- Hybrid cloud adoption continues to grow on the back of multi-cloud, with 60-70% of the Global 2000 organizations adopting 3.5 clouds on average. The SaaS market, at over USD 100 B annual run rate, is witnessing a transition towards more industry-specific solutions. IaaS and PaaS are growing faster than SaaS, albeit on a smaller base.
- Industries that require high bandwidth, such as Telecom, Media & Communication, and those that are geographically dispersed, such as Manufacturing, Banking, and Healthcare & Life Sciences (together constitute 55% of the hybrid enterprise cloud revenue), remain major adopters of hybrid enterprise cloud. However, highly regulated industries like financial services and the government sector are gaining strong traction.
- Progressive enterprises dealing with increasing multi-cloud complexities are leveraging an array of leading cloud management platforms (CMPs). Consequently, leading technology companies have made significant investments to acquire niche CMP providers. Even Cloud System Integrators (SIs) are investing (around 35% of the overall investment budget are attributed to IP development) in developing CMPs.
- Seamless workload portability and application deployment have led to growth in container adoption, and container tools have now become a prerequisite for optimal cloud strategy. Technology companies have also accelerated container offerings in the past 24 months, complemented with massive acquisitions.
- To capitalize on hybrid cloud opportunities worldwide, Cloud SIs are significantly investing in human capital development (~19%) and deepening provider partnership ecosystem (~16%). Additionally, they are developing a plethora of industry-wide use cases and taking them to their loyal customer base.
