The Cloud market in India is likely to soar to $7.1 billion by 2022 with the developmental leaps in Big Data analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning and Internet of Things (IoT). The country is enjoying a technologically pulsating climate, with big businesses, startups and unicorns coloring its diverse terrain. In this replenishing atmosphere, Google announced the big news that its Cloud Business has yielded a run rate of over $8 billion and will be turning its attention to the Government Sector of the Country.
Google wants the government to benefit from its Cloud services. The government clients’ systems will now be transferred to the Cloud with built-in AI and Machine Learning competence. This would be the perfect time to completely infuse into the present fabric of the country that is defined by smart city planning, and adoption of a public cloud system to be part of the work culture.
“We are working closely with the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology to achieve the full Cloud Service Provider (CSP) empanelment. The idea is to help state governments have a secure experience with Cloud, along with utilising New-Age AI/ML capabilities,” said Nitin Bawankule, Director, Google Cloud, India.
The opportunities in India are vast and in multitudes according to the Director, who plans to set the ball rolling quickly, appointing sales teams to work in different government verticals.
The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) region went live in India a year ago, offering varied services, using Google’s core infrastructure, data analytics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Its services encompass, big data, storage and networking. The company plans to host a range of services and systems under one single umbrella.
