Worldwide Cloud Server Forecast, 2016–2020

This IDC study provides a worldwide forecast for spending and shipments for servers in cloud (across public and private clouds) versus traditional IT deployments. It also assesses the impact of cloud (public and hosted private) on the location (on-premise versus off-premise) and ownership of IT infrastructure in the next five years. For detailed information on spending for each hardware IT segment (server, storage, and network) and within each region, refer to IDC’s Worldwide Quarterly Cloud IT Infrastructure Tracker and Forecast data set with double counting of storage for internal server storage removed.

“Workload migration to cloud, whether public, private, or hybrid, is just one possible aspect of organizations experiencing digital transformation through cloud. While high growth in cloud server spending is an indicator of the increasing role cloud plays in the digital transformation journey, the real work is happening at the organizational level, as IT itself continues to evolve from a cost center into a business partner, from a product into a service." — Kuba Stolarski, research director, Servers and Computing Platforms

Payer and Provider Survey: Value-Based Healthcare IT Transformation Technology Portfolio, 2016–2017

This IDC Survey focuses on value-based healthcare. IDC Health Insights fielded a survey in May and June 2016 of 101 U.S. acute care hospitals and 100 U.S. health insurers. These organizations were asked about connected health investments as well as programmatic and IT-related activities to support their value-based initiatives. The results from this survey should be considered directional.

The topics in value-based healthcare include IT investments in both infrastructure and business applications.

“The survey results are encouraging as healthcare organizations report more strategic drivers of value-based programs such as competitive advantage and growth. A significant percentage of healthcare organizations realized both clinical and financial benefits that met or exceeded their expectations. Healthcare organizations are advancing in their reimbursement strategies focusing on bundled payments and upside risk contracts," says Cynthia Burghard, research director, IDC Health Insights’ Value-Based Healthcare IT Transformation Strategies.

Infrastructure for Business Analytics (SAP)

This IDC study provides extensive detail and in-depth perspectives on the impact that the drive toward SAP HANA has on datacenter infrastructure. The market for SAP HANA infrastructure (servers and storage) was worth $10 billion in 2016 and will grow with significant CAGRs depending on SAP HANA adoption rates. The implications of the switch to HANA on end users’ infrastructure are tremendous.

“Providing a large number of detailed data sets, this IDC special study shows where businesses are today in terms of software and hardware for business analytics as well as if and how they plan to adopt SAP HANA in the next 24 months," said Peter Rutten, research manager at IDC’s Servers and Compute Platforms Group. “We’ve attempted to provide vendors that operate in the infrastructure for SAP HANA market with in-depth insights in their potential customer base; we’ve also sized the market and determined a — quite promising — market forecast through 2020."
