Market Analysis: Shared Cloud Infrastructure for Enterprise Applications Forecast 2014 - 2019

Many enterprise organizations have begun the year with aggressive plans to make their infrastructure Cloud-ready. In earlier years enterprises took baby steps towards building Cloud Infrastructure for various reasons. However, 2014 will see enterprise adoption of Cloud Infrastructure on a broader scale and in a very methodical manner.

The principal advantages of collaborative hosted platforms and services far outweigh the shortcomings including security and reliability concerns. The market for Enterprise Cloud Infrastructure through 2019 represents a significant opportunity to those companies that position themselves to exploit opportunities.

Shared Cloud Infrastructure for Enterprise Applications: Market Analysis and Forecast 2014 - 2019 is must read for Cloud vendors, service providers, and network operators as well as anyone involved in Enterprise infrastructure planning, budgeting, and strategy. Our research findings indicate that most major business needs will be met by anticipated targeted solutions to address requirements, bridging the gap between enterprises and providers of IaaS.

General Methodology

Mind Commerce Publishing's research methodology encompasses input from a wide variety of sources.

We rely heavily upon our Subject Matter Experts (SME) in terms of their market knowledge, unique perspective, and vision. We utilize SME industry contacts as well as previous customers and participants in our market surveys and interactive interviews.

In addition, we rely upon our extensive internal database, which contains modeling, qualitative analysis, and quantitative data. We review secondary sources and compare to our primary sources to update previous findings (for prior version reports) and/or compile baseline information for technology and market modeling.

We share preliminary models with industry contacts (select previous clients, experts, and thought leaders) to verify the veracity of initial modeling. Prior to final report production (analysis, findings, and conclusions), we engage in an internal review with internal SMEs as well as cross-expertise, senior staff members to challenge results.

We believe that forecasts should be prepared as part of an integrated process which involves both quantitative as well as qualitative factors. We follow the following 3-step process for forecasting.

Forecasting Methodology

Step 1 - Forecasts Input: The inputs for the present and historical revenues are derived from industry players. Financial and other quantitative data for individual sub-market categories are derived from original research and tested with interviews with major industry constituents.

Step 2 - Forecasting of Future Years: Mind Commerce extends forecasts based on a variety of factors including demand drivers as well as supply side data. Key success factors and assumptions are considered.

Step 3 - Validation of Data: The final step is to validate projections, which is accomplished in consultation with both internal and external industry experts, including both topic and regional experts. Adjustments are made to the forecasts based on factors identified throughout this process.
