TechNavio Announces the Publication of its Report – Global Storage Software Market 2011–2015
TechNavio today launched its report Global Storage Software Market 2011–2015 based on an in-depth study covering the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions. The report aims to aid decision makers’ understanding of the present and the future landscape of the Global Storage Software market.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from TechNavio’s Enterprise Computing team said, “A computer system, in which software and hardware solutions work collaboratively to deliver optimal performance and a high level of flexibility, is said to be perfectly consolidated. Many software storage vendors have developed partnerships with computer hardware companies such as HP, Dell, IBM, and Fujitsu to provide such systems. Larger vendors have acquired pure-play storage solutions providers such as StorageTek and Veritas to provide this kind of service. As a result of this consolidation, many established players will start providing combined products comprising extra features such as content management systems within the storage software to allow integrated retrieval and archival processes.”
According to the report, enterprise applications, such as ERP software, CRM software, and SCM software, are generating large volumes of information and this will continue to increase. The majority of corporate data sources include the data generated from these enterprise applications, along with newly generated cloud-based, social network, and device data. These data must be accessible as part of or as an extension to a corporate information framework, and should be made available for analyses and decision-making processes. This need leads to the increasing significance of storage management and protection processes.
The report also discusses that one of the main challenges in the Global Storage Software market is the need to develop software that can handle the complex combinations of storage tools from various vendors.
The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key players.
