In an article on India-based tech publication PC Quest, Vikas Arora, country manager of cloud business for IBM India and South Asia explains:

“We are close to 2,000 customers on cloud, and many of those customers belong to of tier two and three of mid-sized businesses…SAP migration is a big example. After [the] launch of [India’s Goods and Services Tax], a lot of mid-sized business have migrated it on cloud. These companies would not process it like large enterprises, but they have started evaluating cloud vendors for different scenarios. Basically, whosoever is seriously considering and going into IT deployments, cloud is now becoming their first choice.”

Arora also explains the benefits of IBM Cloud Private, particularly how it gives customers a number of options for integrating various services including AI and blockchain. “IBM Cloud Private brings rapid application development and modernization to existing IT infrastructure and positions it to be combined with the services and experience of a public cloud platform,” he says.
