The Japan cloud services market will continue its strong growth. However, the competition among vendors will intensify, and they are likely to be weeded out soon. "It is worthwhile for vendors to have businesses in every segment, from infrastructure to applications. Right now, even having one segment with overwhelming competitive edge is very important in staying alive in this market," says Satoshi Matsumoto, research manager, IT Services, IDC Japan.
