LONDON, Jan. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:

U.S. and EMEA Network Priorities, Strategies, and Spending

This IDC study presents a comparison of results from IDC's recent U.S. and EMEA network/communications services surveys.

"A comparison of the U.S. and EMEA surveys revealed a clear regional divergence with regard to WAN technology usage, reflecting a greater preference for self-managed networks in the U.S. and carrier-managed networks in Europe," says Melanie Posey, research vice president for IDC's Hosting and Managed Network Services. "In addition, EMEA companies find the idea of moving from in-house IT to hosted or cloud services considerably less attractive than those in the United States."
