This IDC Survey Spotlight examines the motivating factors of early adopters and intenders of PCaaS. The survey was fielded in six countries (United States, United Kingdom, Germany, China, India, and Australia) and closed in January 2017.

PCaaS offers significant potential benefits in the form of cost reduction, workload reduction, and accelerate refresh. Messaging to the right benefit should provide vendors with better footing in this potentially disruptive market.
