He included that in the existing market, hyperscale cloud providers are driving the cloud agenda.This is because of emerging innovations such as generative AI supported by large language models, Web3 and the metaverse driving what Gartner refers to as”the next stage of digital organization”and all of which need powerful computing capabilities to process data in genuine time.Nag stated that the next stage of IaaS will likewise be driven by emerging technologies, particularly as used to customer experience. He explains that many of these technologies also help businesses engage much better with their customers in genuine time, for instance with generative AI-powered chatbots, and are dependent upon cloud infrastructure and platform services to meet growing demands for compute and storage power. In a separate report released by Gartner in January, the analyst company predicted that by 2025, 30%of outbound marketing messages from large organizations will be synthetically created, up from less than 2% in 2022.”Cloudprovides the ideal service and platform. It is no coincidence that the crucial gamers in the generative AI race are cloud hyperscalers,”Nag stated.
