This IDC study provides insight on how 18 workloads are deployed and consumed and what the projections are for future deployments. IDC's Worldwide Semiannual Enterprise Storage Systems Tracker Workloads and Worldwide Semiannual Server Tracker Workloads taxonomies leverage IDC's Quarterly Server, Enterprise Storage Systems, and Cloud IT Infrastructure Trackers for the core infrastructure sizing and forecasting attributes underpinning the workloads model across four main deployment scenarios. Workload trends are presented by geography-specific deployment, location, and product category across all attributes and a five-year forecast."Digital transformation is also forcing a level of agility not seen before in IT organizations," said Matthew Eastwood, senior vice president of Enterprise Infrastructure Research at IDC and the chief architect of IDC's Workloads study. "Companies are embracing public cloud services to complement their private cloud or noncloud environments at an unprecedented scale. To better represent how enterprises consider the deployment of new and existing workloads, IDC's server and storage market model segments them into four deployment scenarios (on-premises traditional, on-premises cloud, off-premises traditional, and off-premises cloud). Customers have more choices for technologies, service providers, vendors, channel partners, financing, configurations, deployment models, procurement scenarios, and routes to market than ever before. In this business environment, customers of all types, sizes, and verticals are increasingly looking to define themselves digitally, and as they do this, they are becoming savvier at addressing their workload requirements."
