Public cloud spending across Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa and South Korea (BRICSS nations) is expected to reach USD 3.48 billion by end of 2015, growing by 38.3 per cent (compounded annual growth rate), according to consultancy firm Zinnov.

This is against a spending of USD 688 million on public cloud in BRICSS nations by end of 2010.

Cloud computing generally refers to the technology, whereby entities can share resources and software on-demand through the Internet.

"The adoption of cloud computing services, which is expected to cross USD one billion by 2014 in India, will be driven by government initiatives like e-governance and UID project," Zinnov Management Consulting Manager-Consulting Praveen Bhadada told reporters here.

The study found that the emerging markets have contributed significantly towards the IT spend globally over the last 12 months.

"BFSI, telecom and Government are the priority verticals in BRICSS... BRICSS nations contributed nine per cent towards the total of USD 1.51 trillion of global IT spend worldwide for 2010," he said.

China invested the highest among the BRICSS nations at USD 54 billion in 2010, while India and Brazil invested USD 21.8 billion and USD 21.3 billion, respectively.

"Characteristics of the BRICSS nations are unique and mandate an altogether different approach. Key drivers contributing to the growth of cloud computing in the BRICSS markets would undoubtedly include aspects like increasing IT spending, large base of SMBs, improving ICT ecosystem, favorable government policies & partnerships," Bhadada said.

Talking about the Indian market, Bhadada said, "We see a lot of initiatives coming in from the government in the shape of e-governance. There are huge amount of investments that are taking place and administrators in India are trying to implement cloud computing in e-governance."
