Cloud IaaS Revenue will Reach $150.7 Billion in 2023

Demand for cloud computing Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) is expected to drive the current $45.6 billion market toward $150.7 billion by 2023 -- that's a compound annual growth rate of 27 percent, according to the latest worldwide market study by Frost & Sullivan.

Enterprises are using cloud services for strategic benefits such as supporting digital transformation efforts rather than for tactical ones, like reducing IT infrastructure costs and the hardware or software maintenance burden.

This market shift has changed the way enterprises choose and manage their IT infrastructure, and led them to deploy applications across multiple infrastructures, from on-premises private cloud to public cloud (multi- and single-tenant), resulting in higher demand for IaaS offerings.

Hybrid Multi-Cloud Market Development

"As the mix of deployment models and best-of-breed cloud IaaS vendors becomes increasingly diverse, single-tenant IaaS will gain revenue share over multi-tenant services," said Maiara Munhoz, senior industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan.

Meanwhile, the emergence of cloud brokerage and cloud management platforms is boosting the trend of hybrid and multi-cloud deployment strategies, making managed cloud services providers key in supporting enterprises and their CIO or CTO requirements.

Frost & Sullivan analysts believe that managed service providers (MSPs) will support their customers with workload assessment and placement, workload migration, and hybrid cloud integration.

The North America region continues to be the most mature cloud IaaS market globally, followed by EMEA, but they are expected to gradually make room for the APAC and LATAM regions.

Some countries in APAC, such as Japan and Australia, are more mature, while India, China, Singapore, South Korea, and Hong Kong are fast-growing markets.

Outlook for Cloud IaaS Applications Growth

Going forward, it will be essential for vendors of cloud computing IaaS to invest in integrated services, on-premises and in the public cloud. For further growth opportunities, vendors should:

  • Offer more advanced services in the cloud -- such as containers and serverless architecture -- and tools for enterprises to manage, analyze, and act on their data.
  • Support hybrid deployment models, as enterprises realize that a single cloud or deployment model will not address all their application requirements.
  • Partner with MSPs to deliver training, programs and features to support them.
  • Invest in educating clients on cloud computing technology, as enterprises still need guidance on how to use cloud services to meet goals for business innovation and digital transformation.

Hybrid Work: How to Enhance Employee Productivity

When you hire qualified talent for a key role and trust them to perform, you'll likely achieve the best outcome. Skilled and experienced people will deliver results, regardless of the challenges. That's a key lesson learned from the pandemic experience as most knowledge workers were asked to work from their homes. However, some resist returning to an open-plan office. It's unacceptable. Meanwhile, forward-thinking leaders decided a "return to normal" is undesirable, and in hindsight, everyone should aspire to be more accomodating than before. Therefore, location flexibility is okay. Hybrid Workforce Market Development How will people adapt to these changes? They'll apply the modern IT tools at their disposal. They'll learn new skills and thrive. Nearly 80 percent of employees are now successfully using online collaboration tools for work in 2021 -- that's up from just over half of workers in 2019, according to the latest market study by Gartner.
