IDC MaturityScape Benchmark: Cloud in Western Europe, 2017
This IDC study presents the results of IDC's 2016 CloudView Survey for cloud maturity in European organizations. The IDC MaturityScape Benchmark enables organizations to assess their adoption and use of cloud technologies against their peers in Europe and to support strategies to progress the use of cloud based on their business goals.This study should be viewed as a supplement to IDC MaturityScape: Cloud (IDC #259534, October 2015), which describes IDC's cloud maturity framework and identifies the stages, dimensions, outcomes, and actions required for companies to deliver impact and business outcomes. Together, they provide a comprehensive overview of IDC's cloud maturity model and help guide European organizations to evolve to a stage where their cloud implementations offer competitive differentiation and enable them to deploy new, innovative processes, products, and services quickly."Cloud adoption is accelerating quickly in Europe, despite concerns about security and data sovereignty," said Carla Arend, program director, European software and infrastructure research team, IDC. "European organizations are taking a very pragmatic approach to cloud adoption, implementing cloud where it makes sense for agility and cost reasons. In addition, they are now ready to implement cloud across the organization because they understand the use cases. The availability of cloud services from local datacenters is driving cloud adoption further."
