Japan Datacenter Facility Consulting and Design Market 2015–2018 Forecast and 2014 Review
This IDC study presents an analysis and forecasts of the Japan datacenter facility consulting and facility design market. Datacenter (DC) facility consulting refers to services that cover the overall specification planning of DC facilities, support for the development of DC spending strategies, improvement of energy efficiency through optimization of cooling systems and facility management, and facility performance assessment. Consulting providers include systems integration (SI) vendors, IT vendors, and building/facility vendors. The Japan DC facility consulting market is still small in size but with the rising electricity and construction costs, IDC believes that the market will expand in the future.
Strategies to use cloud and DC services are important in the development of DC strategies in enterprises. "It is important that DC facility consulting vendors have the ability to provide advisory services regarding facilities as well as consultation on cloud service strategies. These vendors should collaborate with one another and strengthen their partnership," comments Mimei Ito, research manager, IT Services, IDC Japan.
