An IDC Report about the impact of cloud computing on the IT market:
In 2015, public cloud services will account for 46 percent of net new growth in overall IT spending in five key product categories – applications, application development and deployment, systems infrastructure software, basic storage, and servers, according to the report.
Software-oriented cloud services (SaaS) will account for roughly three quarters of all spending on public cloud IT services throughout the forecast. This includes all three software-oriented cloud categories, not just applications. Spending on hardware-oriented cloud services (servers and storage) will be largely driven by SaaS providers building out their infrastructure.
If I read this correctly, there’s now word about Database-as-a-Service.
