Social, Mobile, Analytics, Cloud (SMAC) and Security are riding on a wave of publicity and expectation, however much of this is being driven by consultants and industry commentators according to the SMAC and Security Software Research Digest. The reality of many of these software markets is more mixed. Some markets are growing very rapidly, in particular newer markets such as social management software markets and mobile applications have seen stellar growth in many cases of above 100%+ per annum. However for other markets the recent past has been a story of adjustment and development rather than boom. The security market in particular managed only relatively slow growth in 2013, despite the increased need for security as systems move to the cloud. In the Business Intelligence (BI) market, many companies are still trying to consolidate and structure their data before investing heavily in analytics. Also while much business is moving to a cloud or SaaS model, it should be remembered that this is partially as a means of making savings, and thus in some cases is actually resulting in reduced revenues.
