50% of Indian enterprises will operate in a hybrid multi-cloud environment by 2021: IDC

PUNE: Half of the enterprises in India will operate in a hybrid multi-cloud environment by 2021, according to global market intelligence firm International Data Corporation (IDC).

With 95% of organizations planning to increase their cloud spend in the coming 12 months, the adoption of cloud technologies is pertinent for enterprises of all sizes, IDC said as part of its Worldwide Cloud Predictions for 2020 and beyond.

“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. Cloud will become the enabler for all things digital but will bring in challenges associated with the management of multiple clouds and traditional systems,” said Rishu Sharma, Principal Analyst, Cloud and Artificial Intelligence, IDC India.

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

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.

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

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