VMware and Frost & Sullivan have released the Hybrid Cloud Maturity Index (HCMI) 2019 assessment of enterprises. In 2019, 300 enterprises were surveyed on their competence and capability in Hybrid Cloud adoption against a set of technology and strategic excellence criteria.
According to the assessment, Enterprises realize that cloud is a critical foundation for digital transformation, therefore, more than 70% of enterprises surveyed have already started to use cloud services. However, only 24% of these enterprises in India currently have well-defined strategic objectives aligned to migrating applications to the cloud (SaaS, IaaS, PaaS).
“From the enterprises that we assessed, we saw that although Public Cloud is the most used model, Hybrid Cloud is expected to be an industry standard within the coming years and is expected to nearly double in next 2-3 years,” said Apalak Ghosh, Program Manager and Head of Cloud Computing, Frost & Sullivan.
“Hybrid cloud are unlocking unprecedented opportunities for businesses to leverage nearly infinite resources across the data center, cloud and edge. IT organizations are increasingly turning to Hybrid Cloud to empower their businesses to deliver the optimal environment for all their applications. The Hybrid Cloud Maturity Index (HCMI) assessment underlines the eagerness of Indian enterprises looking to embrace Hybrid Cloud with adoption likely to double in the next 2-3 years. This is because Hybrid Cloud provides a high level of security, control, and performance while maintaining flexibility, scalability, and economies of scale,” said BS Nagarajan, Senior Director and Chief Technologies, VMware India.
