Japan Server Forecast by Systems Type, 2018–2022
This IDC study provides a forecast on the Japan server market spending by system type. Specifically, the five system types are systems of record (SoR), systems of engagement (SoE), systems of insight (SoI), system infrastructure platform (SIP), and apparatus/device control systems (A/DCS). In this study, the five segments are regrouped into SoR, SoE/SoI (which is the sum of SoE and SoI), and "other" (which is the sum of SIP and A/DCS). The market size is then estimated and analyzed based on the three new categories."Server vendors are required to understand the characteristics and focus of the respective growth segments, identify the areas they can cover in their ecosystems and those they are involved in, and translate these into product strategies, partner strategies, and sales strategies," explains Satoshi Fukutomi, group manager, Enterprise Infrastructure, IDC Japan.
