Is your agency in the midst of a digital transformation journey? Are you assessing the value your agency is able to extract from data? Is there a new executive mandate to embrace data-driven decision making? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, your agency is among the majority of those in the midst of looking for agile, reliable, and flexible infrastructure to support your digital transformation initiatives in a cost-efficient manner. Organizations are looking for a structured methodology to help decide the right deployment model and location that helps accelerate their pace of innovation, improve customer experience, and gain competitive edge.
IDC recommends using a holistic approach to determine deployment location for applications to meet enterprise SLAs.
In this white paper, IDC describes the business and technical considerations and provides a framework for choosing the appropriate cloud (on-premises private cloud or off-premises public cloud) solution for deployment of customer workloads. It draws upon IDC research, customer interviews, and analysis of vendor offerings.
