  • If we look at the company sizes, the distribution of the respondents of the company size is:Small: 34.7%Medium: 35.37%Large: 29.93%
  • We were told by the staff at CtrlS Delhi office that the awareness figure was lower than what they had expected. The explanation could be that the survey was carried out mainly concentrating on SME sectors. SME sectors made up almost 70% of the survey respondents. The awareness was particularly low among small enterprises, coming in at 7.84%.The awareness among different size groups was:Small: 7.84%Medium: 13.5%Large: 43.2%If we take a look at SME sector, the awareness figure is 10.7%. This sector drags the total awareness level to 20%
  • The figures for Delhi look particularly appalling. This could be explained that 90% of the companies surveyed in New Delhi area SMEs in the vicinity of Nehru Place. As we saw previously, the awareness of CtrlS in this vey low. So, the awareness of CtrlS in Nehru Place is abysmal
  • Gartner says that Cloud Computing will mature in 2-3 years. This technology is expected to take off spectacularly in 2014-15
  • Cisco states that India is an emerging cloud market mainly due to the low bandwidth figures for the country as well as bad power situation

    14. 14. Some insights about Brand Awareness of CtrlS • There seemed to be a general lack of awareness of CtrlS and its services amongst the surveyed companies • Only companies who had done business with CtrlS in the recent past or who had considered CtrlS for a requirement recently were aware of the company and the services offered • 20 companies which were aware of CtrlS were large scale companies (>500 employees) • Amongst the Small Scale Enterprises, there was complete unawareness of CtrlS
    15. 15. Where is Cloud Computing in Hype Cycle? Please see the note section
    16. 16. Cisco‟s Cloud Readiness Index shows that India is still an emerging cloud computing market
    17. 17. Cloud Computing – What reports say • Global cloud computing sector is growing at a rate of 28% and cloud- • • • • generated IT innovations could produce US$1.1trn annually in new business revenues by 2015 – Asia Cloud Computing Association (ACCA) By 2016, Asia-Pacific will gain top spot (1.5 zettabytes), followed by North America (1.1 zettabytes) and Western Europe (1 zettabytes) in Cloud traffic - Cisco's Global Cloud Index, 2012 India ranks 9th in APAC region on ACCA‟s Cloud Readiness Index 2012. The main factors dragging down the rankings are: Broadband Quality, Power Grid and Data Center Index India ranks 29th out of 30 countries in Cushman & Wakefield‟s Data Center Risk Index 2013. Factors for this ranking include: difficulty in doing business, high corporate taxes and low energy security “However, despite these challenges, the perspective remains that in the long-term India will be an attractive investment opportunity” Cushman & Wakefield‟s Data Center Risk Index 2013
    18. 18. Cloud Computing – What reports say • “The cloud computing market in India is expected to cross the $1 billion mark by 2014, growing at a CAGR of 32% between 2011 and 2015” - Cloud computing adoption – Large Enterprises in India, a report by Research and Markets, Inc. • Indian National Telecom Policy 2012 emphasises “Promoting synergies between roll out of broadband and various government schemes such as AADHAR, MGNREGA, etc. The synergies can be created through Cloud Computing to enhance e-Governance initiatives” • According to Symantec State of the Cloud Survey 2012, • 11-19% respondents have implemented cloud • 34-50% respondents in trials/implementing cloud • 19-20% respondents in discussion/planning mode cloud • 19-25% respondents are not considering cloud
    19. 19. Methodology to calculate market size • According to MaRS DD, a consulting firm in Canada, Market Size calculation involves the following steps • Step 1: Define the target customer • Step 2: Estimate number of target customers • Step 3: Determine the penetration rate • Step 4: Calculate the market size volume and value • Market volume=Number of target customers × Penetration rate • Market value=Market volume × Average value
