Because of the cloud’s ability to improve security and agility in today’s ecosystem, IT companies are increasingly relying on it. According to one industry report, 89% of organisations have a multi-cloud strategy and 80% use a hybrid approach. The cloud computing market in India is expanding, with 53% of organisations increasing their cloud adoption last year, with healthcare (53%), and pharmaceutical (49%), being the leading sectors.
Companies that use cloud platforms launch new products and services 20-40% faster. It enables businesses to scale their workloads in response to demand. Furthermore, increased automation improves performance and efficiency. The cloud improves workplace productivity by allowing organisations to support their remote and distributed employees. According to reports, global sales of collaboration applications increased by 28.4% in 2021, reaching INR 2910 crore. By 2026, this figure could rise to INR 6380 crore.
Furthermore, corporations store 60% of their data in the cloud, giving them greater control over their data and reducing risk. Enterprises can decide where to store their data based on compliance, security, and policy considerations. A hybrid environment also standardises cloud storage.
The first step is to rethink how you will manage applications and workloads with the most available resources. You then right-size those resources to maintain cost efficiencies while effectively meeting new application resource demands. The results will take time, but such a hybrid cloud foundation will assist organisations in rethinking their IT services roadmap. Enterprises require self-service IT solutions across virtual machines and containers. They must assess and proceed with the application services to be migrated.
Defining hybrid cloud operational expectations
Hybrid-cloud experiences cover the entire spectrum of cloud solutions. If a company uses a hyperscaler cloud, a simple request through the provider’s API will result in a couple of servers ready to use in minutes. Organizations should place a premium on that level of expertise.
