Commenting on the report, an analyst from the team said: “Large multinational cloud computing companies are speeding up their acquisitions in the market in South Africa and establishing local offices in the country. SAP, one of the most well-known companies in the Global Cloud Computing market, has started cooperating with domestic organizations. Other cloud computing companies such as Google, Microsoft, and IBM have also grown aggressive and are chasing SAP, trying to increase their market shares with IaaS and SaaS offerings. In order to change the situation, domestic companies in South Africa are advised to protect themselves from being acquired by multinationals and instead to establish a strategic partnership with them to secure their technology and expertise. Increased government initiatives might help local providers to maintain their market presence.”

According to the report, though there are many factors driving the growth of the Cloud Computing market in South Africa, one of the main drivers is the evolution of data centers market in South Africa.
