Significant Migration by Singapore Firms to Cloud

The question nowadays is no longer whether organisations should migrate to the cloud, but how they can leverage the cloud for innovation, efficiency, and growth. According to the survey commissioned by more than half (51%) of respondents in Singapore said that their entire applicable infrastructure now resides in the cloud, while half said they plan to move more of their workloads into the cloud as possible.

In addition, close to two-thirds (64%) of respondents’ compute workloads are now supported by public cloud, colocation and managed hosting services. At the same time, IT infrastructure spread has reached an equilibrium and leaders expect it to hold steady over the next three to five years.

The survey also revealed business growth (36%), efficiency (23%), and improved security (8%) as the top three factors that drive decisions on where businesses should run their cloud infrastructure in Singapore. More than a third (35%) of respondents say IT executives play a key role in driving the direction of the company, as silos between functional areas continue to dissolve.

Driven in large part by the power of the cloud, today’s technology landscape is evolving at a breakneck pace, while IT is penetrating all areas of the organisation. In this environment, IT leaders have the power to help companies and organisations see around corners to solve both their short-term and long-term business challenges and provide critical guidance in the areas of business growth, security, efficiency, and customer experience.

Singapore and largely APAC are adopting both public and private cloud and many organisations are looking to do so even more in the next few years to boost digital transformation securely and sustainably. Organisations will be increasingly faced with complex considerations when employing hybrid and multi-cloud strategy which makes it more crucial for them to engage solutions experts to help them fully realise the value of the cloud.

Over the next 12 months, respondents anticipate their infrastructure spending will include on-site data centres (55%), managed hosting (52%), public cloud (51%), and colocation (34%). However, 60% of respondents also said they envision not owning a data centre in the next five years. Around 54% say legacy apps are the main factor keeping them from abandoning data centres.

As part of the Singapore government’s objective to harness the capabilities of commercial cloud computing platforms to governmental systems, many public sector agencies are migrating their IT systems to the Government Commercial Cloud (GCC).

GCC Service brings the modern innovations and capabilities of commercial cloud computing platforms to less sensitive Government systems. These leading ICT capabilities are augmented by robust cybersecurity measures and systems to protect the data that resides on commercial cloud platforms.

Multinational conglomerates are leading the cloud computing revolution, providing organisations with Commercial Cloud options that are scalable and customisable. Rather than being mired in the cost and hassle of racking, stacking and maintaining computing hardware on-site, developer teams can instead focus on what they do best—build and deliver digital applications that create value for stakeholders within and beyond their organisation.

Government agencies can tap on commercial cloud software to incorporate advanced functionalities into their digital services instead of trying to reinvent the wheel. Application testing and deployment can be automated and done in real-time, speeding up the delivery of high-quality Government digital services to citizens and businesses.

As reported by OpenGov Asia, agencies require a reliable and secure data management platform that allows for quick migration to the GCC, high data quality and managed data access for users. As a result, choosing the correct data strategy and the long-term platform is even more crucial in their migration to the GCC. In light of this, Singapore’s Government Technology Agency (GovTech) is upgrading the GCC service to make it easier for government agencies to manage and safeguard their use of public cloud services.
