|出版日||ページ情報||英文 8 Pages
This IDC study covers the worldwide storage services market sizing and five-year forecast. A breakout by service activity is provided for 2016-2021, which includes consulting, integration, management, and support services."In this increasingly complex competitive environment, IT has become a critical factor to the success of any business. CIOs are seeking to leverage IT capabilities and services to drive improvements in all aspects of their business operations. Yet, for a large majority of corporations, information technology is not within the company's core competency skill set. The strategic nature of IT and storage technologies means customers will turn to third-party service firms for expertise and guidance through their digital transformation efforts. Steady transition away from traditional, proprietary-based storage systems to cloud-based storage, software-defined storage (SDS), and converged systems is having a profound impact on the market. To successfully act in the trusted advisor role, service firms must evolve their service offerings to match the requirement of the next era of IT." - Jed Scaramella, program director, IDC's Storage and Data Management Services.
