Adoption of Cloud Delivery Model to Spike among Businesses to Open New Opportunities

Service providers are rapidly developing advanced applications to incorporate or orchestrate their clients' use of various cloud resources. This applies not only to cloud migration but also to the development of cloud-native applications. Leading network service providers build cloud systems that combine various cloud services in order that automate deployment and seamless operations, even as these platform elements differ depending on the approach of each vendor. 

The advantages of the network include improved coordination and the processing of metadata for the application of these systems through the standardization of various cloud providers. This meta-data can be used to track cloud service usage and to prepare for future changes.

Organizations have been using hybrid cloud technologies to make the cloud infrastructure accessible and flexible without needing to move directly to the cloud or multiple clouds, either public or private since one cloud vendor will not be able to provide the functionality. Thus, with the increasing adoption of digital network channels, hybrid cloud platforms are opening new investment opportunities for managed cloud service providers.


Customer Acceptance of Cloud Approach to Smoothen IT Operations & Boost the Demand for Cloud Managed Services

As enterprises are formulating plans to fulfill their IT and network needs, managed cloud services will be at the forefront among all technologies. Organizations are running their IT applications on cloud servers including accounting, finance, customer relationship management, and other applications. The rapid adoption of cloud solutions to deploy and manage business operations is changing the state of cloud adoption globally. 

For instance, Betabrand, a clothing company headquartered in the US, migrated its operations to Google Cloud infrastructure Kubernetes in anticipation of Black Friday in 2017. With this migration, the company was able to manage peak loads with no issues. Thus, with businesses moving towards cloud infrastructure, the adoption of cloud-managed services is expected to witness a huge surge in demand.

Leading suppliers recognize that the cloud distribution model is more than just cost-reduction and have built end-to-end service portfolios that are meeting the business needs and providing greater customer value. With the common goal of ensuring technology up-gradation with cloud technology, the cloud can be a valuable model for companies to manage business functionalities efficiently.

In response to the accelerated demands to integrate new technologies and to optimize application performance and costs, companies are becoming increasingly dependent on cloud-based management services to manage their business. Thus, with the increasing adoption of cloud solutions among businesses, the need for these services is heightened.

Burgeoning Need for Handling Critical IT Systems & Business Applications to Boost the Market

While companies and financial firms wade through the unpredictable economic and regulatory landscape of today, the pressure has been greater on the risk and compliance model. The adoption of managed services is increasing with companies seeking to improve their organization, operation, and security by providing more strategic responses.

Cloud managed services are advantageous for companies since they enable businesses to eliminate complex system integration services and help to establish a well-developed solution to ensure cloud scalability and economics. Maintaining full time IT staff to manage cloud services is very expensive and not feasible for most small- and medium-sized businesses. Thus, outsourcing these services allows businesses to control and reduce network maintenance costs without compromising on security or productivity.

In addition to this, cloud services provide several advantages over traditional services such as centralized applications and network services, build storage and backup, and manage all network management layers. Thus, the adoption of cloud managed type of services is growing and companies are finding it possible to drive business success.  


Lack of Integrated Workforce Management and Data Management Limitations to Hamper Market Growth

The lack of IT and cybersecurity practitioners is a leading factor limiting the growth of this market. This shortcoming will prohibit organizations from fulfilling their IT security needs. The lack of IT and cybersecurity professionals in a company can open hackers and malware to enter the IT ecosystem resulting in the loss of valuable data and resources. 

For instance, in September 2019, AutoClerk Inc., a major property management solution provider, witnessed a security breach in its Elasticsearch database, leading to a massive loss of 179 GB of data including travel arrangements of thousands of members of the US government and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Thus, efficient cybersecurity practices are required for the implementation of managed cloud services.

In addition to this, the high cost associated with these services along with the data privacy and security concerns is one of the crucial factors hampering the market growth.
