 Analysts to Discuss Key Issues Facing Data Center Leaders at the Gartner Infrastructure, Operations Management & Data Center Summit, May 8-9, 2018 in Mumbai

Data center infrastructure hardware enterprise spending in India is on pace to total US$2.7 billion in 2018, a 2.6 percent increase from 2017, according to Gartner, Inc. While hardware spending is set to grow moderately in 2018, enterprise spending on data center infrastructure software will rise to US$3.6 billion in 2018, a 10 percent year-over-year increase.

Gartner analysts are providing the latest trends shaping the future of the infrastructure and operations market in front of over 400 attendees at Gartner’s annual Gartner Infrastructure, Operations Management & Data Center Summit, which is taking place here through Wednesday.

“Digital business initiatives are forcing infrastructure and operations leaders in India to adopt a hybrid IT infrastructure model that can deliver reliable, innovative and cost-effective solutions to the business in a timely manner,” said Santhosh Rao, research director at Gartner. “This positions cloud computing as a critical component of the hybrid model.”

In terms of data center infrastructure hardware spending, end-user spending on networking equipment is expected to grow in 2018 as organizations modernize their local area network (LAN) and wide area network (WAN) infrastructure to support digital business needs (see Table 1). In contrast, on-premises server and storage spending will decline marginally as a result of public cloud migration. “Technologies such as software-defined data centers are helping businesses optimize their existing resources, and as a result reducing overall spend on compute and storage resources,” added Mr. Rao.
