Cloud computing has come a long way from being a hyped fad to a must-have service model.

The potent impact of digital disruption triggered and accelerated by emerging technologies, has indeed created an urgent need to redefine and transform business models. Cloud is gaining rapid traction and acceptance due to its capability to trigger disruptive growth across organizations of almost any size. With the launch of the Digital India programme by government, cloud computing, along technologies like mobility, analytics and the internet of things (IoT), will be the key for implementing vision of transforming country into a digitally empowered knowledge economy.
