In light of the immense challenges that characterized 2020, cloud adoption is no longer merely an option; indeed, it is a necessity that promises tremendous rewards across entire organizations. As the region's enterprises dramatically accelerate their digital transformation journeys, they need to embrace the power of cloud computing and its holy grail – frictionless, hybrid multicloud that provides infrastructure-agnostic views and unified management capabilities across all clouds and even legacy datacenters.
Highlighted as the key technology in IDC's five stages of enterprise recovery, cloud has emerged as the fastest path and natural choice to enable a resilient digital infrastructure. CIOs across the region are aggressively investing in increasing their cloud leverage, and the effectiveness of their cloud strategies will be a critical factor shaping their competitiveness and growth post recovery.
