Opinion: Resilience Through Uncharted Waters in the ‘new normal’

What is the importance of digitally pivoting at a time of crisis? And is the switch to an OPEX model inevitable? Read on for insights from Levent Tavsanci, the Head of Applications at Oracle in Singapore.

The ongoing economic and humanitarian crisis has caught everyone off guard. The global lockdown in some of the largest economies has led to an unforeseen break in economic activity. While governments are taking cautious steps with gradual lifting of lockdowns, we are confronted with a new normal. Over the next few months, we will witness the unveiling of this new normal and its impact on businesses. However, one thing is clear, the new normal is going to be far more digital, it’s going to elevate individuals’ and corporations’ transacting models to higher levels of automation and connectivity.

The territory ahead is uncharted, so it becomes imperative for organisations to understand and develop ways to create value out of every organisational function. Expertise and acquired skills can help alleviate risks and rebuild efforts for businesses and communities alike. At the same time, the situation presents a significant opportunity for companies to: rethink and reconsider; to challenge conventional thinking; to encourage innovation and creativity. All businesses rely on the effectiveness of their Business Continuity Plan (BCP) to maintain essential functions during and after any crisis situation. If an organisation does not have one, it is time to go back to the drawing board.

Rebuilding foundations for the future

I have been talking to many of our customers over the last few months and have observed that now, more than ever, organisations are realising the need for a strong digital foundation. They are reimagining business resiliency and fine-tuning business continuity plans based on strong foundations provided by new-age digital technologies. Businesses are progressively looking to new frontiers such as cloud and artificial intelligence to ensure business continuity. 

Take for instance, Beyonics, a leading global precision manufacturer, found monthly financial consolidations and reporting, manually undertaken, becoming increasingly laborious. The lack of financial and operational analytics was getting in the way of truly effective business decision making; putting the company in the position of reacting to information, rather than proacting to events, trends, and external influences, to drive the business forward continuously. 

To alleviate this, Beyonics embarked on a business transformation program to adopt Oracle Cloud as a core driver in both its digital transformation and its pursuance of an Industry 4.0 operational strategy. Oracle Cloud ERP provides the organisation with real-time knowledge of its financial, operational, and competitive position at any one time, and continuously.

Gearing up for success

The current reality that organisations are facing makes it an opportune time for them to take a pragmatic view of their IT infrastructure and assess whether they have built a resilient business model that can quickly adapt to future disruptions. Switching to an OPEX model is inevitable, leading to increased usage of cloud-based services. Consumer demand for digital solutions has never been greater, however with the overall transaction volume low, the opportunity to build improved digital platforms has never been greater.

Nonetheless, before fast-tracking their digital transformation, business leaders need to take a step back and re-evaluate their roadmaps and beliefs about their underlying value and feasibility. These evaluations need to be based on current and still emerging customer behaviours, supplier dynamics, and industry regulations. According to a recent McKinsey study, digital interaction with B2B customers is now two times more important than traditional channels—more than a 30% jump since before the crisis. 

In conclusion, I’d like to leave this thought – the future is unknown, but not dark. We have seen some remarkable instances of human resilience over the past few months. Amidst us are visionaries who are finding ways through data analytics and automation, to use new types and sources of data to generate value. Recovery may still be out of sight, but it will come and businesses who will be best prepared for this digital future will have the best chance for not just survival, but a brighter future.

Court rules mostly in favour of Oracle during Rimini Street copyright infringement battle

The District Court in Nevada, USA, has ruled in favour of Oracle on a number of motions during the Rimini Street, Inc. v. Oracle International battle.

The Court found that certain past Rimini Street third-party support practices infringed at least 17 Oracle copyrights. On top of that, certain support practices that Rimini Street described as ‘new’ were also found to continue infringing upon Oracle copyrights.

“We are grateful for the Court’s thorough and well-reasoned opinion, which finds that Rimini Street infringed in the past, and continues to infringe Oracle’s intellectual property,” said Dorian Daley, Oracle’s Executive Vice President and General Counsel in a press release by the tech giant.

Oracle stated that the court dismissed various Rimini Street claims and defenses, which means that Rimini Street will have no claims for damages, while Oracle will proceed with numerous damages claims when the case goes to trial.

