Nutanix, a leading hybrid multicloud computing provider, has released the findings of its fifth Enterprise Cloud Index (ECI) survey and research report, which measures the progress of enterprise cloud adoption. The report revealed that IT infrastructure has become increasingly diverse, with organizations struggling to integrate data management and control. The majority of IT teams leverage more than one IT infrastructure, a trend that is expected to intensify in the future.

Singapore enterprises are embracing hybrid multicloud, with the trend expected to rise in the coming years. However, many organizations are facing challenges in managing their various IT infrastructure – from the edge to the core to the cloud – and do not have complete visibility into where their data resides.

The goal for organizations is to make the hybrid operating model more efficient, especially when managing IT environments across the edge to the core. Comprehensive tools that allow organizations to provision, move, manage, monitor, and secure applications and data from a single console in a uniform manner are a growing priority for IT. Nearly all respondents in Singapore say they would benefit from having a single, unified control plane to manage applications and data across diverse environments.

Key findings for Singapore from this year’s global report include:

  • Most organizations in Singapore use more than one type of IT infrastructure, and nearly all agree that having a single platform to manage them all consistently would be ideal. The majority of IT teams leverage more than one IT infrastructure, whether it is a mix of private and public clouds, multiple public clouds, or an on-premises datacenter along with a hosted datacenter. That number is expected to grow to 91% in the near future.
  • Cybersecurity, data protection, and recovery are the biggest IT infrastructure decision factors in Singapore. Data is driving infrastructure decisions for enterprises, with data security, protection, and recovery topping the list of key drivers. However, visibility into where all data resides was also a top-mentioned data management challenge.
  • All respondent organizations in Singapore moved applications between infrastructures in the past 12 months. Improving their security posture, being able to meet regulatory requirements, and the desire to integrate with cloud-native services were the biggest motivators for moving apps across infrastructure.
  • Cloud cost control ranks as a top IT management challenge. Among respondents in Singapore, 93% consider cloud cost a challenging IT management issue, and 40% expressed being “very concerned” with cloud costs in the context of their IT budgets for the coming year.
  • Sustainability is now an IT priority. Nearly all (95%) respondents in Singapore agree that sustainability is more important to their organization than it was a year ago.

For the fifth consecutive year, Vanson Bourne conducted research on behalf of Nutanix, surveying 1,450 IT decision-makers around the world in December 2022 and January 2023. The respondent base spanned multiple industries, business sizes, and the following geographies: the Americas; Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA); and the Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) region.

According to Ho Chye Soon, Singapore Country Manager, Nutanix, “As a result, we are seeing an increasing demand from our customers in Singapore and wider region for a cloud operating platform that can unify, govern, and manage processes across the different clouds and applications to enable greater efficiency, enhance productivity, and streamline workflows and resources.”