    20. 20. Assumptions • Gartner‟s report says the market for Cloud Computing in India is forecast to • • • • grow to $443 million in 2013, with an annual growth of 70% over 2012, with SaaS forming 36% of the market Based on Hype Cycle 2012 and Cisco‟s Cloud Readiness Index, Cloud Computing in India is set to take off in a spectacular way in 2 years. However, at the current point of time, adoption of cloud computing is not high on the surveyed companies priorities Economic conditions also have to be taken into consideration. With Indian GDP set to grow at 6% in 2013-14 and recovery slow in USA and Europe, companies are postponing significant investments in IT infrastructure if the RoI (Return On Investment) is not particularly high CtrlS North India region had revenues of Rs. 11 Crore in 2012-13, of which 23% came from Cloud Computing services. The total market for firms providing services similar to CtrlS in Delhi was Rs. 60 Crore There were 10 customers, the average order size works out to 25.3 Lakhs
    21. 21. Assumptions (cont.) • Assumption is that the share of revenue from Cloud computing is similar for all the firms in Delhi • This analysis ignores all Government or PSU organizations because: • No Government/PSU agency has been covered in the survey • The IT decisions in such organizations are not straightforward and involve multiple actors and are affected by political considerations
    22. 22. Step 1: Define The Target Customer • IDC‟s India Cloud Market Overview, 2012 states that large businesses • • • • • are more savvy and able to adopt cloud computing more than SMEs The same report states that SMEs “either don‟t have existing IT systems or have ones that lack experience, and as such, are more averse to adopting the cloud for their use” According to HP‟s Innovations for the Next Billion Customers Lab, less than 1 percent of these SMEs use any type of automation, and rely heavily on paper documentation An Indian CIO said “in my culture, we don‟t just want to „kick the tires,‟ we want to drive them for 10,000 kilometres and wear them out before we buy.” to IBM Global Business Services So, the target customers for Cloud Computing Services are medium and large companies i.e. companies with more than 500 employees The share of such companies in the survey was 65%
    23. 23. Step 2: Estimate Number Of Target Customers • There are 11217 registered companies with head offices in Delhi/NCR. Out of this, about 60% are small scale enterprises thus, 40% of the companies are medium or large scale i.e. 4487 companies are medium and large scale enterprises
    24. 24. Step 3: Determine the penetration rate • According to CyberMedia Research, the cloud computing • • • • penetration was 6.8 in Indian enterprises in 2012 Another research by TechSoup arrived at a penetration rate of 6.6 in a survey carried out in 2012 We can assume that the cloud penetration rate in Delhi/NCR is same as the rest of India Since cloud computing is forecast to grow at 53% CAGR, we can assume that the penetration rate in 2013 would be 6.6 + (53% of 6.6) Thus the penetration rate is 10.1
    25. 25. Step 4: Calculate the market size volume and value • Market volume=Number of target customers × Penetration rate • • • • • • Volume=4487 * 10.1% = 454 Market value=Market volume × Average value Value = 454 * 0.253 = 115.87 Crores Thus the market value in Delhi/NCR is Rs. 115.87 Crores, with a low penetration rate of 10.1% However, as cloud computing becomes more popular, the penetration rate will increase and the market size will grow We have ignored the Government and PSU sectors for this analysis. Projects such as UIDAI, NPR, etc. are taking off and schemes such as MGNREGA, Direct Cash Transfer, etc. are being tightly integrated with the above projects According to Zinnov Consultancy, PSUs such as BPCL, IOCL, and ONGC have expressed interest in moving to cloud within the next two years Since the above projects are controlled by Central Government in Delhi, the market would be at least 30% more than the calculated size if we include the Government sector and PSUs
    26. 26. Conclusion • The awareness of CtrlS and its offerings was 20% in the surveyed companies • The market size for Cloud Computing in Delhi/NCR is Rs. 115.87 Crores excluding Government and PSU sector. However, this is expected to increase by 53% CAGR until 2016 to reach Rs. 635 Crore
