New Delhi: Dedicated cloud services will see a major uptake in India in the coming few years. By 2024, in response to the performance, security, and compliance requirements, 40% of organisations will implement dedicated cloud services either on-premises or in a service provider facility, predicts IDC.

This is among the top 10 predictions by IDC in its latest report IDC FutureScape: Worldwide Cloud 2022 Predictions – India Implications.

Indian enterprises are considering the use of a combination of solutions from public cloud service and traditional infrastructure software/equipment providers. This will allow them to gain the benefits of security and control of a private cloud along with the elasticity of a public cloud.

Overall, organisations in India have progressed from leveraging the cloud as an alternative IT purchasing model to now leveraging the cloud as both a technology platform and an operational model.

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.

“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 the cloud for achieving agility, flexibility, and innovation,” says Rishu Sharma, Associate Research Director, Cloud and AI – IDC India.

Below are a few of the India Cloud predictions that would impact the technology buyers and suppliers in 2022 and beyond:

App Modernization: By 2025, the majority of legacy applications will receive some modernization investment, with cloud services used by 50% of the applications to extend functionality or replace inefficient code. 

Dedicated Cloud: By 2024, in response to performance, security, and compliance requirements, 40% of organisations will deploy dedicated cloud services either on-premises or in a service provider facility.

Application/Workload Mobility: By 2025, 40% of organisations will use applications built on abstraction provided by managed services including cloud-native technologies to enable consistency in running in any and many locations.

Telco + Cloud: 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.

Cloud Sustainability: By 2026, 50% of organisations will use software and cloud-based infrastructures to create a 35% increase in sustainable efficiencies across workloads and data centres.

“With cloud playing a key role in supporting the delivery of needed resources to businesses amid the rapid DX, Indian organisations are looking for solutions to achieve scalability, cost efficiency, and resilience to achieve business goals,” says Swapnil Shende, Senior Market Analyst, Cloud and AI – IDC India.

“Cloud thus becomes critical in meeting these enterprise objectives,” adds Shende.
