Cloud-computing company Nutanix said its business in India — which has grown by over 60% over the past year — is outperforming other regions.
A surge in digital adoption that began during the Covid-19 pandemic has continued in India, with the enterprise cloud computing company continuing to add new customers in the country, said Aaron White, recently appointed vice president and general manager – APJ Sales at Nutanix.
“We’ve had a 64% annual growth in contract value in India over the past year and an 80% increase in our partner ecosystem in India,” said White.
“As we emerged from the pandemic, I saw this tremendous surge in adoption of technology that is driving digital transformation. I’ve met a number of companies this week and there is no slowdown in their business – on the contrary,” he added.
White, who was called to the role earlier this month, was in India last week to meet with clients.
There is a shift in the way people want to consume services and this is driving the transformation for banks and other service providers, he said.
According to White, companies in Asia Pacific had lagged behind Western markets in adopting public clouds, giving them a “last mover advantage.”
“Now things are well understood and companies know what applications and services they want in the cloud. We understand the pitfalls and we know how to take advantage of it (the public cloud) and advise our customers and partners on how to make it efficient,” he said.
Most providers’ shift to a consumption- and subscription-driven model has also helped drive down costs and drive adoption in this region.
In India, Nutanix has worked with companies in the financial services and insurance, IT and government sectors.
As government spending increases, there’s an opportunity to double those industries and drive new business in areas like app modernization and cost optimization, he added.
