This IDC Survey Spotlight highlights a data point from IDC's annual Worldwide Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) Special Report Survey, conducted in November 2022. Respondents included more than 650 enterprise IT practitioners who currently use or plan to use a cloud connect or interconnect partner for multicloud connectivity and/or site-to-site connectivity. Survey topics included trends in WAN transformation, SD-WAN deployment preferences, SD-Branch and SASE architectures, multicloud networking and interconnect, and SD-WAN partner preferences. The question featured in this IDC Survey Spotlight asked respondents about the top networking use cases for which they would choose a cloud interconnect partner. The responses highlight key use cases that include connectivity between an enterprise's own sites and to vendor clouds hosting their applications.

"The cloud networking market continues to rapidly evolve as enterprises across the globe prioritize modernizing and transforming their networks to ensure better performance and richer digital experience across updated application infrastructure environments," says Taranvir Singh, research manager, Cloud Networking Services, at IDC.
