Prepare to thrive in the new, distributed compute ecosystem
By 2024, the number of edge-located servers will double, unlocking new opportunities for innovation and for new market entrants. Meanwhile, cloud computing continues to soar as companies adopt a cloud-first strategy. We are here to help guide you through these developments and to position your organization for success.
A $72 billion equipment opportunity awaits at the edge.
The move to the edge is giving rise to a new distributed computing ecosystem that spans cloud service providers, communication services providers, and enterprise on-premise locations. Top edge computing use cases—such as manufacturing process automation, immersive experiences, behavior monitoring, gaming, smart cities, and autonomous vehicles—will require computing power moved closer to the end user. Simultaneously, the use of cloud computing is booming as organizations look for more agile approaches to IT delivery of applications, workloads, and services – fostering a $400 billion off-premises cloud services market by 2024.
Whether you are a service provider, technology vendor, enterprise decision maker, investor, or journalist, rely on Omdia for timely, accurate market data and forecasting on data center services and construction, IT and physical equipment infrastructure – as well as insights into managing the IT ecosystem and operations. We help you keep pace with this rapidly evolving ecosystem and spot emerging opportunities.
