Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Public Cloud Services Forecast, 2017–2022

Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Public Cloud Services Forecast, 2017–2022

This IDC study forecasts revenue for 20 major categories of public IT cloud services at the Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) level and across 14 countries. At the heart of this forecast is our view of the cloud as the essential foundation for the emerging second chapter of the 3rd Platform era, centered on "multiplied innovation." This chapter — extending over the next five years — will see a dramatically accelerated period of cloud-native digital innovation, built around increasingly distributed and optimized cloud platforms and ecosystems and leveraging cloud-based artificial intelligence (AI), blockchain, and hyperagile application technologies, such as containers, functions, microservices app architectures, and application programming interface (API)-based integration."In the next five years — what IDC calls the 'multiplied innovation' chapter of the 3rd Platform era — cloud adoption will surge in APEJ as developers leverage new cloud platforms and use cloud-based AI, containers, functions, blockchain, and other key technologies to create and deploy as many applications on the cloud as previous generations deployed in the past four decades. Enterprises that do not fully adopt multicloud solutions will be marginalized in this renaissance of digital innovation," says Chris Morris, VP of IDC APEJ Cloud Services Group.
