Computing power, once the province of large organisations that owned mighty mainframes and in-house servers, is rapidly shifting to the cloud. Businesses eager to trim their IT budgets and cash-strapped startups in need of more computing capacity no longer have to spend on servers and expensive hardware. Cloud companies, with their network of data centres, deliver these services over the internet. Along with global leaders Amazon, Microsoft and Google, local players, nudged by the idea of a Digital India, are staking a claim to this lucrative market. And with providers proving they can better secure data against hackers, more and more CIOs are shunning their costly packaged software and IT maintenance contracts in favour of cloud-delivered services. Our Special Report captures this trend.
