Study Shows Multicloud On The Rise In Singapore

Nutanix, a leader in hybrid multicloud computing, announced the findings of its fourth global Enterprise Cloud Index (ECI) survey and research report, which measures enterprise progress with cloud adoption. The research sheds light on trends and patterns across the cloud landscape in Singapore, highlighting multicloud as the most commonly used deployment model currently — with adoption expected to jump to 63 percent in the next three years.

However, the complexity of managing workloads across cloud borders remains a major challenge for enterprises, and there is a growing requirement for hybrid multicloud tools that unify and automate processes across dissimilar cloud platforms. To address top challenges related to interoperability, security, cost and data integration, 82 percent of respondents agree that a hybrid multicloud infrastructure, an IT operating model with a blend of interoperable private and public cloud environments, is ideal.

This year, survey respondents were asked about their current cloud challenges, how they’re running business applications now and where they plan to run them in the future. Respondents were also asked about the impact of the pandemic on recent, current, and future IT infrastructure decisions and how IT strategy and priorities may change because of it.

“The future of a hybrid world is here — from modes of operation to the workforce, and business agility has become mission-critical for enterprises looking to thrive in this new disruptive economy. As a result, we are seeing greater demand amongst Singapore businesses for hybrid multicloud models, prized for their agility and high levels of intercloud operability it offers. Ultimately, this enables businesses to align their cloud needs with strategic business priorities, streamline existing workflows and resources, enhance workforce productivity, and accelerate innovation at speed and scale,” shared Ho Chye Soon, Singapore country manager, Nutanix.

He added, “We expect the local demand for hybrid multicloud to continue on an upward trajectory in the coming years, alongside a growing need for platforms that seamlessly unify and automate processes across different cloud platforms and applications. This will be a key priority for Singapore enterprises as they race to gain competitive advantage and further support hybrid work productivity, and we are ready to support businesses as they chart their cloud futures on their own terms.”

For the fourth consecutive year, Vanson Bourne conducted research on behalf of Nutanix, surveying 1,700 IT decision-makers around the world in August and September 2021. The respondent base spanned multiple industries, business sizes, and the following geographies: the Americas; Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA); and the Asia-Pacific (APJ) region.
