This IDC Presentation is part of IDC's New Zealand Heatmap series. It examines the maturity of cloud adoption in New Zealand (NZ) and profiles the market by vertical industry. The presentation examines characteristics of cloud adoption in connection to end-user/vendor engagement, technology investment patterns, deployment strategies, governance, initiatives prioritisation, adoption challenges, and platform and app workload allocation. It also provides an actionable advice for both end users and vendors.
This presentation is based on IDC's Asia/Pacific CloudView Study 2016 (NZ, n = 200).
"New Zealand organisations are moving away from traditional IT and traditional infrastructure outsourcing, driven by the necessity to keep pace with the digital revolution brought by the 3rd Platform. The necessity for commercial and technical refresh acts as an acceleration for the adoption of cloud-based consumption models," says Adam Dodds, research director, IDC Australia/New Zealand. He adds, "The challenge of maturity lies in a considerable amount of investment, focus, and alignment required across the business. As organisations shift from on- to off-premise private cloud, leveraging public cloud and adopting integration platforms for scale and orchestration capability, aggregated cloud retains the highest level of investment focus."
