Worldwide Workload Scheduling and Automation Software Forecast, 2017–2021

This IDC study presents a five-year forecast for the worldwide workload scheduling and automation software market. This study updates the previous forecast published in Worldwide Workload Scheduling and Automation Software Forecast Update, 2016–2020 (IDC #US40936616, July 2016)."The datacenter automation submarket, which includes a mix of software and SaaS offerings for physical and virtual systems infrastructure automation, provisioning, self-service, and orchestration, continues to drive the overall growth of the worldwide workload scheduling and automation software market," explains Mary Johnston Turner, IDC research vice president, Enterprise System Management Software. "Demand for workload management software increased slowly in 2015 due at least in part to the increased use of big data workloads and modernization of existing application environments to support digital transformation initiatives across many mature enterprises."
