Western Europe Public Cloud Platform Forecast, 2017–2022

This IDC Market Forecast provides a view of the expected evolution of the public cloud platform in Western Europe from the tracked and measured data of 2017 to the 2018–2022 forecast period. The report includes detailed views on public platform-as-a-service spending in five domains, as well as detailed views on public cloud platform revenue in five subregions in Europe."Public cloud platforms are disrupting traditional IT delivery models in a manner unseen during the past several decades. In the past, IT disruption took place at the mere technology level, posing perpetual challenges for the IT department and the larger enterprise (e.g., how to deploy and adopt in-house; how to provision, scale, and support; etc.). With public cloud platforms, as products become instances/services, the value and role of IT is set to change dramatically. Public cloud platforms create a level playing field, where start-up organizations are able compete head to head with large resourceful enterprises. Agility, flexibility, and value creation have never been more important than today in the IT department," said George Mironescu, research manager, IDC Cloud Platforms.
