IDC Cloud Leadership Forum in Europe


The cloud adoption in CEE is approaching a turning point. Innovative companies and CIOs are embracing the cloud in an increasing number, challenging the “wait and see” approach of their competitors.

After several years of investments in the development of the cloud by service providers, the cloud has moved beyond the hype in CEE and has become a viable option for enhancing business agility, efficiency and driving innovation in enterprise IT. Perception around the advantages and risks of the cloud are also shifting. The business value is rapidly gaining credit through the best practices provided by the increasing number of CEE implementations while traditional concerns around security and control are becoming less prevalent.

No surprise, that the outlook of the cloud market remains outstandingly positive, representing the most dynamic segment of ICT market in CEE with an average growth rate of more than 50% for the next years. However, the growth will vary among cloud service types, depending on the resonation of the service with the specifics of the CEE market. IDC expects the most dynamic uptake in virtual private cloud, as it best addresses the need of customers for control and security, while delivering the advantage of the lower costs of the public cloud infrastructure.
