Many factors are responsible for the growth of apps, primarily a surge in digital transformation initiatives across industries in the country.
PUNE: Cisco’s data centre technologies business is growing on the back of increased demand for applications across sectors in India, its country manager said.

Many factors are responsible for the growth of apps, primarily a surge in digital transformation initiatives across industries in the country.

This is driving the company’s multi-cloud platform business, particularly its offerings for application modernisation and data centre network along with application centric infrastructure (ACI) for connecting the core to the edge, said Trideeb Roy, country manager-data centre, Cisco.

“With workflows moving to the edge, as companies evolve in their digitisation journey, workloads are more distributed. The complexity of the overall journey is driving a lot of these applications,” said Roy.

In industries such as manufacturing and oil and gas, the growth of internet of things and sensors for collecting data is increasing the speed of adoption of apps, while a lot of traditional companies are also creating apps for employees as part of their digitisation process.

“The transformation is mainly in software to help companies adopt and application modifications are fundamental for any digital transformation, whether it’s a traditional company, manufacturing or retail,” he said.

Data centre technologies is the second-largest business for the $52-billion technology firm globally as well as in India and contributes about 30% to total revenues.

“The last three years have been good for us and we expect to continue to grow in high double-digits going forward,” he said.

After the banking, financial sector and insurance (BFSI) space, the public sector is the fastest-growing unit for the company, driven by power and utility modernisation and smart city initiatives.

The company expects more growth to come from both these segments, as well as smaller businesses.

“All the segments are growing, but at different rates. The challenge is the reach – how do we leverage partners to be able to reach all the SMEs in India,” Roy said.
