Tencent was named a Contender in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Public Cloud Infrastructure as a Service 2020 Vendor Assessment (doc # US46795720, September 2020). This IDC MarketScape study assesses global public cloud infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) vendors based on the IDC MarketScape model.
The IDC MarketScape vendor assessment model is designed to provide an overview of the competitiveness of information and communications technology (ICT) suppliers in a given market. The research methodology utilizes a rigorous scoring methodology based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria that results in a single graphical illustration of each vendor’s position within a given market. IDC MarketScape provides a clear framework in which the product and service offerings, capabilities and strategies, and current and future market success factors of IT and telecommunications vendors can be meaningfully compared. The framework also provides technology buyers with a 360-degree assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of current and prospective vendors.
