MARKET AN ALYSIS

Worldwide Software 20082012 Forecast Summary


Richard V. Heiman

The worldwide software market underwent very strong revenue growth from $231.1
billion in 2006 to $262.7 billion in 2007, an annual increase of 13.7%. However, from
2007 to 2012, the projected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) is a more modest
7.7%. IDC believes that:
! The 2007 growth was in part due to the weakness of the U.S. dollar against other
major currencies.
! The software industry is maturing and consolidating. This phenomenon continued
in 2007 and will do so in the future.
! Emerging market drivers such as Eureka 2.0, software appliances, serviceoriented architecture (SOA), and virtualization will provide growth opportunities
even in the face of macroeconomic uncertainties and volatility.
! Successful software vendors will be those that can best adapt their technologies
and business models to the continually changing dynamics of the marketplace.

Worldwide Software Market Drivers, 20082012


IDC published a number of predictions studies in late 2007 and early 2008 with
analysts' views on the software market drivers for 2008 and beyond. Of course, the
current macroeconomic climate, particularly but not exclusively in the United States,
continues to be extremely volatile, with gasoline now over $4.00 a gallon, the ongoing
weakness of the dollar, and the housing market crisis. Nevertheless, these
predictions still provide important context for forecasting the software marketplace.
Key predictions excerpted from these documents include:
! IT suppliers will focus on hypergrowth emerging markets: "BRIC+9" and
SMB. The 2008 forecast for cooling growth in worldwide IT spending will
continue to drive the industry's major players to concentrate on high-growth
emerging markets, with increasing investments in two key areas:
#

In emerging economies, led by the BRIC countries and the next nine
important emerging markets all growing at two to three times the market
average

In the SMB segment, in developed and developing economies, growing at


810% worldwide (SMB specialists in the IT market will be prime acquisition
and partnering candidates.)

! Eureka 2.0 applications will emerge that aggregate, categorize, mine, and
analyze user behavior. The rising cacophony of crowds is already driving new
applications that mine user behavior. As the din becomes unbearable, both users
and vendors will try to make sense of too much information by looking for
patterns and clues that distinguish one person or query from another. Happily for
this market, business intelligence and categorization and search or matching
engines become the key to discerning the differences. We dub these new
applications recommendation engines, user data mining in real time, real-time
trend analysis, and personalized search results based on predicted similarities of
interest and behavior Eureka 2.0. These applications mine and harness the
wisdom of crowds, based on the contextual and social aspects of information
work and information exchange. Social networking services and application
vendors will recognize the power of combining the information, relationships, and
conversations they capture with powerful mining, clustering, matching, and
recommendation engines. This combination will give end users a powerful
information discovery platform that leverages trusted relationships with other
people to filter and rank information.
! SOA will become more critical in forming the foundation for provisioning
and consuming services. When SOA started gaining popularity some years
back, many individuals and enterprises approached it (and still do) as an
integration paradigm. The idea of services being provisioned and sourced
anywhere to be called upon, composed, and consumed anywhere is helping
drive and converge SOA activities within the world of software as a service
(SaaS). IDC believes that enterprises will become even more interested in
adopting SOA constructs to take advantage of services being sourced from a
variety of parties, especially external services on demand. What is important to

