12 Jun 2012
FRAMINGHAM, Mass., June
14, 2011 – International Data Corporation (IDC) today released
the latest results from its Worldwide
Semiannual System Management Software Tracker. The Tracker monitors more
than 130 vendors globally in a total of 49 countries, providing biannual market
size, vendor share, and forecast data for the six functional markets that
comprise the system management software market in IDC's software taxonomy.
"The system management software market achieved
double-digit growth in 2011 although growth in the second half of the year slowed
by 3 percentage points compared to the first half," said Patrick Melgarejo,
director, Worldwide Software Trackers. "The Workload Scheduling and
Automation (WSA), Performance Management, and Change and Configuration
Management (CCM) markets maintained the best growth among the functional
markets while the Output Management market performed flat and was negative in
the second half of the year."
Continuing with their strong performance, the WSA and CCM markets
are forecast to show the highest growth rates through 2016 and help the overall
system management software market to achieve a solid compound annual growth
rate (CAGR) of 5.7% for the forecast period. In contrast, the Event Management
and Output Management markets are forecast to underperform the over market, achieving
CAGRs of 2.9% and 1.3% respectively.

The top performing regions in terms of growth rates in 2011 were
Central Europe, Middle East and Africa (CEMA), Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan),
and Japan. For now, Japan is the only one out of these 3 regions that surpasses
$1 billion in annual revenue. Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) is forecast to
reach the $1 billion threshold in 2015.
"Although slowing in the second half of the year, the 2011
results show continued healthy growth in worldwide system management software
revenue," said Tim Grieser,
program vice president, Enterprise System
Management Software. "Growth was fueled by increases in IT
spending due to continuing economic recovery and new investments in managing
virtualized and cloud infrastructures. Automation to simplify and optimize IT
operations and reduce costs continued as a key factor."
Only five vendors (IBM, BMC, HP, CA Technologies, and
Microsoft) achieved worldwide revenues of more than $1 billion. The difference
between the leader and the last position in this short list fell from 7.7
percentage points in 2008 to 4.2 percentage points in 2011, meaning that the
competitive scenario is likely to become more heated over the next few years.
Microsoft, the number 5 vendor, had growth above the overall market in 2011 and
is particularly strong in one of the top growing functional markets (CCM) and
is expected to close the gap with the top 4 very quickly. On the other hand,
IBM, BMC, and CA Technologies are very strong in another top growing market
(WSA). Besides the top 5 list, the following vendors also exhibited above
average performance in 2011: Hitachi, NEC, VMware, Quest Software, Citrix, ASG,
Dell, Cisco, ServiceNow, and Kaseya, among others.
