The Cloud Readiness Index (CRI) 2018 is the fifth iteration of the Asia Cloud Computing Association (ACCA)’s flagship report. It measures 14 economies across Asia Pacific (APAC) on 10 parameters to indicate how prepared they are in adopting cloud computing.
Results and analyses for the Cloud Readiness Index 2018 are presented via an interactive microsite, accessible here.
CRI 2018 shows that Singapore tops the APAC region, closely followed by Hong Kong and New Zealand.
CRI 2018 also reveals that on average, cloud infrastructure and regulation are the region’s strong points, while cloud governance and security weigh it down.
A new section is included this year to explore the different ways the CRI can move beyond readiness to measure the potential impact cloud technologies have on societies, including metrics on cloud adoption, application, and usage. This new dimension is aimed at helping government policymakers and policy support organisations such as the ACCA provide accurate insights and timely perspectives on technology trends.
