This IDC Survey Spotlight illustrates platform-as-a-service (PaaS) adoption and maturity levels within the enterprise for 2020. The document contains data from IDC's Application Services Survey, which was completed in December 2019. IDC's Worldwide Intelligent Application Services practice conducted this survey to understand enterprise perceptions of PaaS and other application life-cycle management activities. The overall goal of the survey was to identify how organizations have been and will be approaching application life-cycle management today as well as the future, and how application service providers can align their offerings to address varying customer needs.
"Providers of application services should understand how organizations are approaching their application life-cycle management and underlying application portfolio strategies so that they are well positioned to support evolving customer needs and cultivate and maintain deeper customer relationships with their clients," explained Pete Marston, research director, Worldwide Intelligent Application Services.
