Oil and Gas Companies are Getting Value from Public Cloud, but are they Saving Money?
This IDC Survey Spotlight analyzes results from IDC's CloudView Survey, particularly on the oil and gas (O&G) industry. T This document sheds light on O&G companies' sentiments about the utilization of software-as-a-service (SaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) models of public cloud. It also discusses the cost component of cloud adoption and how the whole scenario is being evaluated by O&G cloud users in terms of costs and benefits.
"Although an upfront investment concerns about public cloud still prevail among some O&G companies, the benefits weigh a lot more than costs and cloud-first strategy will soon be the industry norm," said Gaurav Verma, research manager, IDC Energy Insights.
