This IDC study uses the IDC MarketScape model to provide an assessment of managed cloud services (MCS) providers with specific offerings and capabilities in the segment. It discusses both the quantitative and qualitative characteristics that lead to success in the ecosystem. The evaluation is based on a comprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses vendors relative to one another and the criteria, and highlights the factors expected to be the most influential for success in the market in both the short and the long term.

"Throughout the pandemic, cloud has proven to be an indispensable lever for enterprises to accelerate transformation and achieve critical resilience and faster time to market," said Cathy Huang, associate research director, IDC Asia/Pacific Services & Security Research. "A well-chosen managed cloud partner is crucial to navigating the public, private, and hybrid cloud, across platform as a service (PaaS), software as a service (SaaS), and infrastructure as a service (IaaS) landscapes. Their expertise and offerings not only accelerate companies' cloud journey, but also help organizations realize sustainable and long-term goals," Huang concluded.

"The cloud has emerged as the operating model of choice for enterprises looking to accelerate and scale their transformation. However, successful realization of the plethora of benefits promised by the cloud demands careful planning and efficient orchestration to navigate the complexities of a hybrid and multi cloud estate. Partnering with a managed cloud services vendor with the right set of capabilities and skills provides an enterprise with the means to achieve its cloud objectives while minimizing significant implementation and operational risks," added Pushkaraksh Shanbhag, associate research director, IDC Asia/Pacific Software and Services Research.

"Meeting compliance/regulatory and security requirements has now become table stakes for any managed cloud services providers. To cater to this end-user demand, MCS providers are investing in extending partnership with a broad ecosystem of partners to meet industry-level compliance requirements and provide security across customers' multicloud/hybrid cloud environments," says Prabhitha Dcruz, research manager, Asia Pacific Cloud Services.
