Worldwide Enterprise Network Infrastructure Forecast, 2017–2021

Worldwide Enterprise Network Infrastructure Forecast, 2017–2021

This IDC study provides a forecast for the worldwide enterprise network infrastructure market for 2017–2021. In Worldwide Enterprise Networking Infrastructure 2017 Top 10 Predictions (IDC #US41358417, February 2017), IDC explored emerging trends materially impacting the network infrastructure market. Among those are trends that are changing fundamental assumptions about network infrastructure, such as SDN, open networking, IoT, and SD-WAN. At the same time, increased demands around end-user applications and devices and the general increased importance of the network to all aspects of business will spur significant investments and innovations in network infrastructure in both the datacenter and the enterprise. However, the final impact and ultimate trajectory of these forces are still uncertain."Digital transformation cannot occur without a strong network infrastructure at its foundation. Even though market forces such as cloud, SDN, and open source are reshaping the way networks are deployed, the network infrastructure market will continue to be positioned for growth as digital business models become more entrenched." — Nolan Greene, senior research analyst, Network Infrastructure, IDC
