“There are customers who are making the first move towards digitisation and the digitally enabled ones who are looking to widen the gap and get into agile services, and they are looking for app modernisation and a multi-cloud approach,” said Anantharaman.

In the coming year, the company expects growth to come from app modernisation, customers opting for multi-cloud and hybrid cloud adoption and database automation, he said.

In August, Nutanix announced that it had received a $750 million investment from Bain Capital Private Equity towards its growth initiatives.

Anantharaman said this would allow the company to continue investing in its innovation initiatives.
