By 2025, 95% of new digital workloads will be deployed on cloud-native platforms, against 30% in 2021.
The ongoing pandemic and the surge in digital services are making the cloud the centrepiece of new digital experiences.
Cloud has enabled new digital experiences such as mobile payment systems where banks have invested in startups, energy companies using the cloud to improve their customers’ retail experiences or car companies launching new personalisation services for customer’s safety and infotainment, he added.
Global spending on Cloud infrastructure increased 6.6% (on-year) in the third quarter of 2021 to $18.6 billion and for the full year 2021, IDC forecasts cloud infrastructure spending to grow 8.3% compared to 2020 to $71.8 billion.
The Asia/Pacific subregions, Canada, and the Europe subregions saw double-digit growth in spending, while Latin America, the Middle East and Africa, and the US saw more moderate single-digit increases in spending.
“There is no business strategy without a cloud strategy. The adoption and interest in the public cloud continue unabated as organisations pursue a “cloud-first” policy for onboarding new workloads,” said Milind Govekar, distinguished vice president at Gartner.
“In the coming years, we will see a growing focus on developing smart hybrid cloud strategies that allow businesses take advantage of the strategic implications of a hybrid approach that balance costs, performance, security, compliance, and governance requirements,” Ramesh Kalanje, Vice President, Center of Excellence, Commvault said.
