Digital Innovation with Cloud

Cloud is the engine of digital transformation, and it is important to get cloud transformation right enterprise-wide. In 2021, the European IaaS public cloud market is set to grow 30.3%, higher than both SaaS and PaaS. ​Cloud is not just “someone else’s computer,” but requires new technical and business skills, organizational change, new roles, and new work methods.
IDC undertook cloud adoption research, including a benchmark survey, to assess where organizations are on their cloud journey, as well as exploring their attitudes, usage, and future outlook of the cloud in achieving their business outcomes. The research benchmarks organizations on three stages of their cloud journey — Cloud Experimenter, Cloud Optimizer, and Cloud Innovator. The research reveals that organizations with more cloud experience are running their cloud infrastructure more effectively and driving a greater degree of digital innovation than their competitors.
