IDC surveyed 841 CIOs and IT decision makers across 11 countries in the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa (META) region in January 2021. The purpose of this survey was to gauge the level of cloud adoption across organizations in the region. IDC looked at current and planned cloud investments trends, approaches toward cloud, the business benefits of cloud transitions, and the challenges limiting cloud uptake.
Based on the survey results, this IDC Survey Spotlight provides a high-level view of the factors that META organizations consider when selecting cloud services providers.
"Organizations across META consider deep technical and industry expertise, availability of a wide range of cloud services, and a strong partnership ecosystem as extremely important criteria when selecting a suitable cloud service provider." — Software and Cloud Program Manager Manish Ranjan, IDC META