“Customers considering Rimini Street should understand that this serial infringer continues to disregard Oracle’s copyrights, and we’ll be seeking additional substantial damages at trial for this unlawful conduct,” said Mr. Daley.

Rimini Street retains right to provide aftermarket support

During the ruling, the Court was said to reiterate Rimini Street’s legal right to still provide aftermarket support for Oracle’s enterprise software, which has been adopted by the likes of Kakao in South Korea, Hyundai-Kia Motors and Proton in Malaysia.

“The Court also resolved some of the issues the parties have disputed, ruling in some instances for Rimini Street and in some instances for Oracle. Rimini Street is continuing to evaluate the order and looks forward to a jury trial on the remaining issues,” said Rimini Street in a press release.

In total, Oracle stated the District Court for the District of Nevada ruled in their favour on seven separate motions for partial summary judgment, granting in full or in part every Oracle motion and denying in full every Rimini Street motion.

The Rimini Street, Inc. v. Oracle International lawsuit was officially brought by Rimini Street against Oracle in 2014, and the summary judgements delivered yesterday (September 15 2020) had been pending with the court since December 2018.

Oracle and Rimini Street have been caught in a legal battle since January 2010. Oracle filed the suit against Rimini Street alleging software copyright violations. 

A jury ruled in favour of Oracle in 2015 on one count of “innocent infringement” meaning that Rimini Street did not deliberately infringe on copyright laws. 

A United States District Court in Nevada handed Rimini Street a permanent injunction in August 2018 ordering Rimini Street to not reproduce or distribute Oracle software. This court battle has led to Rimini Street paying out more than US$100 million to Oracle.

Google sets unprecedented goal to power data centers with 100% renewable energy by 2030

Google sets unprecedented goal to power data centers with 100% renewable energy by 2030

Google sets unprecedented goal to power data centers with 100% renewable energy by 2030

Google announced on Monday 14 September it will aim to power all of its data centers and offices with 100% renewable energy by 2030.

The new goal has positioned the tech giant as the biggest company in the world to commit to ditching coal and natural gas power, according to Reuters

“The problem is so immense, many of us need to lead the way and show solutions. We’re one small player in this but we can set an example,” said Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Alphabet, Google’s parent company.

Google will be forced to move beyond the tech industry norms of offsetting carbon emissions from electricity use, requiring technological and political breakthroughs to achieve this stretch goal. But Mr. Pichai is confident they will reach it by 2030, but declined to share the cost of achieving the goal.

“To plan 24/7 hourly being carbon-free in our data centers and campuses around the world, we see an enormous logistics challenge, which is why we’ve been hard at work modeling the last year how to get there,” Mr. Pichai said.

Wildfires burning a record area in the western United States this month have increased public awareness of climate change, Pichai said, and Google wants to bring further attention through its new goal as well as product features.

Wind, solar and other renewable sources accounted for 61% of Google’s global hourly electricity usage last year, but in Singapore, only 3% was fulfilled by carbon-free sources.

But Google has grown optimistic that it can bridge the renewable energy gap with batteries to store solar power overnight, emerging sources such as geothermal reservoirs and better management of power needs.

Rivals, Microsoft and Amazon, have also targeted removing more carbon from the atmosphere than they emit over the coming decades, but none of them have publicly set a goal to stop sourcing carbon-based energy.

But the companies share a common goal of encouraging businesses and governments to curb climate pollution before 2030, when scientists say global warming could become catastrophic if unchecked.

Jennifer Layke, global director at research group World Resources Institute, which has received Google funding, said the company inspired others in the United States and Europe over the last decade. However, Google efforts must now spur action in crucial polluting regions such as China, India, Vietnam and Indonesia, where Google has just opened a new cloud region.

“If we can’t shift from carbon, we will suffer the firestorms and the droughts,” Ms. Layke said.

Google has been carbon-neutral since 2007, meaning it has planted trees, bought carbon credits and funded large amounts of wind power in places where it is abundant to offset its tapping of coal and natural gas power in other regions. It also said that its estimated one million metric tons of emissions between 2006 and its 1998 launch now have been offset.

