The market is in flux. The new world order is in view and so is the business landscape.

While we are still finding a way out of the Corona pandemic, the realities that these views beckon cannot be ignored. Business continuity planning and execution are in full swing across. What comes next? Given the goal remains the same – net new customer acquisition, deep market penetration and accelerating business growth, the job is easy, but not without some modifications. While technology and digital are playing its part in sustaining collaboration and customer outreach, but they are worthy only if you know ‘whom’ to reach out to! Yes, it is the new normal that we are going face tomorrow that has exponentially changed the face of today.

The new requirements

The power of a scalable and contactable database, especially cloud-based database systems are on the upswing. Not without its reasons. It owes its background to the diversification of data, data up-gradation and digital transformation of data from the business stand-point. That said, the use-case of your business is still the determinant of the type of database and database service that is required.

S&P Global Ratings in its recent report (March 23, 2020) forecast the economic impact of the virus outbreak to the tune of $400 billion loss for the Asia-Pacific. This couple with the fact that the countries in APAC are all at different levels of pandemic trajectory. While China is bouncing back, India is straining to flatten its growth curve and still, others are at all-time high fatality rate. This sure is a good shakedown to the market. No one knows how long the downtime is going to stay, but what is clearly visible is that this means that whitespace shall undergo major rejig and the market pie would undergo segmentation change.
