The last decade's most hyperbolic technology, cloud computing has emerged as a versatile and multi-purpose alternative to on-premise storage for enterprises. It has revolutionized how businesses store and access information on an external platform, enabling them to run a software without installing it.
A study by IDC, which surveyed IT decision makers across 20 industries, found that cloud computing is rapidly becoming the norm among enterprises with improvements on business agility as the biggest factor to adoption. Japanese organizations have started to leverage the technology by intensifying spending on public cloud services and infrastructure. The same study revealed Japanese firms put US$7.4 billion on public cloud services in 2019 and is expected to grow from 3.0% in 2019 to 4.4% in 2022.

The presence of cloud computing providers like Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and AliCloud are also casting an influence on the rate of cloud adoption among Japanese businesses.

AliCloud leads the pack and accounts for 43% of the local cloud market in Japan. Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud take the rest of the market at 31.7%, 16.8%, and 8.5% respectively. 

The flurry of activities by these industry bigwigs, along with recent technological trends, has contributed to this rise of cloud adoption among organizations worldwide.
