This IDC Presentation presents the results from IDC's 2019 Cloud Pulse Survey, which involves 931 respondents from key industry verticals (financial services, manufacturing, distribution, profession services, public sector, and infrastructure, and technology services) across Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ). The study focuses on the adoption of cloud services, including public, private, multicloud, and hybrid cloud models and their trade-offs. It highlights the demand-side view on current and future cloud investments and adoption rates, multicloud and hybrid cloud strategy, and opportunities to address the respective vertical cloud markets.
The results show that the financial services sector leads, whereas the public services and manufacturing sectors lag in cloud adoption as more workloads shift to cloud. Organizations' "ideal state" will be a hybrid IT environment as hybrid and multicloud approaches are becoming the norm. On-premise private cloud is still the preferred deployment choice, especially for the manufacturing sector, as public cloud is more favorable with an industry that lacks economy of scale.
