Saudi Arabia Public Cloud Market 2020 Analysis and 2021–2025 Forecast

By: Manish RanjanSenior Program Manager, Uzair MujtabaProgram Manager - IDC Saudi Arabia, Mohammed Azim AnsariResearch Analyst

Abstract

In this study, IDC analyzes Saudi Arabia's public cloud services market in 2020 and provides market forecasts for the 2021–2025 period.

"The government is the biggest driver of digital initiatives, with numerous modernization projects in which cloud is a foundation layer. Continuous investments by local and global technology providers in the country into new datacenters have accelerated cloud adoption, as these domestically located facilities meet Saudi Arabia's data residency and governance regulations. These investments have also given rise to hybrid multicloud environments — public and private clouds that coexist with traditional on-premises infrastructure. However, the market still faces challenges around cloud expertise and skills, legacy infrastructure unsuitable for upgrading to cloud, and a mindset that considers cloud insecure." — Senior Program Manager Manish Ranjan, Software and Cloud, IDC Middle East, Turkey and Africa (META)
