CloudShare: Worldwide Emerging Cloud ISV Repository

CloudShare: Worldwide Emerging Cloud ISV Repository is IDC's extensive cloud vendor database, including key facts about 3,500 worldwide cloud vendors, providing "long tail" guidance on the software-as-a-service (SaaS)/platform-as-a-service (PaaS) market. CloudShare goes beyond the lists of vendors found in IDC market share documents or IDC's Trackers. CloudShare is a comprehensive targeting/prospecting list for companies that offer SaaS enablement services and for IT vendors looking for M&A, partnering opportunities, or a better understanding of key providers. Infrastructure and platform companies use CloudShare to identify and attract ISVs to move, run, and expand on their platform. Hosting companies can find ISVs in need of colocation services. Systems integrators and professional services firms can discover ISVs in need of implementation, migration, and integration services. Also, components suppliers can use CloudShare to identify ISVs in need of technologies such as storage, OS, app server, and orchestration. CloudShare tracks over 95% of the cloud software market (by revenue), providing information on each ISV, including total corporate revenue, software revenue, SaaS and PaaS revenue, software market focus and key industries served, firmographics, percentage of revenue from as-a-service versus traditional licensing, and velocity of change from license to subscription model.
