Worldwide Operating Systems and Subsystems Forecast, 2016–2020

This IDC study covers the operating systems and subsystems market and provides a five-year forecast (2016–2020) for operating systems and subsystems revenue, broken out by platform and geography. IDC sees this market as being pivotal to the adoption of 3rd Platform compute paradigms."Operating systems and subsystems remain critical to modern compute infrastructure as no cloud can operate without operating systems in the stack," said Al Gillen, group VP, Enterprise Infrastructure, IDC. "While we expect a flattening off of revenue generation from this market segment, there is no dearth of new operating system deployments, thanks to the substantial growth taking place for Linux in both paid and nonpaid operating environment deployments."
