Update from Agatha Poon, Research Director for Asia-Pacific Services:

Open Cloud Platform: The Future is Now

August 15, 2017

One thing that has always fascinated me about being an analyst is to witness the shift in market conditions, driven by a combination of incremental adaptation and disruptive force. Having spent the past nine years tracking the still evolving cloud computing market, I see the industry maturing, with growing number of market participants and, more importantly, service options. Conversations have shifted from providing pure-play cloud infrastructure services (public, private, and hybrid) to managing the complexity of multi-cloud and hyper-converged environments, to running the new generation of app development platform in the cloud.

As part of our ongoing research efforts to assess and develop an accurate picture of the cloud marketplace, we maintain a constant dialogue with industry experts and enterprise users. The use of container technology is clearly in the industry’s spotlight. There is a big push into delivering container as a service, and cloud-native becomes a buzzword as vendors and providers envisage a new wave of application development. Anecdotal conversations suggest that open source software is a key enabler. On the commercial front, open source technology has taken on a whole new meaning, driven by a spirit of innovation and entrepreneurship. At a recent event in Beijing, I delivered a presentation about the present and future of open cloud platforms. One of the slides summarizes my observation about the new era of open source, which is characterized by three main attributes – Innovation, Investor-backing, and IPR-focused.

While open source software was being used as a cost-effective alternative to proprietary software in early days, the development of open source software has come to a turning point.  In China, for example, the use of open source technologies is synonymous with innovation. How and to what extent? Have a look of a recently published Spotlight report.
