This IDC Presentation discusses IDC's annual cloud summit held at the Dorchester Hotel in Central London on May 19, 2015. These three short presentations were presented to a vendor audience throughout the evening. The topics are:
- An end-user perspective on SaaS: What are the benefits, pitfalls, and best practices? IDC examined many European SaaS implementations across finance, HR, sales/service, and other areas. We will draw out the most common lessons learned and further examine business benefits, implementation pitfalls, and best practices.
- Enterprise outsourcing in the as-a-service world. IDC will explore the impact of cloud on traditional outsourcing services, looking at the development of hybrid cloud platforms and the scenarios where they become the main way enterprises consume IT. Finally, what will become of outsourcers and enterprise service providers in this scenario?
- Digital transformation: How cloud helps ensure success. Digital is fast becoming the technology buzzword for 2015. Despite of the hype, IDC believes digital is here to stay, and that it represents a long-term change in the way IT and business work together. IDC will look at the role of cloud in digital as an enabler and accelerator for these transformation initiatives.
