In Germany, companies are increasingly flocking towards the public cloud. This trend has long included customer relationship management (CRM) applications, unified communications (UC), and now especially core systems such as enterprise resource planning (ERP).
ERP systems were not considered by the majority of users for public cloud hosting until recently. This is reported in the new "ISG Provider Lens Public Cloud - Solutions & Service Partners Germany 2019" from ISG.
Another reason for increasing cloud spending, according to the ISG study, is the rapidly growing amount of data from customers and from the Internet of Things. The analytics tools available in the cloud help companies capture and interpret this data.
"The performance of public cloud providers and their service partners has now reached a remarkable level"
says Heiko Henkes, Director and Principal Analyst at ISG.
"This applies to the tools offered as well as platforms, services and value propositions, or SLAs."
