Ethernet services are replacing private line services for WAN connectivity, particularly for high-bandwidth, high-availability VPN; storage networking; and datacenter interconnectivity applications," says Courtney Munroe, group VP, Enterprise Communications Services.</P> IDC Survey Fri, 22 Sep 2017 04:00:00 GMT Amy Lind, Courtney Munroe Japan Big Data Software Market Shares, 2016: High Growth Continues http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=JPE41741317 <P>This IDC study is a translation of the Japanese document IDC #<B><A href="/getdoc.jsp?containerId=JPJ41767517">JPJ41767517</A></B>. It provides the Japan Big Data software market share by vendor based on the performance in 2016. Information on the overall Big Data software market and the three market segments are provided.</P><P>"The Big Data software is expected to be used as a digital transformation (DX) platform. In addition, it is forecast to grow continually with increased adoption of Big Data software into business applications. IT suppliers are required to provide values to more users, by being aware of the two approaches they can take, namely, custom application platforms through DX and in-house and ISV's packaged applications," says Shintaro Kusachi, market analyst, Software and Security, IDC Japan.</P> Market Share Fri, 22 Sep 2017 04:00:00 GMT Shintaro Kusachi Japan IT Security Products Market Shares, 2016: External Threat Measures and Internal Threat Measures Market http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=JPE41751117 <P>This IDC study is a translation of the Japanese document IDC #<B><A href="/getdoc.jsp?containerId=JPJ41780817">JPJ41780817</A></B> that presents the Japan IT security products market vendor shares in 2016. The market is divided into external threat analysis and protection products market that includes endpoint security, messaging security, web security, and network security; and the internal threat analysis and protection products market that includes identity and access management, and security and vulnerability management. Security protection in user companies must be measures that comply with laws and industry regulations rather than just providing protection from cyberattacks. There are laws and regulations in Japan called Basic Cybersecurity Act, Amendment to the Personal Information Protection Act, and My Number Law that stems from My Number System. The Amendment to the Personal Information Protection Act was fully enforced on May 30, 2017. The European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation that is scheduled to be enforced on May 25, 2018 will impose a large amount of penalty on companies depending on the handling of the EU resident data if it is regarded as a violation of laws and regulations even if the corporate activities took place outside of the EU. Accordingly, it is growing more difficult for the IT system department alone to determine whether security measures implemented in or planned for IT systems in a hybrid environment in which on-premise environment exists together with cloud environment comply with laws and industry regulations.</P><P>"Security vendors should strive to establish communications about security measures with user companies' legal department and external legal experts. This effort will increase user companies' confidence about security solutions, which will lead to implementation," said Tsuneo Tosaka, research manager, Software and Security, IDC Japan.</P> Market Share Fri, 22 Sep 2017 04:00:00 GMT Tsuneo Tosaka Japan System Management and Network Software Forecast, 2017−2021 http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=JPE41743917 <P>This IDC study is a translation of the Japanese document IDC #<B><A href="/getdoc.jsp?containerId=JPJ41782717">JPJ41782717</A></B> that categorizes the Japan system management software market and the Japan network software market by functional segment, and provides forecasts for the market and its segments for 2017–2021 period. </P><P>"The Japan system management and network software market has experienced ongoing investment in software for visualizing and automating system operations, and forecasts that this market will continue to grow steadily going forward.
