Frost & Sullivan Global Cloud User Survey, Q4 2021

This research service presents the findings of the global cloud user survey conducted by Frost & Sullivan between October 2021 and November 2021 to derive insights on cloud adoption, deployment, and usage. The primary goal of this research is to analyze the cloud computing technology adoption trends among healthcare organizations, including top business strategic goals, preferred cloud deployment models, and information technology (IT), and identify the business challenges in cloud migration and cloud repatriation as well as the expansion opportunities for healthcare cloud providers.

Patient demands for connected care, healthcare data interoperability, and virtual care technology such as telehealth and remote patient monitoring to enable provider-patient collaboration have led to a greater focus on the cloud in healthcare. The COVID-19 pandemic accelerated digitization in healthcare, resulting in a new era of technology adoption in the industry. The need for secured data storage and privacy had a positive impact on the healthcare cloud market, accelerating digitization and pushing healthcare organizations to adopt end-to-end hybrid cloud and multi-cloud strategies.

The regional segmentation of this survey is as follows:
• North America (The United States and Canada)
• Latin America (Brazil and Mexico)
• Europe and the Middle East
• The Asia-Pacific
