India pro cloud
The Indian government fosters cloud solutions by writing a new policy aimed to answer security issues and encourage cloud adoption. This will create new opportunities for cloud services start-ups and reduce IT costs for SMEs.
At a conference the Indian Minister for Communications and IT stated that both the Indian government and SME will benefit from cloud: it will help to improve productivity and economies of scale, to cut costs and boost employment as it will bring new venture capital investors. Both investors and vendors are ready to accept this challenge.
Even though security is still a concern, cloud is a cost-effective solution and Indian companies are willing to save a lot of money by paying a small monthly fee instead of expensive software and infrastructure. Moreover Indian cloud vendors will become competitive worldwide.
