Tracker image

IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Enterprise Infrastructure Tracker: Buyer and Cloud Deployment® is designed to provide clients with a better understanding how enterprise infrastructure technologies (server, external enterprise storage systems, purpose-built appliances: HCI and PBBA) are being deployed in cloud environments and what type of buyers are acquiring them. This tracker will segment each enterprise infrastructure technology market into infrastructure platform, infrastructure sharing, location, and infrastructure buyer for historical data and provide a five-year forecast by technology market. This tracker product addresses key questions on the size of the enterprise infrastructure market spend within the cloud and non-cloud space by buyer type and helps vendors navigate and perform competitive analysis.
