This IDC Survey document examines various conditions and issues supporting the adoption of managed cloud services in Canada based on early adopters in other geographies. With greater adoption of public and private cloud services, Canadian companies have increasingly considered using managed cloud services like their peer groups worldwide have done. However, as seen in adoption of other cloud services, Canadian organizations have different reasons to adopt cloud services, and different preferences in services, than peers in other countries.
This IDC Survey examines several key adoption issues for Canadian customers of managed cloud services based on similar, previous IDC studies from other countries. This Survey draws responses from 299 large and medium-sized organizations surveyed as part of the IDC Canada's IT Advisory Panel n2, 2019.