Google has introduced new goals, including a plan to bring five gigawatts of renewable energy near some suppliers, funding tree planting beyond its offset needs and sharing data or forging partnerships with 500 governments around the world to try to cut one gigaton of carbon emissions annually by 2030.

Google said it would continue to offset carbon emissions unrelated to electricity use, such as from employee travel.

Its carbon-free electricity goal satisfies one demand of 2,000 Google employees who last November petitioned the company to stop selling data storage and other cloud computing tools to oil companies.

Pichai said the company would continue to ‘support everyone’ with its cloud services and help oil and gas companies transition to tapping other sources.

Google also recently announced new plans to build their third data center in Taiwan, but plans to use renewable energy sources have not been confirmed.

Microsoft Vs. Sony: Xbox cloud gaming to launch tomorrow

Microsoft Vs. Sony: Xbox cloud gaming to launch tomorrow

Microsoft is set to launch its Xbox cloud gaming service tomorrow across 22 countries, including the US, Canada, South Korea and more in Europe.

With the promise to empower gaming anywhere on any device, the new service is a major drive to attract less competitive, casual gamers.

Low latency up in the air

Content is king for gaming, which is why a games library is key for cloud gaming success.  Subscribers will be able to play more than 150 games, including hit titles like “Sea of Thieves” and “Gears 5” via the cloud on Xbox consoles, Android (not Apple) devices and PCs. 

But with the games running completely on the cloud, it will be crucial to have digital infrastructures that ensure fast Internet connections, low latency and lag for the best user experience.

“We built this experience so that it requires as little bandwidth as possible,” said Kareem Choudhry, Microsoft’s Head of Cloud Gaming. 

Microsoft is working with Internet Service Providers around the world to ensure strong connectivity between gamers through their Azure data centers.

In South Korea, Microsoft partnered with SK Telecom to enable the cloud gaming technology through their leading 5G technology, which is predicted to be a significant driver in speeding up cloud gaming adoption – even Globe Telecom in the Philippines is getting in on the action by successfully testing their 5G technology for cloud gaming.

Analysts are expecting demand for immersive experiences through better sound and graphics to drive sales of next-generation consoles released by Microsoft and Sony this year, which are predicted to be released in time for the highly competitive Christmas period.

According to Guilherme Fernandes, an Analyst at gaming analysis firm Newzoo, Cloud gaming revenue is expected to grow to $4.8 billion by 2023, with nearly $600 million this year.

Sony already provides a cloud gaming service on Playstation Now, but this is not yet available on mobile devices.

As the COVID-19 pandemic has forced many into their homes, leading to a huge uptake in gaming to pass the time, Microsoft is banking on offering users many ways to play through the cloud service and consoles at different price points to give it an edge.

The Xbox Game Pass service currently has more than 10 million members. More countries are slated to get the Xbox cloud gaming service at a later date, though specific details have not been given at this time.

Microsoft awards Enfrasys for digital transformation efforts in Malaysia during pandemic

When Malaysia enforced a month-long Movement Control Order in June, many enterprises were hit hard, but tech company Enfrasys Consulting was one of the few that prospered.

As Malaysians began to work remotely by the time the country entered lockdown, problems arose. Businesses needed to upgrade existing softwares, and organisations that were underprepared became vulnerable to cybercrime.

This is where Enfrasys stepped in. During the MCO, the company worked closely with organisations under Malaysia’s Ministry of Finance and in the financial services industry. 

As a partner of Microsoft, Enfrasys introduced clients to new tools such as Windows Virtual Desktop, Microsoft Azure Advanced Threat Protection and Microsoft Cloud App Security that provided efficiency and security in the workplace. 

In recognition of their digital transformation efforts and their outstanding year-on-year business growth of 138.6%, Microsoft awarded Enfrasys with the title of Microsoft Partner of the Year for Malaysia.

“Winning the Microsoft Partner of the Year award for Malaysia is an incredible accomplishment for us, and we remain committed as always, to empowering Malaysian businesses and accelerating digitalization in the country,” said Beh Chor How, Managing Director of Enfrasys.

Enfrasys also made commendable progress in cloud computing and automation.The homegrown tech company in Malaysia introduced Azure CycleCloud and Azure Arc to promote hybrid cloud, boost the scalability of data servers and enhance computational power.

