European Data Replication and Protection Software and Services Market Shares, 1H18: Cloud Services Get an Edge
This IDC Market Share examines the European data protection and replication software and cloud services market in 1H18. The software market revenue growth slowed to drop 2.6%, largely because of the shift of the data protection market to the cloud and significant slowdown in some of the top market share vendors such as IBM and Veritas. Moving forward, we expect small and emerging vendors to enjoy continued success in 2019 as these smaller vendors pursue "best in class" market niches. We also expect continued growth in the DPaaS area as enterprises start protecting their expanding cloud workloads and software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions."The data replication and protection software market shrank considerably in 1H18, falling 2.6%, but the cloud segment posted torrid growth to support European customers' cloud journey," said Archana Venkatraman, research manager, IDC's European Data Infrastructure Technologies and Strategies. "Nevertheless, it remains a large and important market. Customers' willingness to buy best-of-breed solutions for specific environments rather than 'good enough' across many environments are giving opportunities to smaller, innovative, and emerging vendors that specialize on market niches."Data presented in this study represents IDC's best estimates of vendor-specific revenue and market shares based on our semi-annual European software tracker data and research as of January 2019.
