Most cloud infrastructure vendors offer companies a stable and secure environment on which to build and run their applications without having to manage a data center, invest in hardware, or install and update software. While most cloud vendors provide the same types of services, they differ in how they charge for and deliver those services.

A multi-cloud world is quickly becoming the new normal for many enterprises. But embarking on a cloud journey and managing cloud-based services across multiple providers can seem overwhelming.
Even the term multi-cloud can be confusing. Multi-cloud is not the same as hybrid cloud. The technical definition of hybrid cloud is an environment that includes traditional data centers with physical servers, private cloud with virtualized servers as well as public cloud provisioned by service providers. Quite often, multi-cloud simply means that an organization uses multiple public clouds from many vendors to deliver its IT services. In other words, organizations can have a multi-cloud without having a hybrid cloud, or they can have a multi-cloud as part of a hybrid cloud.
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.

Since the term “omni-channel” was first coined by the Harvard Business Review in 2011, some marketing technology vendors claimed that they could provide businesses with this holy grail of brand ubiquity. Unfortunately, most of these early claims were false starts where vendors over-promised and under-delivered.
The good news is that a select number of solutions have caught up with all the promises and can now turn them into action. In this guide, we explain why the conversation around omni-channel marketing has changed and how you can transform your marketing strategy to leverage this new, powerful technology.
We’ll give you a heads up on the roadblocks you’ll encounter on your journey to achieving omni-channel relevance and the benefits you’ll gain once you reach your destination. No highfalutin jargon, no talking in circles and no nonsense. Just practical advice on how to create a superb customer experience.
The security information and event management (SIEM) market is defined by the customer's need to analyze event data in real time for the early detection of targeted attacks and data breaches, and to collect, store, analyze, investigate and report on event data for incident response, forensics and regulatory compliance. The vendors included in our Magic Quadrant analysis have products designed for this purpose, and they actively market and sell these technologies to the security buying center.
This IDC MarketScape includes vendors that create and sell software in the client virtualization space, with a focus on centralized virtual desktops, distributed virtual desktops, and virtual user session (VUS) software. Vendors that only offer user state virtualization and/or software products that support virtual client computing deployments but not one of the aforementioned products will not be included in the IDC MarketScape graphic or profiles. This is because these types of solutions address a specific or niche need in the market but do not, by themselves, provide a complete software solution that an end customer can purchase on a standalone basis or in addition to a Microsoft Server version.

Application performance management (APM) is an IT discipline that continues to evolve as new technologies appear. The new wave of microservices architecture and containerization has led to what is referred to as cloud-native development, and this approach has one of the fastest adoption rates of any new technology we have witnessed. With cloud-native environments there is the need to monitor and manage these new types of applications, but the challenge is that they are quite different from traditional monolithic systems.
This report delves into what the differences are, how these affect how they are monitored, and how a new generation of vendors have stepped up and introduced novel solutions to meet these challenges. We also examine the incumbent leaders in the APM market that have transformed their solutions to expand and cover cloud-native environments.