#213259

2008 IDC

note is that many organizations that may have not yet jumped on the SOA
bandwagon for a variety of reasons may be compelled to do so in order to best
leverage such on-demand services and sourcing options. Second, many ondemand application and services providers that entered the market without
following SOA architectural tenets or upholding industry standards such as Web
services will be rapidly adjusting and enhancing their offerings in order to
compete for customers demanding more integration and support capabilities, and
to provide what is necessary to build out a rich ecosystem of partners to build out
more integrated solutions and drive business their way.
! Application pairing strategies (deep vertical applications combined with
best-of-breed functional applications) will become the dominant bundling
strategy for reaching enterprise and midmarket customers. Last year, IDC
predicted that customer demand for application software that is more ready to
use would drive software vendors to offer even more specific vertical solutions as
derivatives of their product suites, referred to as microverticalization. That has
now become the mainstream strategy for many enterprise vendors as they have
continued to develop or acquire more and deeper vertical software and
intellectual capital. In addition, most enterprise vendors have released SOAenabled versions of their applications. These two factors combined, customer
demand for microvertical solutions and easier integration due to SOA
capabilities, have led to a different go-to-market approach from many vendors.
Instead of leading with the more "core" ERP applications in a sales situation, the
approach is often to lead with the microvertical solution.
! Ecosystem owners will make content management an integral part of their
stack the next step in the natural evolution of content management to
infrastructure service. Ecosystem owners have staked their claims and placed
their bets over the past few years (culminating in a cascade of large acquisitions
in 2006) in content management. As everyone is well aware, the lion's share of
the information in the enterprise exists outside of the rows and columns of
relational databases and the enterprise applications that run on top of them.
Managing unstructured information business documents; rich media such as
images, audio, and video; email and other communications; and so forth has
risen to the top of the compliance agenda. In 2008, content collaboration and
transactional content come to the fore in customer agendas. Aiding and abetting
this is the rise of video and other rich media in the enterprise for executive
communications to employees, training and certification business processes, and
employee collaboration, whether via videoconferencing or via on-demand replay
of captured meetings all of which creates fresh demand for content
technologies that can help classify, index, manage, and find relevant information.
Vendors have already begun to lay the foundation. In 2008, loosely coupled
solutions will start to morph into platforms that implement content awareness at
the API and Web services levels at different tiers of the stack. It will take a few
more years for a fully integrated platform for structured and unstructured
information to emerge, but we'll see the outlines in 2008.
! Consolidation will continue as large IT vendors continue to extend their
versions of the information access and management platform by acquiring
smaller, specialized technology companies. Acquisitions in this space have

2008 IDC

#213259

often involved a fairly large vendor, such as FileNet, Cognos, Hyperion, or


Stellent, being acquired by an even larger vendor, such as IBM or Oracle. The
next phase for information access and analysis consolidation will shift to the
acquisition of innovative start-ups by bigger players. Large software vendors will
continue to extend their versions of the information access and analysis platform
by acquiring smaller, specialized technology companies. These smaller vendors
provide missing pieces to the larger vendors' offerings. The business model for
many of these start-ups has acquisition, not world domination, as the end game.
! Business process management will be increasingly viewed as a must-have
despite the gloomy economy. While many signals indicate a slower IT
spending climate in 2008, that doesn't mean all software will be equally affected.
IDC believes that business process management suite (BPMS) software is one
area likely to experience positive, counter-cyclical growth.
! Automation will play an important role as IT organizations control costs,
improve service delivery, meet compliance regulations, and manage virtual
resources. Automation will play an increasingly critical role as IT organizations
strive to control costs, improve service delivery, meet compliance requirements,
and manage virtualized resources. Automation will range from simple tactical
task-based applications to sophisticated policy-driven solutions. Expect
traditional systems management software vendors to increasingly compete on
several fronts, including run book automation, workload scheduling and
automation, and end-to-end datacenter automation. Automated management of
virtualized resources will grow as IT organizations look for automated control of
increasingly dynamic infrastructures. Another area to watch is automated
management of infrastructure to achieve power and cooling operating
efficiencies. One outcome to watch carefully is the strong potential for increased
merger and acquisition activities, particularly on the part of large companies to
acquire smaller point product vendors, as the giants try to accelerate the filling
out of their automation portfolios.
! IT portfolio management will provide the missing application life-cycle
management link IT governance will emerge. Key product capabilities for IT
portfolio management will deepen, enabling global 2000 executives the ability to
leverage quantitative input from testing, software change, and configuration
management and requirements tools to evolve qualitative decision making and to
better prioritize the IT project portfolio. Emerging IT governance (ITG) or the
integration between IT asset portfolio management tools and IT project portfolio
management tools will enable coordination across IT and operational teams to
facilitate corporate planning across these key areas. Alliances between existing
ITPM vendors and/or tighter integration with internally owned asset portfolio
management tools will extend beyond those that have already integrated
products and occur during the 20082010 time frame.
! System management vendors will partner with nonmanagement vendors
for virtual application life-cycle management, generating industry buzz and
revenue. System management vendors have partnered with application,
virtualization, hardware, and services vendors for technology acquisition as well
as to extend the reach of their channels to customers. What is different here is

