IDC's Worldwide Software Taxonomy, 2018: Update

By: Rasmus AndsbjergProgram Director, WW Software and Public Cloud Services Trackers, Dan VessetGroup Vice President, Analytics and Information Management


This IDC study provides a detailed description of IDC's software market taxonomy. For 2018, the taxonomy includes 83 individual functional markets grouped within a hierarchy of 19 secondary markets, which in turn aggregate into three primary segments: applications, application development and deployment, and systems infrastructure software. Each of the functional markets is described, with a sample list of representative software vendors in that market.

"IDC's software market taxonomy represents a comprehensive view of the worldwide software marketplace," said Dan Vesset, group VP, Analytics and Information Management. "It continues to be the premier source for defining and categorizing commercial software and the basis for IDC market sizing and forecast data products such as trackers and spending guides."
