Why an Open, Hybrid Cloud Architecture is essential to your customer’s experienceunwiredcp
If the pace of the pre-coronavirus world seemed fast, then time, in an evolutionary sense, post the pandemic seems to have transgressed further. Businesses that once mapped digital strategy in one- to three-year phases must now scale their initiatives in a matter of weeks.
In short digital transformation is no longer an option.
Now more than ever, organisations are relying on digital interactions, expecting them to be seamless and secure. Businesses in every single industry are working quickly to develop new and expanded ways to digitally engage with their customers while accelerating their shift to the cloud.
A recent study by the IBM Institute found that Indian firms allocated about 17% of their IT spend towards Cloud and they intend to increase the share of spend on hybrid Cloud from 42% to 49 % by 2023. The majority of their cloud budgets are being allocated to hybrid cloud platforms even as their public cloud spend is set to reduce from 50% today to 43% in the same time period.
Some of the other benefits of cloud computing includes — faster deployment, enhanced security, remote and always-on monitoring, and reduced footprint.
