Businesses are evolving and growing their businesses through technology. Today, organizations are digitizing almost everything they do. Data is their most important currency and they focus on how to manage, access and transfer it effectively and efficiently.
The recent pandemic has accelerated the digital transformation paradigm as these extraordinary situations have pushed businesses in all industries to make IT and digital transformation a top priority. Clearly today, modernizing their IT infrastructure, managing their applications and finding the most effective way to meet the digital needs of their customers and employees are at the heart of the concerns of IT leaders across world.
With the largest U.S. IPO of 2016 and the ability to grow its business to over $ 1 billion in revenue, Nutanix is now recognized as one of the world’s leaders in cloud enterprise computing, supporting more than 20,000 companies worldwide with their digital transformation. Recently in Paris for a few days, its CEO Rajiv Ramaswami shared, his thoughts on the IT challenges facing businesses today, the impact of the recent pandemic and the opportunities offered by the cloud.
“The recent pandemic is increasing the need for mission critical IT,” Rajiv Ramaswami said. “Over the past two years, the solutions offered by Nutanix have become essential for companies looking to modernize their IT infrastructure and meet the digital needs of their customers and remote workers. The company was the first to help. to businesses of all sizes around the world to build a simplified IT infrastructure with one-click operation.In the future, as businesses move more to the cloud, hyperconvergence and hybrid cloud specialists are focused on erasing on the complexity of managing multiple clouds.
Rajiv Ramaswami explained that although he has seen some changes in specific industries and countries, companies continue to modernize their data centers in a three-tier architecture, running more mission-critical applications. and further expanding their workloads in the cloud. The cloud has really taken off because it has made it so easy to subscribe to the complex technology that companies need to run their applications and store their data. However, with the growing needs in the cloud there is a desire to choose. The market is rapidly moving towards operating through multiple clouds, whether it is a large cloud provider or a customer-owned data center. Companies want to control costs, management and compliance.
For Nutanix, the cloud is an operating model, not a destination. Rajiv Ramaswami explained that his company’s mission is to remove multicloud complexity and allow customers to focus on their business results. Businesses should choose the location that best suits their needs and budget. Interestingly, in a recent Cloud Index study conducted on behalf of Nutanix by Vanson Bourne, 83% of IT professionals in France said hybrid multicloud was their preferred operating model.
Companies choose to run their applications in multiple clouds and they want a “hybrid multicloud” infrastructure because it gives them choice and flexibility. However, running multiple clouds is a complex process and companies are looking for ways to simplify their infrastructure as much as possible and make it transparent. Rajiv Ramaswami concluded that simplification in complexity creates a huge opportunity for value creation. “At Nutanix, we provide a platform that brings the simplicity of a cloud subscription to multiple clouds; we call it “Hybrid multicloud”. This is the market we are targeting and, along with our core market, it represents a $ 60 billion market opportunity in 2025.