“These partners go above and beyond, delivering timely solutions that solve the complex challenges that businesses around the world face,” said Gavriella Schuster, the Corporate Vice President for One Commercial Partner at Microsoft.

This is the second time that Enfrasys has been awarded Partner of the Year. The first was in 2018.

TikTok owner ByteDance to invest billions in Singapore, but new data center reports untrue

ByteDance, the owner of TikTok, is reportedly planning to invest billions of dollars and recruit hundreds in Singapore as part of its global expansion, according to people familiar with the matter.

However, contrary to reports by Bloomberg, plans by ByteDance to set up a new data center in Singapore is untrue, a source said to Reuters.

The source also said that the Beijing-based firm has ‘stepped up the purchase of cloud computing servers in Singapore to backup data based in the US for contingency in the event of an incident.

The investment by ByteDance is expected to span over the next three years, coming at a time when the Chinese multinational internet technology company is being forced to sell their US operations of the hugely popular social networking service, TikTok. 

But it is unlikely they will meet the deadline of September 20 to sell their assets imposed by President Donald Trump, as new Chinese regulations have complicated negotiations with bidders Microsoft and Oracle.

Southeast Asia is a primary target for Zhang Yiming, the founder of ByteDance, as the region has 650 million smartphone-savvy population where competitors Alibaba and Tencent are making significant inroads.

“Singapore is highly attractive to tech firms looking for a hub to address the Southeast Asian markets due to geographic proximity. The workforce is highly educated, tech savvy and multilingual,” said Bloomberg Intelligence analyst Vey-Sern Ling.

ByteDance, the world’s most richly valued startup, currently has more than 200 job openings and 400 current employees in Singapore. And a company source reported to Reuters that TikTok had started to move some of its engineers from China to Singapore this year.

In other news, Chindata Group, a carrier-neutral hyperscale data center solution provider in Asia Pacific, confirmed on 9 September 2020 it will publicly file an initial public offering in the United States of America. 

In the filing, ByteDance accounted for 68.2% and 81.6% of Chindata’s total revenues in 2019 and for the first six months of June respectively. In 2019, the revenue from ByteDance was at US$82.3 million, and in the first six months of 2020 along, ByteDance accounted for US$93.6 million of Chindata’s revenue.

VMWare upgrades cloud solutions in the Philippines to support businesses during COVID-19 pandemic

VMWare upgrades cloud solutions in the Philippines to support businesses during COVID-19 pandemic

VMWare upgrades cloud solutions in the Philippines to support businesses during COVID-19 pandemic

As the COVID-19 infection numbers continue to fluctuate and lockdowns put a strain on businesses in the Philippines, VMWare has introduced a series of new work-from-home cloud solutions to provide support during the pandemic.

The new innovations come at a time when the Philippines is adapting to a mobile and digital-first economy in order to cope with the evolving situation.

“In this new normal, customers need employees who are able to work seamlessly in a secure environment, anywhere, anytime,” said Walter So, the Country Manager of VMware Philippines.

Since the COVID-19 numbers began to rise, at least 100 establishments in the country and more than 10,000 employees across education, retail and commerce have benefited from VMWare’s Workspace ONE remote working solutions.

Adding to the solution, a number of new features have been announced to provide employees with more secure digital workspaces across any devices, which is becoming increasingly important as cyberattacks are becoming more common during the pandemic.

“Whether it is for work-from-home, on cloud or on security, all these solutions are relevant for all sectors,” said Sanjay K. Deshmukh, VMWare’s Managing Director for Southeast Asia and Korea.

The US-based cloud solutions company also announced VMWare SD-WAN by VevoCloud, a new cloud solution that would provide businesses with increased bandwidth. This means that businesses would be able to access cloud services and private data centers at greater speeds, enabling enhanced network scalability.

In partnership with Google Cloud and AWS, VMWare has expanded its access and lowered the costs of migration to their solutions for businesses in the Philippines by delivering the full stack of software on the cloud giants’ engines.

“In the past few months, [our partners] have helped to set up remote working capabilities, architect cloud and app infrastructure, and deploy intrinsic security solutions for many in a matter of weeks, and sometimes sooner,” said Mr. So.

