TECH SUPPLIER Jul 2019 - IDC Survey Spotlight - Doc # US45336516
Top Applications for Application Management Services (AMS) on the Cloud
This IDC Survey Spotlight illustrates which types of applications organizations would most want to have third-party providers manage on the cloud. The document contains data from IDC's Application Services Survey, which was completed in December 2018. IDC's Worldwide Application Lifecycle and Cloud Services practice conducted this survey to understand enterprise interests for having their applications managed by third parties on the cloud. The overall goal of the survey was to identify how organizations' preferences around AM on the cloud are evolving for front- and back-office applications and how application service providers can align their AM offerings to address varied customer needs.
"Application services providers should understand how organizations are approaching their application life-cycle management and underlying strategies so that they are well positioned to support evolving customer needs and maintain deeper customer relationships in an increasingly competitive environment," explained Pete Marston, Worldwide Application Lifecycle and Cloud Services.
