This IDC study provides a detailed view of IDC's taxonomy for the extraction market called managed cloud services (MCS) that incorporates IDC's five technology outsourcing services foundation markets and its relationship to the overall portfolio of different types of cloud engagements. This taxonomy highlights how MCS is segmented into three primary markets of managed private cloud, managed public cloud, and managed hybrid cloud services and further refines these primary managed cloud services into a set of secondary markets within MCS. Finally, this taxonomy also provides a detailed framework of the role and structure of multicloud management as part of managed cloud services and how MCS is part of an evolution of technology operations that is replacing traditional (noncloud) technologies and architectures.

"IDC's worldwide managed cloud services taxonomy provides a comprehensive framework of a disruptive consumption and delivery model used to support different outsourcing-managed services markets," said David Tapper, VP, Outsourcing and Managed Cloud Services. "Ultimately, managed cloud services, along with other digital capabilities, are becoming the de facto means of supporting customer needs for managed services."