VMWare’s new innovations will be delivered through their partner ecosystem across the Philippines.

“We are extremely grateful for their tireless efforts,” added Mr. So.

To upgrade security measures, VMWare introduced Carbon Black Cloud, a cloud native endpoint protection platform that would allow IT teams to detect, respond and prevent malware threats in real-time.

Following reports earlier in the year that VMWare vRealize Automation Cloud Service had been released in Singapore, the service is now available in the Philippines, too.

Some of the top companies in the Philippines are using VMWare’s cloud solutions, including local telecommunications giant Globe Telecommunications, Metrobank, the country’s second largest bank as well as Integrated Computer Systems, AMTI, MDi and VST ECS Phils Inc.

New Microsoft partnership and cloud solutions: 4 biggest announcements from Nutanix global conference

Nutanix, a leader in enterprise cloud computing, has revealed a number of major announcements at its .NEXT Conference, including new strides in its partnerships and multicloud and hybrid cloud service offerings.

1. Nutanix partners with Microsoft Azure

Nutanix released the news they will be working with Microsoft Azure on a partnership that will allow a seamless delivery of hybrid and multicloud solutions, bringing about increased agility and unified management across on-premises and Azure environments using Nutanix Clusters.

“We know customers are looking for solutions to truly, and simply, advance their cloud journey. This partnership helps us deliver a single software stack across public and private clouds,” said Tarkan Maner, the Chief Commercial Officer at Nutanix.

As part of this collaboration, users on Nutanix Cluster will be provided with a security upgrade along with the option to deploy and manage Microsoft’s cloud computing platform from Nutanix Cluster’s management interface. 

“Many companies face complexities when managing hybrid cloud environments across private and public clouds,” said Scott Guthrie, the Executive Vice President for Cloud and AI at Microsoft Corporation.

With the aim of streamlining these processes, customers will be empowered with the ability to manage servers, containers, and data services on Nutanix’s hyperconverged infrastructure software (HCI), on-premise or in Azure through the Azure Arc control plane using Kubernetes.

“I envision this hybrid cloud solution will accelerate our teams’ ability to try new innovative ideas and bring them to our customers, by increasing agility, scalability and reliability while reducing risk,” said Ken Shaffer, AVP Technology at CarMax.

An improved sales and support experience is also part of the deal. Nutanix customers will be able to port their existing term licenses to Nutanix Clusters on Azure or get on-demand consumption of Nutanix software through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace; while Microsoft Azure customers will be able to use their existing Azure credits to purchase Nutanix software.

The flexibility of solutions makes unified hybrid cloud an appealing option for organisations where technology is critical for their daily operations.

“At United Network for Organ Sharing, technology is vital in support of our mission. Technology makes it possible to match life-saving donor organs to transplant candidates,” said Tiwan Nicholson, the Director of IT Service Operations at the United Network for Organ Sharing.

A unified hybrid cloud solution was ideal for the United Network for Organ Sharing by bridging private and public clouds to create a reliable, scalable and flexible IT infrastructure.

2. Nutanix launches a new Kubernetes multicloud PaaS

And on the topic of Kubernetes, Nutanix announced a new multicloud Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) based on open-source system.

The service, known as Karbon Platform Services, is designed to accelerate the deployment and development of microservices-based applications like Grab, Netflix and Amazon across any cloud platform.

“IT resources are the engines that power digital enterprises. But as a company scales, adopts hybrid cloud, and manages an increasing number of applications, supporting engineering needs can be challenging for IT,” said Rajiv Mirani, the CTO at Nutanix.

The offering provides a turnkey managed services experience along with automated security and multi-tenancy​ for software developers looking to build cloud native apps whilst decoupling them from underlying infrastructures.

“We were looking for a single PaaS platform that could host our Reflex and Vision Insights on both the edge and in our private cloud, to take advantage of both a distributed architecture as well as support software development and machine training on the public cloud,” said Damien Pasquinelli, the CTO at Hardis Group.

With IT resources being the engine that powers digital enterprises, the infrastructures need to keep up with businesses scaling up and adopting new technologies without compromising their ability to manage data, applications, and IT resources simply and effectively. 

