Google Trends 2015: People typed countless things into the Google search box this year. The terror attacks on Charlie Hebdo in January and the city of Paris in November topped the list. Google introduced an entirely new way to determine and present that information.

The findings are the the result of  Google’s Year In Search, which is a kind of metadata journalism—Info about all the news that people cared about this year. Google’s been doing it for 15 years. And this year it created a remarkably comprehensive package, one that used trillions of queries as its data pool. The results are presented as raw search numbers, downloadable datasets, interactive elements, and embeddable components.

The Year In Search is heavy on visualization tools to help navigate 2015’s major events. Below you can find a briefing Video about it:

This methodology requires the most effort to implement but it results in the most optimised recurring cost and will provide the best scalability for apps. This involves re-adapting the code of applications and the heavy use of SAAS solutions in order to replace existing hosted applications.


This method utilizes the power of  PAAS services, like transferring a database to an as-a-service model,  the use of containers for some apps or the use of network/security functions as a service. Greater scalability and lower cost of operation is achieved.

the migration of workloads from  to the cloud without changing the architecture. Machines get to keep their  OS and apps. This is the quickest and easy way to migrate, but since its  utilising IAAS, its is also the most expensive on the long term.
