Transforming Industries with Industry Clouds

Harnessing the cloud to deliver vertical innovation

An IDC InfoBrief 

Although 78% of executives have already adopted cloud in most or all parts of their business, over half of companies haven’t realized their desired outcomes. Industry clouds can help you achieve business goals and power the next evolution of digital transformation, so you can deliver personalized customer experiences and maintain a competitive advantage.

In their recent survey on current and forthcoming industry cloud developments, and previous research on industry clouds, IDC uncovered valuable insights for organizations looking to get better ROI on their cloud technology investments, including:

  • What motivates industry cloud adopters
  • Which industries have the highest adoption rates (hint: highly regulated industries, including Financial Services, Healthcare and Utilities)
  • The challenges –– and benefits –– of leveraging industry clouds
  • Why working with professional industry cloud vendors can boost your chances for success

Nearly half of IDC’s global survey respondents said they use an industry cloud today, and another 44% plan to adopt one soon. During these times of economic volatility, industry clouds can be a stabilizing force that helps you sustain business growth while finding efficiencies and increasing productivity. But it’s best to embark on this journey with a trusted collaborator with deep industry knowledge and technical specialists at hand to help support you with industry-leading practices, tech-enabled services and pre-built digital assets to allow you to start from where you are today and get where you need to be tomorrow.
