Worldwide Whole Cloud Forecast, 2019-2023
Published: June 5, 2019 Content info: 17 Pages

This IDC study identifies the variety of cloud-related (i.e., "whole cloud") opportunities available for the 2018-2023 period, including and beyond the public cloud services market."Spending on - and around - adoption of cloud services has become the biggest engine of growth for the entire IT market and is poised to become even more important over the next five years," according to IDC Chief Analyst Frank Gens. "But the cloud of the next five years will be markedly different from that of the past decade, with the focus shifting to the 'distributed cloud' - as the public cloud leaders' innovative services become deployed in enterprise datacenters; in distributed locations like retail stores, branch offices, factories and hospitals; and at an expanding variety of edge locations."
