IT Market Research

The aim of the study is to present a detailed outlook of the global software-defined data center (SDDC) market

Reasons for the study

  • • We have been tracking the internet penetration in developed and developing economies and have been monitoring various data breach incidents at the global and regional level. As an extension of this market, we have found out that the SDDC industry is gaining high importance as a solution to address cyber and data threats.
  • • During the course of our research we noticed the rising pattern towards adoption of SDDC for minimizing the infrastructure costs and boost the staff productivity especially in the IT sector
  • • We further noticed that the usage of SDDC as an automated platform for enhancing server efficiency, data security, and faster delivery of services has gained immense importance and its requirement is rising at noteworthy growth in countries that have a booming IT industry.


Key industry insights

  • • The global SDDC market size was estimated to be USD xx million in 2017 and is expected to grow at a robust CAGR of more than 25.0% over the forecast period. Over the past few years, the global software-defined data center (SDDC) industry has risen tremendously exceeding approximately USD 25.0 billion in 2017.
  • • Factors such as exponential growth in Internet usage, growing big data, and high cost-effectiveness of the system drive the usage of software-defined data center across various industries, including retail, telecom & IT, BFSI, and healthcare

Boom in big data drives the growt…nter SDDC market

  • • Growth in the number of online shoppers generates a large pool of data, which is crucial for further target marketing. This factor has propelled the requirements of data centers for storage and processing
