Microsoft announced their plans to open up provision of the Azure cloud platform in India via its channel partners there, that currently number over 10, 000. This move stands to benefit the company with regards to exposure, especially among SMBs in the South-Asian regions.
Azure is now part of the open-licensing offer in India, having conspicuously remained apart all this time. Microsoft help & support center reports that many SME’s were keen to adopt the platform, while simultaneously working with local IT partners. By making a move of putting it out there, Microsoft has allowed SMB’s in India the provision to buy Azure cloud platform from local IT partners.
Previously, customers only had the option to purchase directly from the Azure website, or componential to an Enterprise Agreement (EA) signed with Microsoft. Microsoft help & support team highlights that the offer now comprises a complete set of enterprise-grade cloud services to increase efficiency and competitiveness. The previous open catalogue already contained Office 365, which means that with the addition of Azure, SMBs stand capable of quickly building and positioning applications for release at cheaper cost. They also have the chance of gaining faster investment returns.
A study by Nasscom and Frost & Sullivan revealed that small and medium businesses will spend a projected $18.5 billion on information technology by the end of fiscal year 2018, owing to the growing uptake of cloud and mobility services. This would contrast with the approximate Rs 47, 200 crore spent on IT in 2013. This was $8.7 billion following the then currency rate, with around 45 percent of it going into hardware, while 40 percent was spent on IT services. The remaining 15 percent went into licensing software, and software as a service (SaaS) program.
The uptake of SaaS is rising in the Indian market, especially among SMBs, and at a measured annual growth rate of 25 percent, it is projected to hit Rs 2, 000 crore by 2018. This apparently owes to the fact that over the years, customers have received the use and benefit of new technologies from Microsoft, who now have a 10, 000 partners network. These options from Microsoft help & support the development of SMBs the most.
That was a brief snapshot of the plans Microsoft has for the Indian subcontinent. Call our Microsoft help & support team for more details on the same.
