IDC: VMware Leads Market in Cloud System Management Software

IDC has just published a new study that discusses 2017 vendor market shares and market activity across the worldwide cloud system management software market, a submarket of IDC’s IT system and service management (ITSSM) software market. The study includes worldwide market revenue and growth rate for the total market in 2017 as well as vendor revenue, market shares, and growth rates of the leading vendors.

Once again, VMware is positioned as the leader in this market, with the biggest market share and the growth faster than the market.

According to Stephen Elliot, program vice president, Management Software and DevOps,

IDC estimates that vendor revenue in the worldwide cloud system management software and SaaS market grew 18% in 2017 to exceed $4 billion.


IDC study states that

VMware continues to lead the market, reflecting the company’s ongoing efforts to offer customers a unified approach to cloud management monitoring, analytics, and automation. With vCloud Suite and vSphere with Operations Management, VMware has used its management software and SaaS delivered portfolio to differentiate vSphere and help maintain overall corporate revenue growth even as its core hypervisor market has matured and standalone hypervisor sales have flattened. As many enterprises have opted to build private clouds using VMware technology, the company’s management offerings have been widely deployed into cloud environments. At VMworld 2018 customer events, VMware introduced a series of new products that demonstrate the company’s commitment to evolving its portfolio to support the needs of multi-cloud enterprise strategies, including updates to vRealize Suite.”

The report provides relevant data and commentary on many players in the cloud management market, complete with the revenue numbers over 2015, 2016, and 2017, as well as the market share in 2017, and the growth %% from 2016 to 2017. According to the report, VMware has been growing faster than the market – at 20.7% – which means some of the other vendors have been losing their market share.
