IDC MarketScape: Canadian Data Centre Operations and Management 2016 Vendor Assessment
This IDC study presents a vendor assessment of the data centre operations and management market through the IDC MarketScape model. It covers aspects such as space, power, connectivity, and value-added services. The study also considers partner ecosystems for resale and facilitating cloud platforms. Most importantly, this IDC MarketScape assesses data centre providers' capabilities in helping Canadian companies migrate from corporate-run, on-premise facilities to third-party centres and hybrid environments.
Since 2014, IDC Canada has published four IDC MarketScape documents on the Canadian cloud-based infrastructure services market. Collectively, these documents have been groundbreaking in their detailed vendor assessment and guidance provided to business and IT leaders. The IDC MarketScape research also set new ground in identifying trends such as the expansion of cloud well beyond discrete public and private use cases. Canadian businesses are multisourcing cloud services and integrating the use of infrastructure as a service (IaaS) with on-premise systems to form hybrid computing platforms. Throughout our research, it became obvious that the majority of businesses were not shifting wholesale to cloud but were migrating toward a combination of traditional data centre and cloud technologies. "IDC decided to go old school," says Mark Schrutt, vice president, Services and Enterprise Applications.
