Oracle looks to venture in India following the lead of giants in cloud services

India is a country which is totally on a breakthrough path. It is breaking through many barriers, making headlines for the right reasons and accepting bigger and better opportunities with both hands. Most of the credit for the same has to go to the ever-growing consumers and their appetite for better technology and other things that come with it. This has made India the next country for any company. Every global company is looking to invest in India or expand in India. The reason is again the same, the population and their acceptance for greater things.

That said, cloud-based services in India are also on a high. The demand is increasing and the services are also available for the same. That said, India is the largest market in Asia Pacific second only to China, not only that it is also the fastest growing market in Asia which makes it a prime point for global leaders in tech.

Google Cloud has pointed out that it has increased its business in India’s retail and media entertainment segment. Amazon Web Services also netted a profit, Alibaba came up with its first data center in the country. This happened in January of 2018. Apart from this Microsoft has also entered with its Azure Stack, its cloud service in India. It recently partnered with LG also. Amongst all these cloud services there is one giant of a company missing and that is Oracle.

California’s company which is a computer technology master, Oracle had always ignored the idea of India but looking at such huge names investing in India has only added to its interest. Now, the company sees huge ‘prospects’ in India. It is opening up data centres in India now. The data centres in India will focus on Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and is in line to check Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) which is on the Oracle Cloud Culture.

The regional director of Oracle India, Shailendra Kumar, believes that India is rapidly adapting Autonomous Database, it is a software which uses Machine Learning so that there is availability all the time and provides security at a cost which is unparalleled.

Not only Kumar but CII and KPMG have reported that India is currently going through a cloud revolution. It is mostly powered by IT and telecommunications network which can help enable telemedicine, distant classrooms and many such facilities for the Indians. This can also create cloud-based services in India.

That said, according to Gartner, the Indian cloud market is at $2.5 billion which has grown by 37.5%. It was at $1.8 billion in the year 2017. India is now very sensitive about the data of its citizens and global companies are working with global companies for the same.
