IDC PlanScape: Building or Joining an Industry Collaborative Cloud

This IDC study discusses building or joining an industry collaborative cloud. With industries changing quickly, and so many new and existing actors in the value chain, all companies need to make well-informed decisions on how they are positioned. Virtually all companies will be impacted — ignoring this fact is a pseudo-decision that could end up costing a company dearly. "As more enterprises commercialize their internal intellectual property (IP) and expertise, there is a huge opportunity for companies in nearly every industry to get involved as both buyers and suppliers in the industry cloud market. All companies need to pay attention and make informed decisions on their stance. No matter what companies are participating, the competitive landscape will change," states Erik Berggren, vice president, Cloud Strategies, at IDC.
