New Delhi: A hybrid multicloud environment will be operating in 50% of enterprises in India by 2021, predicts IDC as part of its India contextualized Worldwide Cloud Predictions for 2020 and beyond.

With organizations progressing on their digital journey, cloud has become the backbone for all new-age technologies. With 95% of the organizations planning to increase their cloud spend in the coming 12 months, the adoption of cloud technologies is pertinent for enterprises of all sizes.

Enterprises in India are looking at cloud as a key enabler to meet their business priorities. As per IDC’s Cloud Pulse 2Q19, 75% of organizations in India have plans to invest in the cloud-based infrastructure and applications to meet their business goals,” said Rishu Sharma, Principal Analyst – Cloud and Artificial Intelligence, IDC India,

“Cloud will become the enabler for all things digital but will bring in challenges associated with the management of multiple clouds and traditional systems,” added Sharma.

While organizations are looking at multiple clouds, they are also simultaneously dealing with the challenges of managing a hybrid multicloud environment.

For organizations to establish a winning cloud strategy, the operational and management challenges cannot be ignored and require a strict discipline when it comes to visualize resources and manage overall performance.

Some of the key predictions that would impact the technology buyers and suppliers in cloud technologies and services in India in next three years are:

#1 Distributed Clouds: By 2021, 50% of the enterprises in India will rely on a mix of on-premises/dedicated private clouds, several public clouds, and legacy platforms to meet their infrastructure needs.

#3 Multicloud Management: By 2022, 30% of enterprises in India will deploy unified VMs, Kubernetes, and multicloud management processes and tools to support robust multicloud management and governance across on-premises and public clouds.

#10 Hyperagile Apps: By 2023, a third of India enterprise applications will be deployed in a containerized hybrid cloud/multicloud environment to provide agility, delivering a frictionless deployment and management experience.

“Cloud management is a challenge. Organizations are looking for partners that can help them bridge the talent gap, reskill existing staff, and develop access to new resources,” said Swapnil Shende, Senior Market Analyst for AI, IDC India.

“India market demands consistent and standardized automated cloud installations which enable technicians and decision-makers to execute timely assessments cost-effectively,” added Shende.
