It examines the maturity of cloud adoption in New Zealand and profiles the market by employee size and vertical industry, along with a five-year forecast to 2021. The presentation examines the characteristics of cloud adoption in connection with end-user/vendor engagement, technology investment patterns, deployment strategies, governance, initiatives prioritisation, adoption challenges, and platform and application workload allocation. It also provides actionable advice for both end users and vendors. </P><P>It is mainly based on IDC's Asia/Pacific CloudView Study 2017 (NZ n = 200). </P><P>"Traditional in-house IT and outsource structures continue to decline from a workload application perspective with a clear intent to shift towards cloud-based architectures," says Adam Dodds, research director for IDC ANZ Channel Strategies, Alliances, and Brokerage. "The New Zealand cloud market will see a net increase in spend by customer volume across the market. For end users to increase their relative cloud maturity and capitalise on the opportunity, there is a need for transitional investment across private cloud, public cloud, and professional services. At the same time, with hybrid and multicloud becoming the accepted architecture for the majority of New Zealand organisations, it is important to realise that there is no standard template for an organisation to work to. This means that despite businesses being of the same industry, geography, or size, the mix of usage of on-premise to off-premise and into public cloud will be unique to each organisation."</P> Market Presentation Tue, 19 Sep 2017 04:00:00 GMT Adam Dodds, Donnie Krassiyenko, Emma Beeby IDC's Worldwide Digital Transformation Use Case Taxonomy, 2017: Banking Update <P>This IDC study discusses how the banking digital mission is driven by the need to improve customer engagement in selling, delivering, and servicing financial products, payments, and services; the need to improve the institution's "brand trust" through a more transparent and secure environment; and, most importantly, the need to disrupt its own business model by connecting to adjacent markets in order to expand the relationship with its customers.</P><P>"The best-in-class banks globally are approaching digital transformation in a systematic way that looks for efficient and secure ways of conducting business while enabling agility to better serve their customers and open the doors to expanded business models through connections to value-adding partners," states Jerry Silva, research director, Global Banking, IDC Financial Insights.</P> Taxonomy Tue, 19 Sep 2017 04:00:00 GMT Jerry Silva, Marc DeCastro, Michael Araneta, Bill Fearnley, Lawrence Freeborn, Karen Massey, James Wester, Shawn Fitzgerald, Thomas Zink Japan System Management Software as a Service Forecast, 2017−2021 <P>This IDC study is a translation of the Japanese document IDC #<B><A href="/getdoc.jsp?containerId=JPJ41782817">JPJ41782817</A></B> that classifies the Japan system management software-as-a-service (SaaS) market in terms of its functional segment and provides market forecast from 2017 to 2021. </P><P>"System management SaaS is already becoming a standard for IT operations in Europe and the United States.