#213259

2008 IDC

that these relationships will leverage the acquisition/consolidation boom in other


software markets to provide a management console to leverage an end-to-end
view of the service being delivered to that customer.
! Virtualization will move from a technology discussion to a broader
business value discussion and will come to be known as "virtualization
across the enterprise." For much of the industry, the most exciting story around
virtualization software has been mostly focused on server consolidation and
reducing physical footprints and the resulting hardware acquisition cost
reductions, resulting in lower power and cooling costs. During 2008, watch for
customers to begin upleveling their virtualization road maps from a relatively
simplistic technology play to a more comprehensive and longer-term end-to-end
adoption road map that will impact servers, clients, storage, and even network
architectures over the next decade. Simply stated, virtualization begins a process
that will extend this technology phenomenon far beyond its current general role
as a tool for server consolidation. Live migration, or the ability to move virtual
servers to alternate computing resources while running, is a trend that will lead
virtualization platform providers to accelerate their capabilities in performance
management, process automation, disaster recovery, application awareness,
change and configuration management, and lab automation. This solutionsbased approach will also drive deeper and tighter collaborations between
hypervisor providers and ISVs, via partnerships and integration with leading
vendors in the storage software, network I/O virtualization, and application
market segments. Ultimately, this approach will become known as "virtualization
across the enterprise" and will be seen as the foundation for true service-centric
computing through the use of policy-based automation software to coordinate
between the server, storage, network, and user client access devices and enduser software.
! Software appliances will move beyond an application delivery form factor
and become a new medium for competitive differentiation, accomplishing
previously difficult tasks such as aggregation of unused processor and
storage resources. Last year, IDC predicted that software appliances would
become a household word in corporate IT. We believe that prediction has, for the
most part, come true. Our expectations for software appliance adoption are for
basic network and Web infrastructure appliances to lead the curve, followed by
network-oriented solutions such as PBX solutions, with business-oriented
software appliances taking a secondary role in terms of the overall volume of
adoption. Security software appliances will be a hot ticket, but an emerging new
class of infrastructure software appliances will make a strong showing for
themselves. These software appliances will include devices that aggregate
resources that are either underutilized or totally unavailable from existing
infrastructure configurations.
! Open source software will increasingly impact business decisions. Open
source software is continuing to drive innovation in the application development
software market and is influencing business decisions and shifting fundamental
approaches to software creation. While users are now beginning to seriously
address content and license management issues, vendors are evaluating OSS
leverage, opportunities, and challenges. Traditional software development

2008 IDC

#213259

strategies dominate, but they are changing. Hybrid business models emerging
now will evolve further and solidify over the next several years. Competing with
free is always difficult. The result is declining prices in one context but potential
leverage in others.
! 2008 won't be the year of the Linux desktop in the conventional sense, but
the combination of new form factor client devices, client OS virtualization,
and application virtualization will open the door for Linux to serve other
emerging needs. 2008 won't be the year of the Linux desktop, again at least
not as in the form factor of a Windows Vista killer. However, if you look beyond
the traditional PC form factor and consider deployments like client-focused
software appliances, thin-client operating systems, and server-hosted client
operating system deployments, or even in related form factors such as an
appliance built on Linux designed to run on Intel VPro, you may just find that the
year of the Linux desktop is beginning to happen. While we still don't expect any
"big bang" for the entry of Linux into the client market (and let's not forget there
was never any "big bang" for Linux on the server side), we do expect to see
Linux on the client side continuing to gain momentum.
! Unified communications (UC) will start transforming business applications
and telephony in 2008. After two years of supply-side marketing from vendors,
customers will start implementing UC solutions to transform business
applications and telephony in 2008. These customers will be looking to provide
their users with an integrated user experience for unified messaging (email, fax,
and voice messaging), online presence, instant messaging, Web audio and
videoconferencing, and VoIP calling/IP telephony/call routing, and so on using a
variety of PC and wireless devices. While many UC applications have been
deployed individually over the past decade, gains in unified user interfaces, VoIP
call control, network-delivered presence, and other advances have provided the
glue to bind these applications together so that users can share, collaborate,
discuss, store, search, and talk within a rich unified user experience. The
transformation will begin simultaneously in two distinct areas of the organization:
within the knowledge worker's communication environment and within the contact
center.
See the Learn More section of this study for an extensive listing of IDC's predictions
documents.

SITUATION OVERVIEW
Worldwide Software Market Performance
in 2007
Table 2 shows a ranking of the top 100 worldwide software vendors by revenue and
market share. Table 3 lists the worldwide software vendors in alphabetical order. A
view of the key software vendors and their key market shares in the worldwide
packaged software market by region is provided in Table 4.

