European Software-Defined Compute Software Market Forecast, 2022–2027: Significant Growth in the Container Space as Cloud Software Delivery Gains Momentum
This IDC Market Forecast discusses the European software-defined compute (SDC) software market and illustrates how the SDC software industry will evolve in the next five years. It presents market revenue and growth for different IT segments and details how enterprises should face new technology changes in the cloud industry.
"Security, along cost control and sustainability, is on top of organizations' minds and containers represent a key part of IT security. Consequently, it is not a surprise that organizations in Europe continue to invest in these solutions to address security and to help teams simplify, accelerate, and orchestrate application development and deployment," said Archana Venkatraman, research director, CloudOps and Cloud Data Management at IDC Europe.
"The container infrastructure software market has been the growth engine for the SDC space for various reasons. However, from an application development and delivery lens, one very clear reason stands out: cloud native. Containers and container orchestration underpin cloud-native architectures and organizations that want to build modern app delivery capacity all but cannot avoid containers as their foundational block for cloud-native delivery," said George Mironescu, research lead, App Dev/Delivery at IDC Europe.
