Background note on Cloud market in India:
With the leap in demand for cloud services, the Indian market is witnessing an incredible increase in the number of cloud computing providers. Nowadays, cloud computing providers offer their services at an affordable price which is suitable to everyone, hence, even smaller companies are enjoying the benefits of cloud services such as preventing technological catastrophes like data loss, system crashes and virus attacks. According to a recent report entitled “Deconstructing the cloud: The new growth frontier for Indian IT-BPO sector” by NASSCOM in association with Deloitte, “Cloud computing is expected to have a significant impact on the services industry, in terms of services offered, delivery mechanisms and business models. The Indian market for cloud computing is expected to grow by $16 billion in 2020. About two-third of this growth will be due to new businesses and the rest will come from existing service lines.”
