IDC PeerScape: Lessons Learned from Using Cloud Professional Services in Canada
Published: March 17, 2021 Content info: 6 Pages
Description

This IDC PeerScape offers advice for IT executives, sourcing executives, and other business executives to employ when procuring external professional services related to private and hybrid cloud computing environments and public cloud services, specifically infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS). Cloud adoption in Canada has become mainstream, with half of Canadian organizations with more than 100 employees having now adopted PaaS, and one-third of them having adopted IaaS. However, cloud maturity has not grown accordingly with 52% of organizations stagnating in the lower levels of cloud maturity. IDC conducted 14 interviews with IT executives in Canadian organizations regarding their use of cloud professional services to learn lessons from their experiences accelerating cloud maturity."Canadian organizations are increasing their use of cloud services and technologies as they speed their digital transformations to prepare to compete in the post-pandemic digital economy. Most of them are using cloud professional services firms to accelerate their cloud maturity. Companies that are unaccustomed to using external consultants, or those that have found their cloud maturity is stagnating, can learn lessons from their peers on how to leverage cloud professional services firms more effectively for their cloud journeys," says Jason Bremner, research vice president, Industry and Business Solutions, IDC Canada.
