Commenting on the report, an analyst from the reports team said: “An increasing number of global organizations take advantage of some form of cloud computing. The majority of these organizations use both private and public cloud storage infrastructures, commonly known as a hybrid cloud. Organizations are increasingly moving/backing up their critical and sensitive applications on the cloud. Moreover, many organizations are developing mobile and analytics solutions directly in the cloud. The hybrid cloud provides the advantages of both public and private cloud and, hence, delivers infrastructure solutions that minimize downtime, ensure enterprise information security, and reduce operating costs.”
According to the report, the growth of the Global System Infrastructure Software market is driven by several factors, a major one being the increased use of personal mobile devices in a business environment. Employees these days bring their mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets to the workplace and connect to the corporate network. These devices also facilitate remote access to data, enabling employees to remain productive even when they are not at their workstations. The rise in the number of devices that connect with corporate networks increases the need for IT security and storage, driving market growth.
Further, the report states that one such challenge is the increase in operational costs. IT infrastructure usually comprises components purchased from multiple vendors. The specifications of these components differ, and skilled professionals are needed to integrate the components and monitor the systems. This increases the cost for enterprises, making them reluctant to adopt infrastructure solutions.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
