International Data Corporation (IDC) recently released a report entitled “Worldwide Cloud Systems Management Software Market Shares, 2015: Year of Continued Expansion.”
One of the key findings was the expectation that by the end of 2017, “...over 80% of enterprise IT organizations will commit to hybrid cloud architectures encompassing multiple public cloud services, as well as private cloud and/or noncloud infrastructure resources.”
Additionally, the report found that Microsoft is hot on the tail of market leader VMware for Worldwide Cloud Systems Management Software. In fact, Microsoft had the fastest growing market share for cloud systems management last year, outpacing VMware.
