Public Cloud Services will Reach $1.3 Billion in India

While it's true that cloud computing service adoption has been driven mainly by organizations in developed markets within North America, Western Europe and the Asia-Pacific regions, we're now seeing significant upside opportunities in emerging markets, such as India.

The overall public cloud services market in India is already predicted to grow by 35.9 percent in 2016, to reach a total of $1.3 billion, according to the latest market study by Gartner.

Public Cloud Market Development

The highest growth in this emerging market will come from cloud system infrastructure services  -- such as infrastructure as a service (IaaS) -- which is projected to grow by 45.5 percent in 2016.

This cloud service adoption in India is followed by platform as a service (PaaS), and Gartner analysts have projected that segment of the market will grow 33.5 percent by the end of this year.


"The overall global public cloud market will mature, and its growth rate will slightly slow down from 17.2 percent in 2016 to a 15.2 percent increase in 2020," said Sid Nag, research director at Gartner.

According to the Gartner assessment, while Brexit and other growth challenges exist, some segments such as financial software as a service (SaaS) applications and the PaaS user markets will still see strong growth through 2020.

Outlook for Ongoing Cloud Growth in India

As buyers intensify and increase IaaS activity, they will be getting more for their investment: ongoing enhancement of performance, more memory, more storage for the same money -- which will further drive growth in consumption -- and increased automation in traditional IT outsourcing delivery.

"As PaaS offerings mature and the competitive landscapes consolidates, we predict that more organizations will consider expanding their PaaS adoption as an important component to their cloud computing strategy, and specifically to their SaaS deployments," added Mr. Nag.

Digital Identity Verification Market to Reach $16.7B

As more enterprise organizations embrace the ongoing transition to digital business transformation, CIOs and CTOs are adopting new technologies that enable the secure identification of individuals within their key stakeholder communities. A "digital identity" is a unique representation of a person. It enables individuals to prove their physical identity during transactions. Moreover, a digital identity is a set of validated digital attributes and credentials for online interactions -- similar to a person's identity within the physical world. Individuals can use a 'digital ID' to be verified through an authorized digital channel. Usually issued or regulated by a national ID scheme, a digital identity serves to identify a unique person online or offline. Digital Identity Systems Market Development Complementary to more traditional forms of identification, digital identity verification systems can enhance the authenticity, security, confidentiality, and efficiency of

Global Pandemic Accelerates the Evolution of Transportation

Given the current trends across the globe, organizations that depend upon the continued growth of personal vehicle ownership will need to consider a plan-B scenario. While some companies will be able to adapt, others may find that their traditional business model has been totally disrupted. According to the latest worldwide market study by Juniper Research, Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) will displace over 2.2 billion private car journeys by 2025 -- that's rising from 471 million in 2021. Juniper believes that for MaaS to enjoy widespread adoption, subscription or on-the-go packages need to offer a strong combination of transport modes along with feasible infrastructure changes, high potential for data collection and low barriers to MaaS deployments. Mobility-as-a-Service Market Development The concept of MaaS involves the provision of multi-modal end-to-end travel services through a single platform by which users can determine the best route and price according to real-time traffic
