With organizations progressing on their digital journey, cloud has become the backbone for all new-age technologies. Accordingly, 95 percent of the organizations are planning to increase their cloud spend in the coming 12 months. The adoption of cloud technologies is ergo pertinent for enterprises of all sizes.

Ideally, as part a of its India contextualized Worldwide Cloud Predictions for 2020 & beyond, IDC (International Data Corporation) predicts that half of the enterprises in India will be operating in a hybrid multi-cloud environment by 2021.

Commenting on this revelation, Rishu Sharma, Principal Analyst, Cloud & Artificial Intelligence, IDC India, says, “Enterprises in India are looking at cloud as a key enabler to meet their business priorities. As per IDC's Cloud Pulse 2Q19, 75 percent of organizations in India have plans to invest in the cloud-based infrastructure and applications to meet their business goals. Cloud will become the enabler for all things digital but will bring in challenges associated with the management of multiple clouds & traditional systems.”

While organizations are looking at multiple clouds, they are also simultaneously dealing with the challenges of managing a hybrid multi-cloud environment. For organizations to establish a winning cloud strategy, the operational & management challenges cannot be ignored and require a strict discipline when it comes to visualize resources & manage overall performance.
