Cloud computing in Asia/Pacific is pivoting to the next stage of where the demand is for increasingly hybrid deployment models as workload priorities move from simple back-end functions to core business processes. IDC expects that in 2015, CIOs will move to hybrid cloud and, as part of their journey, realize existing deficiencies in service management, which will force investment in automation and consumption of externally managed services as alternatives to on-premise deployment of cloud. Key trends that will manifest themselves in the cloud market include demand for integrated DevOps, higher adoption of OpenStack solutions, and increased emphasis on operational governance and security management. Addressing these shifts, IDC's Asia/Pacific Cloud Services 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.