In a statement by Nutanix, the company identified Kubernetes as a rapidly evolving ecosystem of cloud native technologies that brings with it difficulties to implement without extensive technical resources.

“The complexities of Kubernetes and multicloud infrastructure management can not only overwhelm IT operations teams, but also limit the resources and tooling available to modern application software developers,”  said Bob Laliberte, the Practice Director and Senior Analyst at ESG Research.

A recent survey by ESG revealed that 70% of customers prefer a combination of public cloud and private data centers for containerised applications, making flexible multicloud solutions ideal.

Nutanix’s Karbon Platform Services represents a significant milestone for the company, as it looks to expand offerings aimed at accelerating enterprises’ cloud native journeys and simplifying application lifecycles.

3. New major HCI software capabilities

During their NEXT Conference, Nutanix also announced enhanced capabilities in its existing HCI software by extending its stack to the public cloud.

“HCI has become the standard for powering modern private clouds … Today’s announcement highlights Nutanix’s commitment to innovation to meet emerging customer requirements and further disrupt the industry status quo,” said Nutanix in a statement.

By utilising the latest storage technology, including NVMe based SSDs and Intel Optane SSDs, customers are purported to be able to reduce latency and power up workload performance by 50%.

“The advanced performance capabilities … will deliver our joint customers with the HCI solutions they need to support their most intensive applications, allowing them to more readily innovate and develop new business models,” said Chris Tobias, the General Manager for Optane Solutions Division at Intel.

On top of this, the new HCI improvements will support the increasingly common Zero-Trust security strategies through Nutanix’s Flow Security Central.

Rather than automatically trusting users, these strategies require granular network policy controls and the ability to monitor and update those controls in real-time to verify all that attempt to connect to a system.

However, many organisations struggle with application visibility and unified security management, according to Nutanix. To solve this, Security Central aims to provide a security hub for greater network visibility that can help IT teams assess the overall security of their deployments.

On top of that, Nutanix has made significant investments in research and development of their core software, with Flow Networking to simplify the creation of software-defined networks that connect apps running in private data centers and in the public cloud as well as Prism Ultimate, a solution used to troubleshoot application-related infrastructure bottlenecks and resource consumption visibility.

4. A New Global Partner Multicloud Program

To bring together all of Nutanix’s partner ecosystems for the very first time and further enable innovation using the above solutions, Nutanix launched its new global partner program known as Elevate.

Through a significant double-digit increase in investment by Nutanix, their partners, from service providers, telcos, hypersales and vendors, will come under one integrated architecture using a consistent set of tools, resources and marketing platforms.

“Our vision has always been about simplicity, from the technology we innovate to the way we do business, and Elevate will deliver that vision to the entire partner ecosystem – enabling them to leverage market shifts toward subscription-based, multi-product, multicloud delivery of IT for their customers,” said Christian Alvarez, Nutanix’s Senior Vice President of Worldwide Channels.

Nutanix partners include Berca in Indonesia, CTC Global in Malaysia, Questronix Corp in the Philippines, StarHub in Singapore, Fujitsu in Thailand, and Terralogic in Vietnam.

NTT helps 1,000 employees at Indonesia’s WOM Finance move to the cloud with Google’s G Suite

Indonesia’s Wahana Ottomitra Multiartha (WOM Finance) has successfully migrated to Google’s cloud-native platform G Suites with the help of NTT.

The global technology services provider NTT helped more than 1,000 employees at the Jakarta-based financial services provider move from their legacy mail server to G Suite within a month to accelerate their access to intelligent cloud-based apps. This signals the company’s commitment to implementing digital transformation in the workplace. 

“By going digital, we can make faster decisions in a safe and secure manner that will translate into better customer experience,” said Anthony Y. Panggabean, Director of WOM Finance.

Prior to the transition, WOM Finance’s daily operations were restricted by a mail server that was unable to handle scaling up to meet growing business demands. The lack of a centralised communications platform also meant that correspondence between employees were carried out independently “without explicit IT department approval”.

With Google G Suites being introduced to the workplace, WOM Finance’s business activities are now condensed in a single platform. 

