Companies with multicloud services are outperforming their peers on a number of metrics — and achieving the key objectives that led them to the cloud services model.
Take a look at the IT ecosystem of any company today and there’s a good chance you’ll find it includes offerings from several cloud services providers. That’s certainly the case at mid- to large-sized companies with at least 500 employees, according to a recent survey conducted by IDG Research. The survey of 100 senior IT professionals found that 59% are already multi-cloud adopters — that is, using computing and storage services from two or more cloud providers. Another 31% of respondents say they plan to become multi-cloud organizations in the coming 12-24 months, with only 10% still in the “consideration” phase.
The survey results also reveal interesting insights into the drivers behind multicloud adoption. The perennial desire to reduce IT costs remains important, but the respondents rate two other factors.

Exceptional customer service is a competitive differentiator. Providing consistent service that is tailored to the individual across a variety of digital channels can help organizations deliver personalized experiences that exceed the expectations of today’s digital savvy consumers. Yet, many organizations fail to deliver real-time relevance in their service experiences because critical customer data is siloed in different systems (CRM, ticketing, etc.) across the enterprise, making it difficult to understand the full customer journey and their needs at that point in time.
We partnered with IDG Research to survey top-performing customer service organizations to determine the challenges they face, and, more importantly, their plans for driving better outcomes. One thing is clear: taking a strategic approach to future investments can help organizations meet their customer service objectives and deliver on customer expectations.
