Western Europe Datacenter Life-Cycle Services Forecast 2018–2021 Update: The Pivot to Hybrid Cloud

This IDC Market Forecast studies the Western European datacenter life-cycle services market by service-line segments and by Western European subregions. The analysis presents key trends and drivers (as well as inhibitors) shaping the market. It also details major events that are likely to shape the market over the forecast period. Furthermore, it contains market size and projected data for the Western European datacenter life-cycle services market for 2017 to 2021. It draws the analysis on both qualitative and quantitative data. "The datacenter life-cycle services market is expected to see patchy growth across service lines and geographies due largely to the effect of new digital technologies and services — including cloud services, which require lower volumes and levels of managed services — which still constitutes a challenge for datacenter services players. While professional services (planning and implementing changes to client's datacenter estates) and hosting will maintain a good momentum, the prospects for IT outsourcing (i.e., datacenter-related managed services) will remain gloomy. As enterprises shift infrastructure and application spend to hybrid cloud, service providers need to catch the 'digital wave' by strengthening their business and technology consulting skills while simultaneously broadening their managed cloud services capabilities, with new automation and cognitive technologies and services at the heart of their strategies," said Francesca Ciarletta, research lead for infrastructure management and cloud managed services, IDC Western Europe.
