Navigating the Shift to Cloud
Since 2008, IDC has been following the rapid adoption of cloud computing within the Asia Pacific region. Our ongoing research shows that cloud will drive changes in the way IT spending decisions will be made for the next 5 years, fundamentally altering the way IT serves the business. With so much change ahead, IT leaders need information about the business value of new cloud-based applications. Current technical assessments are no longer as valid as they were, now that it is the business managers paying for the new application. Central to these decisions will be a decision about which workloads should be hosted in a private cloud and which in a public cloud – and if they should be in the cloud at all.
