IDC Service Provider Pulse 1Q18 Quarterly Summary
The IDC Service Provider Pulse delivers quarterly insights into the requirements of cloud service providers — focusing on evolving business models, emerging product and service offerings, and providers' own investments in technology. The insights generated help technology vendors target their markets more effectively (sell to/sell with/sell through), provide guidance for developing new solutions based on ongoing intelligence (investments, behaviors), and improve their sales strategies and messaging as business and product trends evolve.
The 1Q18 Quarterly Summary provides an Executive Summary and Overview of the first of four surveys conducted during 2018. Exploring the topic of digital transformation, 500 IT leaders and line-of-business executives at tier 2 and tier 3 cloud service providers across North America, EMEA, and APAC detail their business strategies, service investment plans, and partnering needs.
