IDC MarketScape: Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service 2023 Vendor Assessment
This IDC study provides an assessment of Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ) public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) providers through the IDC MarketScape model.
"APEJ technology buyers will continue to invest in cloud technologies to scale their digital business, although they might be compelled to balance these investments with potential cloud budget reduction because of the imminent recession and ongoing uncertainties about a resurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic. In IDC's conversations with CIOs of regional organizations, security, data and analytics, infrastrucuture and operations, and customer experience are less susceptible to budget cuts," says Estelle Quek, senior research manager, Cloud Buyer Trends and Intentions research.
"According to IDC Worldwide Black Book Live Edition, December 2022, 57% of global enterprise infrastructure spend in 2022 was on IaaS. IDC anticipates that APEJ technology buyers will hasten leveraging IaaS to reduce risks associated with capital-intensive expenditure to run their digital business efficiently and profitably, augment resiliency and agility to navigate the storms of disruption, plus remain relevant and competitive. Furthermore, technology buyers are pursuing consistent security, performance, and compliance by deploying, operating, and scaling digital infrastructure across core on premises, cloud, and edge locations," adds Quek.
