Top trends of Cloud Computing in India
With over 60% of businesses using the cloud services, it is obvious that cloud computing is not only here to stay but grow significantly. Accordingly, here are some of the major trends in cloud that are supposed to become dominant through the year 2015.
Public cloud all set for enterprises : Early adopters have the world to gain in terms of speed-to-market, agility, innovation and cost advantages. Concepts like sandboxes, cages, a healthy portfolio of services, location-specific security and regulatory requirements, transparent recovery procedures etc will become key considerations in the enterprise engagement model. And this will be satisfactorily addressed in the hybrid cloud ecosystem. Starting next year, public cloud service providers will raise their offerings and their pitches to reflect enterprise requirements and priorities – better than ever before.
Key opportunities in unified mobile analytics and social solutions : The ability to deliver a unified mobile, analytic and social solution is one of the key opportunities on hand by cloud adoption. And yet, most enterprises still have strategies for each of these intertwined components. Neither mobility nor analytics nor social should be viewed in silos - as something to be bolted eventually onto a central cloud strategy. Enterprises in 2015, will not adopt this unified strategy. However, the first mature plans for these components to be embedded into a core cloud strategy will be formulated. The cloud has generated sufficient reach and momentum to become a serious contender in IT services delivery.
Mobile, analytics will be determined : Constraints created by legacy applications and infrastructure has always been a top priority for enterprise technology stewards. Starting 2015, the cloud will spur a twofold increase in application and infrastructure modernization programs. Modernization will become an imperative for enterprises looking to leverage new age possibilities with the cloud as well make the most of converging technologies in mobility, social and big data, which are best served by the distributed computing model. Any hybrid enterprise IT model that still has a significant legacy component will create operational bottlenecks for organizations.
The surfacing of the hybrid cloud : The increase of the hybrid cloud will put an end to the debate regarding whether to go for private cloud or public cloud. Statistics reveal that businesses have difficulty choosing between the two and as a result, look for deploying a mixture of both private and public cloud. But an achievement of multiple cloud providers undergoes the risk of failure in tracking resources and controlling the operating expense. Hybrid cloud puts an end to these concerns as it fuse the security and cost-effectiveness of the private cloud with the power-packed performances of the public cloud.
Transformed outsourcing with the cloud in perspective : The proportion of cloud services within a typical outsourcing deal is also mounting. These developments will require radical structural changes in the nature of sourcing contracts. In the scalable, agile, flexible world of cloud computing, multi-year monolithic contracts will become wiped out. Successful cloud sourcing contracts will be structured around individual business rules and needs rather than on long-term vendor partnerships.
