This IDC Survey Spotlight shows data for open source adoption in Australia from IDC's 2016 and 2017 CloudView Survey results. The CloudView Survey (2016 and 2017) is IDC's premier global benchmarking web survey fielded annually. The survey has reached thousands of respondents from countries across Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) and has asked qualified heavy cloud users a wide range of questions surrounding cloud. The survey topics include the adoption of specific cloud workloads, maturity, triggers for change, transformation criteria, spending decisions, and expected benefits of public, private, and hybrid cloud.

This report shows the importance respondents place on open source cloud stacks and standards in light of their cloud strategies.

This survey asks, "how important are the cloud stack technologies to your organisation's cloud strategy?"
