This study both calculates the size of the Japan cloud infrastructure software market (broken down into software for public clouds and private clouds) from 2012 to 2014 and provides forecasts of that market from 2015 to 2019. It also analyzes vendor shares and vendor trends.
The analysis of IDC Japan's Software and Security Research Manager Mitsuhiro Iriya is this: "The question of how higher added-value cloud infrastructure software can be provided for hybridizing cloud environments will become crucial going forward. In order to take the lead in the charge toward the age of hybrid clouds, vendors should use open technologies and large ecosystems such as those of OpenStack to introduce into the market hybrid cloud solutions that link multiple clouds quickly."
This IDC study is a translation of the Japan document IDC #J15380108 and is summarized to reduce the gap in time since the original version was published.
