Managed CloudView 2022: Optimizing the Cloud Matrix of Public Cloud Providers as Partners for Managed Cloud Services
This IDC Market Presentation, which utilizes worldwide findings from IDC's 2022 Managed CloudView Survey, provides a detailed analysis of the preferred public cloud provider on which enterprises and organizations want to deploy hardware and software assets as part of engagements in which managed service providers (SPs) will provide managed cloud services to support these assets on public clouds. The survey utilized for this study was deployed worldwide and involved polling 1,500 end users to collect information on adoption of managed cloud services by enterprises and organizations with 1,000+ employees.
The analysis in this study is centered on which of five public cloud providers (AWS, Azure, Google, IBM, and Alibaba) firms want to deploy their assets when consumed as part of managed cloud services. The results of this analysis provide what IDC refers to as a "cloud matrix" that presents a view across these public cloud providers by the following asset classes according to six different countries and a range of industries:
- Enterprise applications (SAP, Oracle, Microsoft)
- Innovative technologies (analytics, IoT, 5G, blockchain, AR/VR, SDI, cognitive/AI, quantum computing)
- Development and deployment software (data management [e.g., databases, data lakes], analytics and business intelligence, artificial intelligence/machine learning, application development tools, quality and life-cycle tools [e.g., testing and assurance], integration/orchestration middleware)
- Systems infrastructure software (system/service management, endpoint management, network software, security software, storage software, physical and virtual computing [OS, software defined, VMs, containers])
- Infrastructure (general computing, storage, edge computing, hybrid cloud [combination of private and public cloud], network and content delivery/VPN/WAN, end-user computing/VDI, serverless computing)
This presentation begins with an executive summary. This summary highlights key messages in optimizing a cloud matrix with managed cloud services, the top 5 research highlights and findings, strategic messages for managed SPs, a framework that IDC refers to as an integrated matrix that combines a value matrix with a cloud matrix, and IDC's essential guidance for managed SPs.
It then provides an in-depth analysis by each of the five asset classes as highlighted previously and where enterprises and organizations want to deploy these assets across the five public cloud providers (AWS, Azure, Google, IBM, and Alibaba) as partners to managed SPs. There is a dedicated section for each of the five asset classes that not just highlights where firms want to deploy these assets across these five public cloud providers but also provides insight into which assets firms would most want to use on public cloud provider platforms in general.
"This IDC Market Presentation provides insight into the preferred public cloud provider on which enterprises and organizations want to deploy hardware and software assets across five different asset classes as part of engagements in which managed service providers (SPs) will provide managed cloud services to support these assets on public clouds," said David Tapper, VP, Outsourcing and Managed Cloud Services, at IDC. "This study also provides a framework by which managed SPs can optimize opportunities in working with public cloud providers as partners in delivering managed cloud services while supporting these assets that involves creating a robust governance structure, implementing a well-defined operating model, clearly defining roles and responsibilities of partners, investing in centers of excellence, building an integrated digital services supply chain, and creating a mapping of an integrated matrix that links the value of public cloud providers to a cloud matrix of where to deploy assets by public cloud provider."
