Cloud computing is reshaping the IT marketplace, creating new opportunities for suppliers, and catalyzing changes in traditional IT offerings. Over the next three years, IDC expects spending on public IT cloud services to grow almost fivefold, reaching $19.5 billion in Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) or APEJ by 2016. Additionally, spending on cloud computing will be augmented throughout the forecast period by enterprise adoption of private cloud technologies and by enterprise and service provider consumption of IT professional services, resulting in cloud services delivering CAGRs in excess of 30% between 2012 and 2016. 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.
