Worldwide Quarterly Converged Systems Tracker

Available Product Resources Factsheet

IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Converged Systems Tracker® greatly enhances clients' ability to size critical components of the integrated systems market as a foundation for creating quantitative market analyses and studying historical trends. At a broad level, integrated systems represent a competitive market based on elements from several of IDC's existing trackers. This tracker focuses on systems that have been designed, certified, and branded by technology vendors. Systems designed and implemented by partners through their own initiative are not counted. Systems certified by a technology vendor after a partner-initiated design and deployment are also excluded if they are not vendor-branded integrated.
