This IDC Survey Spotlight analyzes the results of a survey of over 500 technology influencers and decision makers in the Middle East. The respondents were employed in organizations that either have already implemented public cloud solutions or plan to do so in the next two years.
"Many businesses based in the Middle East have ramped up deployment of public cloud-based solutions. A major market driver of cloud adoption worldwide is continuous investment in datacenter buildouts in key markets, such as those in the Middle East. This practice overcomes the biggest hurdle of many organizations to using datacenters — namely, the necessity to move data out of the country or region." — Software and Cloud Program Manager Manish Ranjan, IDC Middle East, Turkey, and Africa
