LONDON, Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:
Worldwide SaaS and Cloud Software 2013-2017 Forecast and 2012 Vendor Shares
This IDC study presents IDC's view of worldwide SaaS and cloud software performance, by vendor in 2012, and anticipated performance through 2017. The cloud software market reached $28.0 billion in revenue in 2012, a 28.4% YoY growth rate. IDC expects cloud software will grow to $76.1 billion by 2017, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22.1%. SaaS delivery will significantly outpace traditional software product delivery, growing nearly five times faster than the software market as a whole and becoming the significant growth driver to all functional software markets. By 2017, the cloud software model will account for $1 of every $6 spent on software.
According to Robert P. Mahowald, program vice president of IDC's SaaS and Cloud Services research practice, "Figuring out how to find and capitalize on the enormous cloud services transformation is the number 1 strategic goal of all major IT product vendors. SaaS, and broader public cloud opportunities, represents both a tremendous challenge to meet change heads-on and a huge opportunity to realign with partners, create new capabilities, move into new markets, and define new leaders."
