I don't think it will make remote access software totally obsolete because not ALL firms are going to go to the cloud. Certainly I agree that the cloud will shrink the need (and accordingly the market) for remote access software, but quite a few firms either can't or won't abandon in-house maintained systems.

cloud computer

Many organizations WANT to make the leap to cloud computing. Reduced cost (65%), Scalability (62%), and Rapid Implementation (50%) are seen as primary benefits to cloud computing, and 87% of respondents indicated that they were planning to at least evaluate the use of cloud services. However, it’s clear that the necessary security measures aren’t yet in place to allow them to safely take that first step. The top three security measures respondents thought were critical to securing the cloud included: Encryption (84%), Multi-Factor Authentication (81%), and Intrusion Prevention (80%).

Remote Access

I think that both technologies will have their place in the next decade. Companies that want to own all of their own data (any large corp) are going to want to avoid going to the cloud. Hence they will produce demand for traditional remote desktop software.
