Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “Enterprises are witnessing rapid increases in data growth especially in unstructured data volume. Structured data has a pre-defined data structure whereas unstructured data has no specific internal data structure. Examples of structured data include databases such as IBM’s DB2 and Oracle Database. Examples of unstructured data include documents, audio files, and video files. Enterprise applications generate large volumes of information, and this is expected to continue in the future. The majority of corporate data sources include data generated from enterprise applications, along with newly generated cloud-based data, social network data, and device data. This data must be accessible as part of or as an extension to the corporate information framework, and it should be made available for analysis and decision making in an easy and secure way. This results in an increase in the significance of effectively managing storage resources.”

According to the report, among the numerous growth drivers for the Global SDDC market, increasing demand of cloud computing is the major growth driver. Cloud services help in cost-effective performance and increase productivity. Enterprises are increasingly embracing both public and private cloud computing services.

Further, the report states that one of the main challenges is uncertainty in the market due to early adoption stages of SDDC. SDDC is currently in its early adoption stages and pilot testing phases. Many vendors are still running beta projects on the technology and others are planning to enter the market in the near future. Many enterprises are waiting to see initial testing results, and the number of technological deployments is still relatively low.

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 vendors.
