This June, IDC – International Data Corporation, a global provider of market intelligence for the IT, telecommunications and consumer technology markets, released its latest research on the Impact of COVID-19 on the ICT industry in Latin America. The outstanding result was for the adoption of public cloud.
The results that we are going to bring in this content are part of the most recent edition of the survey, carried out in May 2020. It is important to highlight that the transition process to the new reality in the technology market was foreseen, in the previous survey carried out in the month April, to last 2 to 3 months, with an optimistic scenario of recovery for the 3rd quarter of the year.

But after all, what are the benefits that the use of the public cloud can bring to the operation that make it the main solution at this moment for companies?
In practice, there are a number of advantages that businesses can take advantage of by adopting a public cloud. Among the main ones are:
