U.S. Software Vendor Preferences of Public Cloud Providers for Managed SaaS/PaaS
This IDC Survey Spotlight highlights results from the following question posed to 400 respondents from U.S. enterprises with 500+ employees as part of IDC's 2018 U.S. Managed SaaS/PaaS Services Survey on software vendor needs and requirements in using managed services to support provisioning of software products and technologies in a SaaS/PaaS model, also referred to as managed SaaS/PaaS services: "Please indicate which two of the following public cloud providers you would prefer that third-party managed service providers (SPs) utilize in provisioning your software products in a SaaS and/or PaaS model." This Survey Spotlight then assesses the differing business model options that managed SPs can pursue in utilizing public clouds as part of provisioning managed SaaS/PaaS services.
