International Data Corporation (IDC) today released the latest Worldwide System Infrastructure Software 2012-2016 forecast and 1H2012 vendor shares from the Worldwide Semiannual Software Tracker. The Worldwide Semiannual Software Tracker monitors competitive market data from more than 220 software vendors in 26 System Infrastructure Software (SIS) functional markets across 49 countries. Information provided includes semiannual market sizes, semiannual vendor shares, and annual market forecast data for each of the twenty-six functional markets that comprise System Infrastructure Software.
System Infrastructure Software and the virtualization effect
According to the latest release, the overall System Infrastructure Software revenues are expected to grow 2.7% year over year to $39.2 billion in 2012. One of the main components of the SIS market is the System Software segment, which represents more than 42% of the overall SIS market. More than 74% of System Software is comprised of Operating Systems and Subsystems Software, which is a mature market that typically experiences flat or slightly positive growth year over year. In comparison, the Virtualization Solutions market is expected to grow 12.3% year over year in 2013 and maintain this pace as it moves from 14% overall market share in 2011 to more than 20% in 2016. Within the Virtualization Solutions segment, the Virtual Machine and Cloud System Software sub-segment is expected to finish 2012 with a 16.7% growth rate and is forecast to grow 15.5% year over year in 2013. VMware continues as the leader in this market, gaining share year over year (1H2012 vs 1H2011) and capturing more than 80% market share.
Technology and business trends assure future adoption of Security Software
The second largest SIS market is Security Software. This market is comprised of 7 security functional markets where Identity and Access Management Software stands out year over year. It is expected to grow 7.6% year over year in 2012 and 9.4% in 2013 reaching almost 22% market share. The battle for leadership in this market is fierce as there are only 2.5 points of market share between the top 4 vendors (EMC, Oracle, IBM, and CA Technologies), and behind them is a large list of growing vendors in this area, including Symantec, SafeNet Inc., Quest Software, Attachmate, Hitachi, Gemalto, Fujitsu, and HP. On the other hand, the biggest Security market, Endpoint Security, is dominated by Symantec and Intel Corp. (McAfee), while Kaspersky, Sophos, and AVG grow at a double-digit rate to join Trend Micro among the top vendors in this market.
"Even with the current macroeconomic uncertainty, organizations continue to invest in solutions to prevent attacks and mitigate risks," said John Grady, research manager, Security Products. "As virtualization, cloud, and BYOD technologies continue to expand, the associated security concerns need to be addressed. IDC expects strong growth in the security market as organizations adopt these emerging technologies and move to secure their deployments."
System Management is driven by the cloud and virtualized environments
During the last two semiannual periods, the fastest growing segment in SIS has been the System and Network Management Software market, which grew 6.7% year over year in the first half of 2012. The recent high growth rates seen in this market rely on virtualization and system-predictability related management requirements, which is shown by the fact that the fastest growing sub-segments are Workload Scheduling and Automation (11.6%), Change and Configuration Management (8.7%), and Event Management (8.5%). From the competitive point of view IBM, CA and BMC are still the top vendors mainly because these vendors have a wide portfolio that covers both mainframe and distributed systems. This past advantage becomes a disadvantage in terms of growth as mainframes continue to show slow long-term growth. In terms of market share, pure distributed system vendors will benefit from this situation in the future. In that sense, vendors like HP, Microsoft, and VMware have gained share year over year. Other emerging vendors showing very high growth rates in recent periods are Egenera Inc., Rightscale, Flexera Software, Dell, ServiceNow, Splunk, and Netuitive, among others.
According to Tim Grieser, program vice president, Enterprise System Management Software, "The future outlook for the overall system infrastructure software market remains positive, although growth rates are impacted by ongoing economic weakness and uncertainty. Software that addresses key areas in security and system management will benefit from growth in complexity of distributed, virtualized, and cloud environments."

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.
