Asia/Pacific Cloud Services: Cloud Platforms

Cloud computing in Asia/Pacific is pivoting to the next stage where the demand is for multicloud and hybrid cloud deployment models as workload priorities move from simple back-end functions to core business processes. IDC survey indicates that 50% of enterprise IT budgets are committed to cloud architectures currently and is expected to increase over the next two years along with the adoption of hybrid cloud. This shift is expected to widely accelerate the pace of change in sourcing and deployment models as CIOs look to enhance IT operations. In essence, hybrid cloud is the raw material for digital transformation, and ability of the CIO's office to move to a hybrid architecture will determine the pace and depth of adoption of digital transformation projects and process enhancements.

Addressing these shifts, IDC's Asia/Pacific Cloud Services: Cloud Platforms research offers an overview of the market opportunity for cloud services, cloud software, and the related ecosystem that is developing in APEJ. Research will cover vendor profiles, an end-user survey, and a number of executive briefs to bring out the changes taking place in the market and will be of value also to ISVs and service providers seeking to understand the cloud market in the region.
