Western Europe Vertical Markets External Disk Systems Spending 2013–2018 Forecast

This IDC study provides an overview of external disk systems spending trends and forecasts for 11 industry sectors in Western Europe for 2013–2018. Vertical markets covered include discrete manufacturing, process manufacturing, retail/wholesale, financial services, business services, transport, communications, utilities, government/education, healthcare, and other.

"The recent downturns have permanently changed end users' approach to IT budgets, and vendors should expect additional scrutiny on spending decisions across all vertical markets, even when the economy returns to growth. In parallel, technology advancements continue to boost storage needs, but at the same time create alternative solutions to meet these same needs, in competition with traditional storage hardware. In such a competitive and demanding environment, vendors of external disk systems need to look more closely at end-user needs and understand to what purpose their solutions are going to be deployed," said Serena Da Rold, program manager, IDC European Vertical Markets. "IDC's vertical markets research provides continuous monitoring of established and emerging trends within each industry sector across the whole traditional IT perimeter as well as the 3rd Platform."
