IDC MaturityScape Benchmark: Cloud in Australia and New Zealand, 2018

By: Prabhitha Sheethal DcruzSenior Market Analyst, Cloud Services, Chris MorrisVice President, IDC Asia/Pacific

Abstract

IDC's MaturityScape for cloud assists organisations to realistically assess their current capabilities, articulating reasonable short- and long-term goals, identifying their gaps, and beginning an action plan for change. The IDC MaturityScape specifically defines the stages, critical measures, business outcomes, and actions that are required to effectively move through the stages and increase value as more investments are made. Using the maturity measures and descriptions in the document, readers can:

  • Understand exactly what sets "thriving" organisations apart from "surviving" organisations, based on their maturity scores
  • Understand industry and peer group expectations for business outcomes and IT outcomes for an increasingly mature (sophisticated) use of cloud in how organisations operationalise their internal IT assets and how they source capability on the public (provider-based) cloud
  • Understand the supporting processes, governance models, technologies, and skills to deliver cloud-based service delivery models to their internal customers
  • Identify gaps in overall cloud management capabilities based on the aforementioned criteria — or more broadly, vision, technology, people, and process

"Speed and agility have become the key drivers for cloud adoption. More organisations in the region are adopting a cloud-first strategy and cloud infrastructure has now become the preferred option for IT modernization," said Chris Morris, VP, APEJ Cloud Services and Cloud Partner Program. "Organisations need a more consistent and standardised availability of automated cloud resources to enable developers and line-of business (LOB) teams to execute at speed and cost. Workload portability and application delivery across multiple clouds will be key to build a robust cloud services delivery platform for agility."
