The growth in communication with external partners, other industries, and customers is intensifying, while public cloud is providing a perfect platform for establishing an open inter-company network. Public cloud services cover a large number of functions, from the basics of storage, processing, and networking power through artificial intelligence and natural language processing (NLP) as well as standard office applications.
Public Cloud Market Report Highlights
Public clouds are offered where the physical infrastructure is generally owned and managed by the provider. They may provide either a dedicated or shared operating environment with the ability to scale seamlessly on demand and the benefits of accountability. These services offer features such as unlimited capacity, potentially attractive costs rising from large-scale infrastructures and related operational practices, and a pay-as-you-go pricing model that are making up-front server purchases obsolete.
Partnerships and strategic mergers and acquisitions are anticipated to be the most effective way for industry players to gain quick access in emerging markets and enhance technological capabilities. Also, product differentiation and upgradation is expected to pave the way for the development of companies. Moreover, the rising startup culture and cloud service provider startups such as Snowflake Inc.; Zoom Video Communications.; Slack Technologies; Stripe; Uptake; and Stratoscale will pose potential competition in the market.
In October 2018, IBM acquired the world’s leading open source cloud software provider Red Hat. With the acquisition of Red Hat, IBM is now able to expand its public cloud offerings to a broader range of clients.
