On-line Presentation


This IDC Market Presentation segments global spend on IaaS and PaaS in the year 2018 by enterprise workloads. Structured data management, app dev and testing, and data analytics workloads are the top workloads contributing to public cloud spend on IaaS and PaaS offerings. IDC's workloads research tracks worldwide spend on server and storage hardware to power enterprise workloads across multiple deployment models and locations. IDC's Workloads Taxonomy classifies enterprise workloads into 18 workload types among 7 workload categories. IDC also estimates enterprise spend on public cloud infrastructure to exceed the spend on traditional IT infrastructure.

"Enterprises spend on public cloud infrastructure is growing at a faster rate than on traditional IT infrastructure," said Sriram Subramanian, research director, Infrastructure System, Platforms, and Technologies Group at IDC. "As enterprises migrate their strategic and critical workloads to public cloud infrastructure, we expect to see certain workloads growing faster than others on public cloud infrastructure. This provides opportunities to cloud service providers to invest in the right infrastructure and prioritize services to enable such workloads."
