Asia-Pacific Multi-Cloud Computing Apps Growth
The senior executive’s quest for meaningful and substantive digital business transformation in the Asia-Pacific region has gained new momentum in 2022. Expectations for digital business model growth are fueling the demand for innovation.
Business leaders are considering the next advancement of cloud computing adoption in terms of technology and services to reap benefits beyond cost reduction and IT team productivity, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC).
Multi-Cloud Market Development
“With the multi-cloud environment becoming more manageable, organizations are loving the openness towards having workload portability and getting the best out of their cloud strategy without worrying about challenges of complexities, vendor lock-in, data privacy or governance,” said Shahnawas Latiff, research manager at IDC.
Organizations in the Asia-Pacific region are already experiencing a transformation from a technology and services implementation point and are advancing their investment considering the future innovation needs.
Cloud computing and public cloud service capabilities are imminent investments that enable organizations to differentiate themselves and give them a competitive edge.
IT vendor ecosystem partners and professional service providers offer specialized capabilities to cloud service providers, who are otherwise becoming commoditized by their bare minimum solutions or service.
IDC’s survey findings indicate different levels of cloud computing maturity in terms of a country’s adoption, investments, capabilities, and expected business outcomes.
Though many enterprise organizations have a multi-cloud strategy, they are not using the full capability of those ongoing public cloud investments.
This is now starting to change with service support around issues concerning data privacy, security, governance, complexity, skill availability, and workload portability between the different cloud providers.
According to the IDC assessment, public cloud service providers are exploring several areas to create a competitive advantage and new revenue growth opportunities within the Asia-Pacific region.
These expanding areas of upside growth opportunities are around the extension of cloud Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS).
Outlook for Multi-Cloud Enterprise Applications Growth
Beyond infrastructure and platform offerings, they’re exploring cloud edge computing, multi-cloud integration, cloud governance, and deeper cloud ecosystem partnerships.
That said, I anticipate changing service-level agreements arising from a complex multi-cloud computing environment will need closer integration among service providers and technology consultants to enable the customer’s desired business outcomes.
