93% Indian Firms in Early Stages of Cloud Adoption

November 4, 2018


Over 93 percent of Indian organisations are still in the early stages of maturity when it comes to Cloud adoption, the International Data Corporation (IDC) said.

Compared to the Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) markets where more than 14 percent of organisations are in the latter stages of maturity, only 10 percent of the Indian organisations are in the advanced stages.

“Most organisations in India have plans to spend maximum of their new Cloud spending on Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications over the next year,” said Rishu Sharma, Associate Research Manager, Cloud and Internet of Things (IoT), IDC India.

“Organizations in India are looking for providers with deep technological expertise, along with experience across verticals, that can help them transform their businesses, providing them with business agility and increased IT security,” Rishu added.

While improving IT security and increasing business agility remain among the top expected benefits of Cloud by Indian enterprises, the challenges related to costs and complexities with infrastructure cannot be ignored.
