TECH SUPPLIER Sep 2021 - IDC Survey Spotlight - Doc # US48238521
Enterprises Will Pursue Diverse Cloud Strategies to Compete in a Digital-First World
This IDC Survey Spotlight provides insights from IDC's Future Enterprise Resiliency and Spending (FERS) Survey, Wave 7, conducted in July 2021. The purpose of the FERS survey series (12 monthly surveys) is to explore a range of topics related to IT spending priorities, digital resiliency, and technology/organizational priorities. One of the key topics covered in wave 7 was the different strategies that enterprises are adopting to take full advantage of the cross-functional sets of foundational cloud services (FCS) for compute, data, and app frameworks delivered by leading cloud services providers. The primary goal behind these diverse strategies is to gain faster access to the digital infrastructure and digital innovation technologies underpinning their digital transformation efforts.
"Individuals, companies, and governments expect digital-based capabilities to improve lives and desired outcomes, so enterprises are adopting a cross-functional set of foundational cloud services to speed their access to the technologies underpinning their digital transformation efforts. IDC finds, however, that enterprises around the world will adopt a diverse range of cloud deployment strategies, forcing leading cloud providers to develop a range of offerings and partnerships tuned to different strategies." — Rick Villars, group vice president, Worldwide Research at IDC.
