UAE Public Cloud Market Forecast, 2022-2027
This IDC Market Forecast document analyzes forecasts for the UAE public cloud services market over the 2022–2027 period.
"The UAE is one of the top adopters of cloud computing services within the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region. Requirements around data residency and sovereignty, as well as continuous investments in in-country cloud datacenters by global hyperscalers, have accelerated the adoption of public cloud services across industries and business segments. As more hyperscalers launch in-country datacenters and partner with local cloud service providers, we anticipate greater adoption of public cloud services. We also expect to see the hybrid multicloud trend gain considerable traction, with customers having multiple options to choose from across different cloud service providers while maintaining a sharp focus on the issue of sovereignty." — Nitesh Rathi, senior research analyst for software and cloud, IDC MEA
