This IDC Presentation is part of IDC New Zealand's 3rd Platform Heatmap series. The analysis is based on IDC's Asia/Pacific CloudView Study 2018. It examines factors and trends shaping the New Zealand cloud market. The report provides an overview of deployed cloud initiatives by New Zealand organisations as well as a breakdown of IDC's cloud forecast. Other points of interest include cloud challenges, benefits, and trigger factors.
Cloud has strong adoption in New Zealand, as organisations wish to shift some of their up-front financial burden by moving from a capex model to an opex model. Public cloud revenue is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.2% to 2022, where SaaS is expected to capture the largest revenue share. Private cloud revenue is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% to 2022, driven by virtual private cloud, hosted infrastructure services, and hosted application markets.
At a local level, Chayse Gorton, market analyst, IT Services and Blockchain, says, "There is a large opportunity for vendors to sell security-as-a-service offerings, as many organisations believe that solution providers can offer better security than the level of security that their own in-house IT security team can provide." This is further backed by the finding that the majority of organisations also tend to believe that a cloud security solution should be used to secure cloud applications and infrastructure.
Gorton believes that New Zealand organisations are moving beyond considering "should I move to the cloud?" to "what will happen if I don't move to the cloud?" As such, this report provides information critical for vendors to understand, that will help them guide their clients on a cloud journey unique to them.
