locations. With all this considered, it is no surprise that 42% of
UK businesses leverage some kind of cloud service, according to Eurostat.
However, all the perceived benefits of leveraging the cloud are redundant if organisations come up against
barriers to accessing cloud services. Cloud-based data pipelines still suffer from complexity challenges at
the moment, along with the lack of visibility into cost and resource usage at the application and user level.
The answer to this is automation fueled by robust Machine learning training models and artificial
intelligence. These concepts and the tools that enable them can determine the prerequisites of cloud
infrastructure, application dependencies,the appropriate target cloud instance profiles, and provide
troubleshooting in real-time.
To summarise, the promise of the cloud has created a sense of excitement amongst enterprises, however,
they have proceeded to go full steam ahead into adopting a cloud service, without sufficient data to
ensure performance service level agreements (SLAs).

• Why the promise of the cloud has created a sense of excitement amongst enterprises?
(a) As it ensures that business operations are accessible for a range of employees.
(b) As the enterprise spending on cloud services is surging.
(c) Reduction in the cost of operation it may entail.
(d) The secure platform it provides to the data it stores.
(e) None of these
• Which of the following statement(s) is/are correct in context of the passage?
(1) The cloud technology can help in increasing the speed at which the software features are
developed.
(2) There is no risk associated with the cloud technology.
(3) Cloud technology is not a very complex process.
(a) Only (2)
(b) Both (1) and (2)
(c) Only (3)
(d) Only (1)
(d) All are correct
• Which of the following words is most similar to the word “ADOPT” as given in the passage?
(a) mold
(b) deduce
(c) Embrace
(d) Creative
(e) Fluster
• Which of the following words is most OPPOSITE to the word
“MASSIVE” as given in the passage?
(a) Prominent
(b) Insignificant
(c) Enlarged
(d) Filthy
(e) Vouch
• Which of the following words is most similar to the word “ENSURE” as given in the passage?
(a) Confirm
(b) Paced
(c) Redundant
(d) Weaken
(e) Reject
• What is the meaning of the phrase “full steam ahead” ?
(a) Interrupting an activity
(b) Acting cautiously
(c) Great increase
(d) Progressing quickly.
(e) Prudent progression
• How the process of migration stands as an obstacle to the cloud technology?
(a) The expensive cost of providing safety to the data.
(b) The lack of sound technology in Artificial Intelligence.
(c) Complexities of the data migrated to the cloud
(d) It exposes the companies to the risk of losing important information.
(e) None of these
• How can we tackle the risks associated with the process of migration?
(a) By ensuring that organisations only migrate the apps to the cloud that will thrive in the cloud.
(b) The surge in the investment in the cloud technology.
(c) The use of predictive power of Artificial Intelligence.
(d) The transition from on-premises to Cloud
(e) None of these
