Cloud Investments Underlie Strategies for Economic Growth and Recovery

In terms of technology adoption, Asia-Pacific (APAC) is a tale of two regions. Industrialized nations, including China, Japan, and South Korea, are mature in their use of cloud and other advanced technologies. In contrast, emerging economies in Southeast Asia lag in their cloud journeys, often hindered by inconsistent access to high-capacity networks and data center infrastructure. Both types of economies-advanced and emerging-are relying on technology investments to help them grow.

In the 2023 Frost & Sullivan Global Cloud User Survey, IT decision makers from APAC businesses share their perceptions and behaviors concerning cloud adoption. The following are among the findings:

  •      Three-quarters of APAC businesses agree that the cloud is essential to business success, with the strongest sentiment coming from China at 89%.
  •      Businesses deploy apps in the cloud as a way to cut costs and introduce business agility amid post-pandemic uncertainty. Overall, APAC firms cite operational efficiencies and flexible architectures as drivers. Australian and Southeast Asian decision makers cite sustainability as the top driver.
  •      The use of edge compute will grow significantly by 2025, led by Chinese firms, whose numbers are expected to more than double.

In this report, APAC responses to the most recent Frost & Sullivan global cloud user survey are analyzed. Responses for the region as a whole are presented, and, where significant, individual country-level responses are presented as well.
