This IDC study provides IDC's top 10 predictions for the system infrastructure software market for 2013. It discusses how the convergence of virtualization, cloud, automation, analytics, and the consumerization of IT are setting the stage for major industry shifts and challenges to the conventional wisdom.
"2013 will be a year when many infrastructure software markets will start to define a new normal as cloud and converged system strategies stabilize," said Al Gillen, program vice president, System Software, at IDC. "Major vendors will settle into a ground game to promote major new releases, open source will demonstrate whether it is ready for prime time, and mobility will proliferate. Advanced automation, analytics, and social networking technologies will provide competitive differentiation and help IT teams become more agile and efficient."
