Western Europe Analytic Information Management Platform Market Shares, 2014: Winds of Change
2014 clearly showed how leading analytic information management platform players in Europe are coming under pressure from two directions, said Philip Carnelley, research director, IDC Europe. "First, there is demand from users coping with rapidly increasing data volumes as well as evolving business pressures, and they need a variety of approaches to fit their needs. Second, the new approaches and technologies of cloud- and open-source-derived software vendors are competing hard for market share. But at the moment, market leaders are maintaining their positions in the standings, and they are seeking to preserve their position by embracing new, complementary technologies."
