More APAC SMBs To Adopt Cloud Computing In 2011

More SMBs to Adopt Cloud in 2011

Popularity of Cloud Computing is increasing in Asia-Pacific (excluding Japan) (APAC) region and a newly released research conducted by AMI-Partners shows that Cloud Computing market for SMBs in this region will hit US$11.4B in 2011. Apparently, SMBs have recognized the tremendous opportunities offered by Cloud and are therefore decided to pump US$11.4 billion into cloud computing solutions.

This year is set to a profitable year for solution vendors in APAC region as AMI forecasts the market for cloud solutions to grow at more than twice the rate of traditional ICT technologies.

SMBs in Korea, China, and Australia are the countries that will make the maximum investment in cloud this year. AMI has identified China and India to be the strongest nations in terms of growth among APAC economies.

The growth momentum will continue next year and this region will lead worldwide expansion of cloud computing markets in the coming months.

With increasingly favorable economic and infrastructural conditions, ASEAN markets such as Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia provide strong annual growth potential,” said Singapore-based Stefan Haas, consulting director Asia-Pacific at AMI. “The proliferation of broadband internet and high-speed mobile networks provides these SMBs with an increasing number of options to access cloud solutions. This allows a completely new segment of SMBs to adopt ICT functionality for the first time especially in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities.

SMBs in the APAC region have clearly realized the strategic advantages of transitioning into the cloud. While MBs can take advantage of cloud technologies to further optimize their IT budgets and overall cost structure, SBs can deploy for the first time new Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and SaaS capabilities that previously would have required significant upfront and maintenance investments,” continued Haas. “Our findings also show that once a company has started its journey into the cloud and has deployed the first-use case successfully, they are very likely to explore broader use of additional cloud infrastructure and application solutions.”
