Worldwide Storage Software Forecast, 2016–2020

This IDC study examines the storage software market for the 2016–2020 period."The 2015 worldwide storage software market experienced its first annual decline in years," said Eric Sheppard, research director, Storage. "A big part of this decline can be attributed to a strengthening U.S. dollar, but exchange rates were by no means the only influence on market demand. Each of the functional markets was impacted by core trends occurring within the broader storage and IT industry. When added together, many drivers and inhibitors affecting the storage software market are expected to result in increased global spending on storage software through 2020."
