With more CEOs asking the question ‘are we cloud-like?’, the outlook for cloud in India is bright, says Balakrishnan Anantharaman, vice-president & managing director – Sales, India & Saarc, Nutanix. San Jose, California-based Nutanix is a cloud computing software firm that sells hyper-converged infrastructure appliances and software-defined storage. “India is a hotbed of startups, who usually begin their journey without their own infrastructure. Enterprise adoption of cloud computing has grown significantly in recent years too,” he tells Sudhir Chowdhary in a recent interview. Excerpts:

What’s new in the enterprise technology landscape?

Organisations that were traditionally B2B, and that were typically working as a system of records, are now looking at systems of engagement to reach more customers. We are seeing a lot of SaaS applications promoted by banks and other organisations. The tech landscape is asking – ‘What systems of engagement can I have, which will reach the customer faster, either from an acquisition or experience perspective?’

How has cloud computing evolved in the last two to three years?

India is a hotbed of startups, which usually begin their journey without their own infrastructure. Secondly, enterprise adoption of cloud computing has grown. Enterprises have already taken peripheral applications like HRMS, Learning Management Systems, Customer Experience, Digital Applications to the cloud. They are now focused on the next wave of applications—not just mission critical, like core banking applications, but business critical applications. Are these ready to go to the cloud? This is the workload evaluation enterprises are currently considering.
