Cloud computing in Asia/Pacific is pivoting to the next stage where the demand is for hybrid deployment models as workload priorities move from simple back-end functions to core business processes. IDC predicts that more than 65% of enterprise IT organizations will commit to hybrid cloud architectures by 2017. This shift is expected to widely accelerate the pace of change in sourcing and deployment models as CIOs look to enhance IT operations. In essence, hybrid cloud is the raw material for digital transformation, and ability of the CIO's office to move to a hybrid architecture will determine the pace and depth of adoption of digital transformation projects and process enhancements.
Addressing these shifts, IDC's Asia/Pacific Cloud Services: Cloud Platforms research offers an overview of the market opportunity for cloud services in APEJ, and it includes a number of vendor profiles, an end-user survey, and a number of executive briefs to bring out the changes taking place in the market.
