  • European Multicloud Infrastructure Readiness – Data and Learnings Mar 27 2018 1:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Giorgio Nebuloni, Michael Ceroici
    Cloud is radically changing the way we do business, making #cloudfirst strategies an essential mandate for European organizations. As part of this movement, Multicloud is an imperative that many organizations are striving for. Multicloud can enable significant IT cost savings, greater control over compliance and data security, and provide enhanced functionality through the selection of advanced IT cloud services.

    While Multicloud brings a multitude of advantages for organizations, the solutions are not straightforward. The toolbox is diverse, and successful strategies need to address areas such as cloud cost monitoring, cloud compliancy (GDPR) policies, and holistic connectivity strategies into multiple cloud environments. IT Buyers also need to take different approaches to Multicloud based on existing infrastructure, internal skillsets, existing procurement strategies, and company size and location. Multicloud challenges extend to vendors and services providers, who need to adapt their consumption models and compliance policies to a rapidly changing market.

    How can buyers discover where they sit in the Multicloud Readiness process, and where to go next? How can vendors and service providers best guide buyers towards building successful Multicloud infrastructure? What are the Multicloud adoption rates in Europe and what learnings can be found from organizations making the journey?

    Please join Giorgio Nebuloni and team on March 27th, 2018, where these questions along with key findings from IDC’s Multicloud Readiness Survey will be presented. Essential guidance to European buyers and vendors will also be provided through IDC’s Multicloud Readiness Framework, as organizations plan their Multicloud strategies for 2018 and onwards.

    Giorgio Nebuloni, Kamil Gregor
    Infrastructure spending is shifting towards services providers. Most of the data already resides with service providers and where are currently at a tipping point when a majority of spending on servers, storage and networking takes place in the service provider segment of the market. With this shift is spending, innovation and key skills are expected to shift as well. Service providers are already at the center stage in many aspects of Digital Transformation, from technology to operations.

    At the same time, it is not only the size of the market that is changing, it is also its structure. For example, with rapid growth of ODMs in the region, competition in the market intensifies. In these circumstances, it is more important than ever to understand the rapidly evolving service provider market in a greater detail than ever.

    After almost a year of research, IDC rolls out a brand new detailed view on infrastructure spending in the service provider market, segmenting the market by service provider type and tier 1-3 and tracking ODM spending and other aspects, such as in which geography the purchasing decisions are made as opposed to where the shipments land.