Felix Priscellius, IT Division Head for WOM Finance, said they have experienced cost savings, less downtime and greater security, enabling them to scale up as quickly as the business grows.

In a time where remote and mobile-first working environments are more common than ever, WOM Finance’s digital transformation is a prime example of how cloud-based technologies are being adopted at a rapid pace with the help of cloud-based experts.

“We are truly excited about empowering WOM Finance on their workplace transformation journey to discover more dynamic ways to collaborate securely,” said Hendra Lesmana, the CEO for NTT Indonesia Solutions.

NTT has made many strides this year to expand their digital footprint and strengthen their cloud strategies through partnerships with Megaport and Microsoft.

Is India ready for a hybrid cloud future?

Is India ready for a hybrid cloud future?

Is India ready for a hybrid cloud future?

Multinational tech company IBM published its September report on hybrid cloud market in India, revealing that the country’s businesses are ready to embrace hybrid cloud driven growth. 

IBM projects that spending on cloud systems in India will increase by 49% in 2023. But currently only 20% of organisations have moved their workloads to the cloud, despite 90% of global companies adopting a form of the technology.

What is hybrid cloud?

Hybrid cloud is essentially a combination of public cloud and private cloud systems, allowing data to be shared between them. Using a hybrid cloud system accelerates key business operations by harnessing data for improved decision making, enhanced process automation and higher cost efficiency.

IBM estimates that the value derived from using a full hybrid and multicloud platform delivers 2.5 times more than a single platform and vendor approach, but only 29% of businesses in India take advantage of a multicloud strategy.

While businesses in India still fall behind in hybrid cloud adoption compared to international standards, the tech giant’s report predicts the size of the Indian market will come to prove in time the importance of turning to cloud management platforms for increased governance and efficiency.

One of the biggest challenges of digitally transforming operations is achieving buy-in from stakeholders and ensuring employees have ample skills to transition to the new technology. But IBM found that 51% of respondents in India understand the business and IT benefits of switching to a multicloud strategy, which might explain why a predicted average of six hybrid cloud platforms will be used by businesses in India by 2023.

Who’s adopting hybrid cloud?

Top companies in India, including Bharti Airtel, Vodafone Idea, Godrej Group and even Century Cement are leading the transformation to hybrid cloud. 

Airtel, one of India’s largest telecommunication services, is currently building a new network cloud to maximise capacity and minimise capital expenses by onboarding services faster with seamless integration with current systems. 

Vodafone Idea’s new hybrid cloud platform allows the company to deliver core network functions and implement edge computing technologies for its 300 million telecommunication subscribers at a breakthrough speed.

Indian conglomerate, Godrej Group, leveraged hybrid multicloud solutions to build a future-ready IT infrastructure, resulting in a 10% reduction of total cost of ownership and 100% increase in disaster recovery coverage.

Even cement shipping company Century Cement adopted cloud technology to connect their electronic billing processes with government systems, saving 60% more time on paperless processing and management as well as reduced operating costs.

What’s next for hybrid cloud?

The next chapter of the cloud is expected to see a shift of core business operations, optimising everything from supply chains to sales, with more investment in hybrid multicloud platforms on the way.

IBM’s advice to Indian businesses consists of five steps. First, businesses should strategise by understanding how digitally transforming to the cloud aligns with their wider operating models.

Next, the task is to design your transformation journey by understanding and coordinating the different cloud platforms available, including public cloud, private cloud and traditional IT environments.

Third, is the matter of moving to a hybrid cloud platform. IBM recommends using containers and unified open platforms to decouple the rate and pace of transformation from specific deployment models or constraints.

After the much anticipated move, it’s time to build a multicloud orchestration platform used to control costs, address security concerns and skill gaps in an organisation. It is important during the build phase to combine data and applications when building multicloud solutions.

Finally, once you have your solutions, it is important for your business to constantly manage and assess the platform with regard to cost, optimisation and regulations.

To achieve a competitive advantage, businesses have to start prioritising operations that can be moved to cloud, then migrate said skills and optimise continuously.

Aligning businesses activities with cloud platforms is the business model of the near future. Indian firms have the drive to prepare for the transition, and should do so in order to keep up with a global market reshaped by COVID-19.
