India Takes To The Cloud

India Takes To The Cloud

India is the global capital city of outsourcing. As a primary element of cloud computing, outsourcing has propagated the need for most countries to adopt cloud computing, with India being at the front line.

The role of telecommunication companies in the expansion of cloud computing is clearly indicated through the entry of Bharti Airtel into the category of service providers. Actually, the India’s largest telecommunications service provider has joined hand with Microsoft to supply elements of the office suite to small and medium enterprises in the country. In essence, this partnership is deemed an important move towards capturing the growing market for products from both companies. The emerging trend has made it possible for most organizations to access a multiplicity of goods through establishment of partnerships. Ultimately, Airtel expects to expand its data services, and Microsoft, well, continues to do what it does best. In addition to this, the Indian market has witnessed an expansion in the app market. The app market has achieved prominence following the prevalence of usage of smart phones in business and social circles. Ultimately, cloud computing is bound to expand, considering that most of the apps are hosted on online platforms.

Most tech experts are keen on monitoring the impact of cloud computing in India, considering that a huge proportion of the businesses are actually small and medium size. Research conducted by Nasscom pointed towards possibilities of the cloud computing market in India topping USD16 billion by 2020. This estimation is based on the current growth state, with the market standing at USD $ 400 million. In addition the industry is expected to be a top employer by 2015, creating over 2 million jobs in the country.

The achievement of this growth is primarily based on the ability of the country to develop befitting legal and economic enablers. As observed, the country lags behind in legal structures, specifically regarding protection of data and internet protocols as well as privacy laws. Although most organizations have been able to bypass these challenges, mass adoption of cloud computing is primarily dependent on the presence of such laws.
