COMMVAULT: 2020 Asia Pacific Industry Trend Forecast

#1: Data strategy in the cloud is now a key component of corporate strategy

In 2020, enterprises need to adopt a more mature data strategy in the cloud. In the past, many enterprises have migrated large amounts of applications and data to the cloud, and until now, they are gradually shifting their strategy, doing it in a slower and more strategic way, and even moving some workloads back from the cloud. local data center. Companies across industries are recognizing that they should opt for the cloud while maintaining flexibility and cost value, so they are also beginning to reassess which environment can effectively balance business goals and workload demands.

From 2020 onwards, a comprehensive data strategy in the cloud will gradually become a necessary condition for enterprises in the Asia-Pacific region to remain competitive. To optimize their journey to the cloud, businesses first need to fully understand their data in order to get the most from their cloud deployments.

80% of enterprises migrated their workloads from public cloud back to on-premises in the past year, according to an IDC report; overall, enterprises will migrate 50% of their public cloud applications back to on-premises within the next two years Managed private cloud or on-premises environments;

Data management across multiple hybrid cloud environments will be the new normal in 2020 as enterprises continue to move data back to on-premises environments. More and more enterprises are beginning to realize the value of deploying workloads to multiple cloud environments, helping organizations achieve adaptability, minimize risk and realize increased value. Enterprises often employ multiple cloud service providers to create a multi-cloud environment, so data management, access and protection will be key requirements.

In 2020, digital transformation will provide companies with a competitive advantage and real insight by strengthening the integration of digitally collected data and decentralized data, and focusing on the improvement of technology and services at the organizational level. At the same time, this process must be strictly compliant, and the management of the growing amount of personal data must comply with legal and cultural regulations.

According to Commvault, some enterprises initially store workloads on physically dense tape, saving costs and resources; others initially deploy applications or large cloud-native databases that facilitate backup and migration between clouds. Therefore, a data strategy covering disaster recovery in the cloud will be the trend.

According to an IDC report, by 2022, 70% of enterprises will deploy unified hybrid or multi-cloud management technologies, tools and processes. Frank Gens, senior vice president and principal analyst at IDC, said: “We will enter a new chapter of competition on the enterprise cloud.

Enterprises should prioritize the adoption of SaaS-based management and governance products, develop relevant business KPIs, and realign their IT environments around a digital-first infrastructure.

The top ten SaaS franchise providers will generate, on average, nearly 20% of their revenue from scaling their PaaS offerings.

Frank Gens also said: “The future market will consolidate around a few large cloud platforms, so enterprises should choose their core large cloud platforms wisely”. At the same time, enterprises should prioritize multi-cloud adoption and use SaaS providers that can successfully deliver platform services and applications. SaaS providers will become an important source of digital innovation for enterprises. The predictions above create a new kind of digital-first enterprise that will be confirmed in the coming years.
