Cloud computing is poised to become the next big thing in the country. According to industry estimates, the market size is expected to grow up to $4.5 billion by the year 2015. Some even say that given the right push, cloud computing can become even bigger.
On Thursday, a white paper detailing innovative means of applying cloud computing technologies was released by Infosys Executive Vice Chairman S Gopalakrishnan at the IEEE Cloud Computing for Emerging Markets [CCEM] conference in the city. The paper deals with detailed usage scenarios in which cloud computing can be useful to the Indian market. Sectors like e-governance, e-health as well as other industry-specific clouds are discussed in the paper. “The government must support (cloud computing) by use of cloud in e-governance and making regulations to promote cloud -related standards,” Gopalkrishnan said.
