This IDC Perspective discusses IDC's take on the impact of Meltdown and Spectre on the enterprise server market.

According to Laura DuBois, GVP for IDC Infrastructure Systems, "The scale of these latest vulnerabilities, the way it was reported, and the ensuing struggle to fix it points to a bigger industrywide issue. It also points to the perils of overstandardization where the vulnerability in a foundational component can cripple the entire stack. IDC expects this to accelerate the shift to new computing models where apps are abstracted away from the hardware layer, making them easily portable to alternative platforms in such times of crises."
