This IDC study presents the results of IDC's cloud services online survey conducted in November 2016 among private and public organizations in Austria to get an update on the status quo, and to identify drivers and inhibitors, as well as preferred vendors of cloud solutions, from an end-user perspective. The survey covers these major topics:

  • Adoption of private and public cloud
  • Status quo of different cloud services (SaaS, IaaS, PaaS)
  • Cloud strategies and policies
  • What IT organizations need to improve to become cloud ready
  • Staff know-how with regard to cloud
  • Important aspects when discussing cloud adoption
  • Cloud challenges
  • Level of trust in cloud
  • Preferred and most recognized cloud solution providers
  • Compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

"Cloud is being approached strategically by the majority of Austrian organizations. Internal know-how still needs to be increased with regard to cloud standards and the use of tools for cloud management, automation, self-service, and orchestration." — Research Analyst Julia Neuschmid, IDC Austria
