IDC research shows that cloud computing is gaining momentum across the Benelux region, with more companies investing in cloud services and cloud technology to secure a competitive edge. This was clear and present at IDC's multicloud conferences in November 2018, and we are looking forward to building on the success in 2019 with conferences across the Benelux region.

The right cloud service for every application scenario and every stakeholder, no vendor lock-in, high reliability with the best possible performance — more and more companies are recognizing the attractiveness of a multicloud strategy in the context of digital transformation. However, companies often underestimate the high administrative overhead and quickly reach their limits when it comes to issues such as privacy and service level agreements.

Digital innovators such as ING Bank or Siemens want to consume cloud content from multiple cloud locations while remaining as flexible as possible. On one hand, this gives users tremendous freedom, but at the same time presents the CIOs with great challenges.

For IT organizations to add value to innovative businesses, the only way is to formulate a multicloud strategy based on hiring people with the necessary negotiating skills, investing in automation software, and revising transnational connectivity options.

IDC's Multicloud Conferences 2019 will review industry trends and provide you with an opportunity to look at the ways companies can "clean up" cluttered cloud landscapes and use methods from DevOps and continuous integration to speed up innovation and business transformation.
