In response to the performance, security, and compliance requirements, 40% of organisations will adopt dedicated cloud services either on-premises or in a service provider facility by 2024, said IDC in its latest report.
“Indian enterprises are considering the use of a combination of solutions from public cloud service providers and traditional infrastructure software/equipment providers, to gain the benefits of security and control of a private cloud along with the elasticity of a public cloud,” it said.
Organisations have now moved on from leveraging cloud as an alternative IT purchasing model to utilising cloud as both a technology platform and an operational model, said IDC.
“To maintain business resiliency and enhance digital transformation (DX), organisations consider using a mix of solutions from public cloud service providers and traditional infrastructure software/equipment providers. Moreover, factors including continued pervasive disruption, digital-first approaches, digital ecosystem, and others propel cloud adoption amongst Indian organisations,” it said.
“The digital-first world mandates, leveraging technology and cloud, continues to be at the forefront of all technology-associated investments. The hybrid world of today and tomorrow is resulting in increased dependence on cloud for achieving agility, flexibility, and innovation. As the need for leveraging data is supreme, it requires access to digital technologies that are built on a cloud foundation,” said Rishu Sharma, Associate Research Director, Cloud and AI at IDC India.
IDC also highlighted cloud predictions that would impact the technology buyers and suppliers in 2022 and beyond.
By 2026, 60% of CIOs will require cloud and telco partners to deliver secure cloud-to-edge connectivity solutions that guarantee performance and consistency in data collection.
By 2025, the majority of legacy applications will receive some modernisation investment, with cloud services used by 50% of the applications to extend functionality or replace inefficient code, it said.
Also by 2024, in response to the performance, security, and compliance requirements, 40% of organizations will implement dedicated cloud services either on-premises or in a service provider facility, the report said.
