IDC's SaaS and Cloud Software research examines the opportunity, buyer demand criteria, and business success characteristics for the deployment of SaaS and provides IDC's Worldwide forecast and market share documents for all SaaS, PaaS, and system infrastructure software revenue. This service also covers hybrid cloud and multicloud strategies by vertical, investigates the cloud through a software and services lens, analyzes market disruption, covers application marketplaces, and identifies operational strategies for building, selling, and purchasing service-enabled software, including optimal go-to-market and management strategies. IDC also offers two separate companion services meant to be utilized alongside this CIS, called IDC's SaaSPath, and IDC's Industry CloudPath program.
Industry CloudPath provides deep insight into how each industry (22 industries) is moving to the cloud, including current and future planned cloud adoption; application migration strategy and timing; drivers and inhibitors; budgets; purchasing preferences toward pricing, packaging, and buying channels; cloud maturity levels; extensive vendor ratings and advocacy scores; and adoption and buying intentions for 200+ industry-specific applications/workloads.
SaaSPath provides global data on the mind and journey of SaaS buyers, including deep vendor ratings and comparisons in 15 app categories (ERP, SCM, HCM, tax, A/R, A/P, salesforce automation, procurement, T&E, finance, T&R, PSA, EAM, digital commerce, and subscription billing).
