“Hyperscale public cloud platforms are the main enabler for hyper-agile app development and deployment. IDC’s research, however, shows that 67% of European organizations are building a hybrid cloud technology architecture for the future, where on-prem has a strong presence in the space of mission-critical applications.”
“The edge computing ecosystem that emerged in 2019 – and which involved IT infrastructure vendors, telecoms network operators, and cloud service providers – will show growing maturity and expansion in 2020, thanks to increased innovation and new and evolving partnerships.”

As companies move beyond initial forays into the cloud, many are experiencing the advantages — and the challenges — of a multicloud environment. In fact, 85 percent of companies globally are already operating in a multicloud environment. By 2021, 96 percent plan to be using multiple clouds.
“Next-generation workloads can require specialized hardware capabilities, but enterprises embracing the cloud often overlook such considerations completely. For some, that can mean reduced performance and value.”
More than 90 percent of enterprises around the world have adopted cloud services in some shape or form. Additionally, 46 percent of them run a multi-cloud environment and 59 percent have adopted more advanced concepts like containers and microservices in their production set-up.

Worldwide spending on public cloud services and infrastructure will more than double over the 2019-2023 forecast period, according to the latest market study by International Data Corporation (IDC).
According to International Data Corporation (IDC), vendor revenue from sales of IT infrastructure products for cloud environments — including public and private cloud — grew 11.4 percent year-over-year in the first quarter of 2019 (1Q19), reaching $14.5 billion.
Now that containerized architectures can increase application agility and speed, there’s been a push to package more applications in containers, and use Kubernetes to manage both compute and storage.
