TECH SUPPLIER Feb 2021 - IDC Survey Spotlight - Doc # US47417921

What Are the Forces Driving Cloud Adoption?

By: Chris Kanthan


This IDC Survey Spotlight highlights the seven strategic objectives that drive enterprise cloud adoption. This document is based on data from IDC's 4Q20 Cloud Pulse Survey. IDC conducted this in-depth survey of 1,100 IT and finance decision makers, and a portion of this survey was focused on understanding the top priorities of enterprise cloud investments. The overall goal of IDC's 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, effects of COVID-19, and much more.

"Cloud adoption was already becoming mainstream when COVID-19 struck. Now, the pandemic has accelerated the digital economy in an unprecedented manner and enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than before. While there are many drivers of cloud adoption, vendors must understand the most critical objectives from the customer's point of view. These strategic goals are influenced by overall business vision as well as IT needs," explained Chris Kanthan, IDC research manager in the Cloud BuyerView group.
