This IDC Survey examines how worldwide organization plans for cloud spending vary by IaaS and PaaS technology categories as well as by region for 2023. IT leaders face an array of conflicting challenges in 2023 as they develop IT budgeting plans that anticipate potential economic disruptions while still maintaining the shift to digital-first business models. IDC's Global Technology Thought Leadership group conducts a monthly survey (IDC's Future Enterprise Resiliency and Spending Survey) to understand how IT and business leaders in enterprises around the world are assessing risks and addressing cost management for their growing portfolio of technology resources.

This IDC Survey was conducted in January 2023 while IT leaders were finalizing technology budget plans for 2023. IDC asked 1,032 IT leaders in North America, Latin America, Asia/Pacific, and Western Europe to indicate how concerns about inflation, recession skills shortages, and other developments are affecting 2023 budget plans. This document focuses on spending plans for 2023 across IaaS and PaaS categories, as follows:


  • Cloud connectivity/interconnection services (internet exchange, cloud core transit services, metro and other datacenter interconnection services)
