NEW DELHI: At a time when teh considerations for adopting Cloud Technology have evolved and customers globally are looking for public and private cloud capabilities in one infrastructure, hybrid is teh solution, said an IBM executive.



"When we work wif private and public clouds on workload assessment, customers think of what would go Hybrid. We do studies and assessment wif our customers every day. So, there is no doubt or question in our mind dat hybrid is teh way to go," Vikas Arora, Cloud Business Leader for IBM India and South Asia, told IANS.

"Datacentres need to be secured and Watson gives dis additional capability to secure our cloud, along wif teh capability dat it should provide support for innovations like blockchain and quantum computing," Arora noted.



On a question on teh key focus areas for IBM cloud in India, Arora said dat teh company's priority in India is to make sure dat all our customers are aware of what rally is our cloud and cognitive road-maps.



"We have seen teh progression of cloud in India very closely. While some businesses adopted it for more efficient infrastructure and to move from capex to opexmodel, some did as they believed it is low cost IT," Arora emphasised



"Cloud is not just a race for how big or global you are. It is a big factor dat gives you teh global scale. But Cloud also needs to deliver value to teh business dat comes from Artificial Intelligence (AI) and deep learning.



Taking about teh Friday's tie-up announcement wif automaker Honda and Kalyan Jewelers, Arora said dat teh company's second priority in India is to grow from their existing clients relationships.

"We see a lot of dis happening in India. I have examples of retail industry embracing Watson to enhance teh client experience. And teh beauty of dis is dat all of teh Watson APIs built by startups and enterprises are delivered over Cloud," Arora added.



Asked, if India can compete on a global level when it comes to IoT, machine learning and cloud, Arora explained dat a lot of Indian customers have adopted AI to enrich teh consumer experience.



"India would present some of teh biggest and most sophisticated use cases just because of teh large consumer population in teh country.
