This IDC Survey Spotlight shows data from the Australia sample of IDC's 2018 CloudView Survey results. CloudView is IDC's premiere global benchmarking web survey, fielded annually. The 2018 survey covered 2,000 respondents from countries across Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ), with 150 respondents coming from Australia, and asked heavy cloud-using qualified respondents a wide range of questions on cloud adoption and strategy. The survey topics included the adoption of specific cloud workloads, maturity, triggers for change, transformation criteria, spending decisions, and expected benefits of public, private, and hybrid cloud.
This IDC Survey Spotlight shows the results of what triggers users to consider and deploy cloud services in Australia.
The survey question was, "Which of the following 'trigger factors' or events have been (or would be) the most important in leading you to use or seriously consider using cloud services?"
