PaaS Customer Preferences for Cloud Use
This IDC Survey captures customer purchasing preferences associated with cloud platform-as-a-services (PaaS) resources and solutions and related technologies. It includes survey data from 205 United States–based IT professionals and line-of-business managers that have software purchasing influence or decision-making responsibility. The survey covers topics including the use of single or multiple public clouds, the types of services factors that customers consume, customers' perspectives on features, and influential factors that affect selection decisions.
"This survey found an 86% rate of multicloud customers among those that are already deploying to public cloud PaaS environments," said Al Gillen, group VP, Software Development and Open Source, IDC. "Of particular interest in this study is the finding that customers are finding tangible return on investment associated with PaaS use, particularly for new applications developed specifically for deployment into a PaaS environment."
