North America and European Virtualization Aggregate Markets to Top $218 Billion over the coming Five Years

North American and European Virtualization Market Forecast are both going to grow by a healthy 8.5% CAGR over 2010 – 2016 period, creating aggregate markets of $123.8 Billion in North America and $94.7 Billion in Europe over the same period.

This is one of the conclusions reached by Market Intel Group’s new research report titled: “The Future of Virtualization, Cloud Computing and Green IT – Global Technologies & Markets Outlook – 2011-2016”.

The report, with its 385 pages, 235 tables and 248 figures, is the only available research simultaneously describing, analyzing and forecasting the evolution of three emerging IT technologies and trends, two of which are currently near what Gartner Inc.’s Hype Cycle refers to as the “peak of inflated expectations”. The result is unique insight into the economic, technological and business future of computing.

The report covers in detail vendors, products, installed-base, procurement and markets of Virtualization, Cloud Computing and Green IT sectors. Furthermore, two possible forecast scenarios - one hypothesizing a slow economic recovery, and the other hypothesizing a fast economic recovery - give planners, purchasers and suppliers a well-reasoned over-the-horizon perspective of the possible ways computing will evolve over the next five years.

Among others, the report includes such crucial insights as:

- Technology Outlook, including drivers, inhibitors and SWOT analysis
- Market and Technology Forecast by technology
- Market and Technology Forecast by region
- Procurement Forecast by Technology and Region
- Services and Upgrade Market Forecast, by Technology and by Region
- Business Opportunities

Firms of all sizes need to be aware of three emerging technologies and trends, two of which are currently near what Gartner Inc.’s Hype Cycle refers to as the “peak of inflated expectations”:

- Virtualization
- Cloud Computing
- Green IT1.

While some prefer to plan for these technologies in a piecemeal fashion, there are true synergies to be realized by understanding the relationships between them, as well as their relative positions in the technology effectiveness life cycle, that will help you better leverage your investment in Information Technology. Virtualization and Green IT can both make an enterprise’s IT operations more efficient and decrease capital and operating expenses, both present opportunities for purchasers and suppliers. Cloud Computing, on the other hand, will be a disruptive technology that will ultimately change the face of computing. As you will learn in this forecast, it will have far more impact on the Information Technology industry and society as a whole than either of the other two.

Scope of This Report:

The report examines, analyses, and predicts the evolution of Virtualization, Cloud Computing, and Green IT, their current and potential markets, and estimated industry outlays (expenditures) on selected key technologies over the next five years. (Please review the Table of Contents and the lists of Figures and Tables for the names of the selected technologies.) Virtualization and Cloud Computing are complex Information Technologies, each one consisting of over 30 individual contributing technologies. This forecast, in its examination of three technology domains, will cover only the major, high level technologies, but not the minor, contributing technologies. The goal of this forecast is to present related markets across these domains. Breadth of insight, not depth, is the goal.

This report is intended as a guide to strategy development, and will inform you of opportunities presented by these technologies as well as the associated risks. It contains a lot of information to help consumers of the technologies make wise purchasing decisions, as well as market forecast information that should prove valuable to producers. It is not, however, intended to be a guide for implementation; there is plenty of implementation information and guidance available on the web.

Server-side technologies (e.g. Servers and Server Operating Systems (OSs)) are in scope, and Client-side technologies (e.g. thin client PCs for desktop virtualization (with the exception of Hosted Virtual Desktops), all Client PCs for Server Virtualization and Cloud Computing) are out of scope for this forecast. The E-waste disposal market, which is related to Green IT, is also out of scope.

Who is This Report For?:

Large and medium sized businesses are exposed to the greatest risk from adopting (or failing to adopt in time) emerging and disruptive technologies. Two emerging technologies discussed in this forecast, Virtualization and Green IT, are already changing the cost structure for providing and consuming Information Technology services and are still far from reaching their full operational and financial impact. Cloud Computing will cause even greater changes; it will be a disruptive technology in the Information Technology space. It will have major impacts that will be felt across all industries that consume or deliver IT services. Existing business models will lose their effectiveness, and new ones will rise to replace them. C-level Executives, Decision and Policy Makers, Business Developers, and Investors and Entrepreneurs can all use the insights provided by this forecast to prepare for the next ten years of fast paced change.

The analyst team that researched, analyzed and wrote this report brings together a blend of skills and talents in relevant areas, including: Information Technology, emerging technologies, future scenarios, business and general intelligence, and industry/market research and analysis.

Every forecast requires a mix of explicit or implicit methods, assumptions, and data, almost none of which can be perfect. Both the play and the power of the forecast uncertainties expand as the forecast period extends.

There are seven steps to the forecasts in this outlook, built on our analysts’ years of experience in forecasting the technology markets:

- Describe and clearly categorize the areas covered by this report as they are today.

- Estimate the baseline segments.

- Draw on the experience and judgment of expert observers. We analyzed the opinions of centrally-positioned professionals regarding key elements of this report and analysis, and used their input to test and inform the thinking of our researchers and analysts.

- Review and distill information in the literature, the trade press, conference notes, and many informal interviews within the related communities. Specify relevant facts and assumptions.

- Review and distil our own experience with technology market forecasts for relevant clues and examples.

- Define major potential scenarios rooted in the dynamics of the relevant market and the economy.

- Pull the information together and populate the forecast algorithms for market evolution over the forecast period.

Despite the risk of being inaccurate, forecasts are worth doing and using. Business decisions must be made on incomplete and imperfect information; forecasts help distill critical information and reduce the chaos.
