Chris Kanthan

This IDC Survey Spotlight reveals insights on how COVID-19 will impact next year's enterprise spending on various cloud and noncloud models. This document is based on data from IDC's Cloud Pulse Survey conducted in 4Q20. IDC conducted this in-depth survey of 1,100 IT and finance decision makers, and a portion of this survey was focused on understanding how the global pandemic will affect spending patterns and priorities related to cloud and noncloud infrastructure. The overall goal of the Cloud Pulse Survey series is to identify the cloud adoption curve, buyer behavior among enterprise cloud customers, technology trends related to the cloud computing market, workload patterns, vendor ratings, the effects of COVID-19, and much more.

"COVID-19 has fast-forwarded the digital economy into the future. The global pandemic has dramatically impacted virtually all sectors and enterprises. The enormous disruption to the global economy, supply chains, working and living patterns, and consumer experience has forced enterprises to reimagine their business models, products, and services. The result is accelerated digital transformation that is underpinned by public and private clouds. Agile and resilient enterprises are increasing their cloud investments to adapt, innovate, cut costs, become data driven, and thrive in these challenging times. However, there are interesting insights into how enterprises invest in different cloud models," explained Chris Kanthan, research manager in IDC's Cloud BuyerView group.