#213259

2008 IDC

This study also includes revenue data for each of the three primary markets: AD&D,
applications, and SIS. AD&D revenue is covered in Tables 57. Applications revenue
is covered in Tables 810. Similarly, SIS revenue is displayed in Tables 1113. For
each of these primary markets, we provide a list of the top 50 vendors (by 2007
market share) and then list all vendors alphabetically with worldwide revenue and by
geographic region.
IDC calculates market share by dividing each vendor's 2007 software revenue by the
total 2007 worldwide software revenue for the market sector analyzed. Rank is also
provided and based on vendors with reported software revenue. A few of the vendors
in last year's study either departed from the software business (or from a specific
primary market segment) or were not able to identify software revenue; the result is a
dash entry for 2007 revenue and "NA" for 20062007 growth. Tables 513 are
specific to primary markets rather than the total software market.

Performance of Leading Vendors in 2007


Microsoft, IBM, Oracle, SAP, Symantec, HP, EMC, CA, Siemens, and Adobe were
the 10 leading vendors in the worldwide software market in 2007. There was no
change in ranking from 2006 for these leading vendors. Collectively, these 10 leading
vendors account for 45.7% of total worldwide packaged software revenue.
Additionally:
! It is important to note that the 2006 rankings are based on Table 2 in this study,
not on what was published last year, because divestitures, mergers and
acquisitions, and other updated information invalidate comparisons using the
2006 data from previous studies.
! To improve consistency between the Worldwide Software Market Forecaster
database (the source of the data contained within this study) and IDC regional
software trackers, IDC has removed all security hardware appliance revenue
from the Worldwide Software Market Forecaster database (revenue that was
previously included). Security appliance revenue will continue to be tracked in
IDC's Security Appliance Tracker and in selected other worldwide reports. This
adjustment had the biggest impact on the secure content and threat
management market, where approximately 40% of total revenue in 2007 was
related to security appliances.
! See Appendix A for information regarding the treatment and impact of currency
exchange rates on the data contained in this study.

Competitive Market Maps


The Competitive Market Map is an IDC tool for evaluating the competitive position of
software vendors in an increasingly complex market. The CMM is a tool that permits
quantitative competitive analysis based on four variables: size, scope, momentum,
and reliance. The definitions of these variables are contained in Appendix C.

2008 IDC

#213259

Competitive Market Maps including the top 10 vendors in each primary market are
presented in Figures 24. Common to all of these CMMs is the effect of market
consolidation. The size of the "bubbles" for the leading one or two vendors in all three
primary markets dwarf those of the rest of the vendors in the top 10. Continuing
consolidation in the software industry is clearly in evidence.

Top 50 Vendors' Shares of the Worldwide Software Market by


Operating Environment
Table 14 presents the top 50 software vendors worldwide by total software revenue
segmented by major operating environments. For situations in which packages are
licensed to multiple platforms, IDC allocates revenue to the primary server platform,
thus potentially understating client-side revenue, particularly in the applications
primary market.

Worldwide Performance in 2007 by Primary Market


Application Development and Deployment

The AD&D markets include software products used for the development and
deployment of applications. There are two major subdivisions of the AD&D primary
market:
! Software products that full-time professional developers use to develop and
deploy applications
! Data access, analysis, and delivery products that are end useroriented tools for
ad hoc data access, analysis, and reporting
In the aggregate, the worldwide AD&D software functional markets generated vendor
revenue of $60.2 billion in 2007, a healthy increase of 11.7% from the 2006 total of
$53.9 billion, as shown in Table 5, which also presents the top 50 AD&D vendors
ranked in order of 2007 worldwide revenue. The top 50 AD&D vendors accounted for
an 81.7% share of the total AD&D market in 2007, essentially unchanged from 2006.
Table 6 provides a list of the leading vendors in the worldwide AD&D market in
alphabetical order.
The Americas (predominantly the United States) accounts for the largest share of
AD&D revenue. As shown in Table 7, 2007 revenue for the Americas region was
$30.0 billion, which equates to a 49.8% share of the overall worldwide AD&D market
total. EMEA was the second-largest market, with a 36.1% share in 2007, followed by

IDC Assumption

Impact

IDC assumes that worldwide


economic growth will be slow in
2008 and marginally better in
2009. All regions are expected
to see a drop in GDP growth
from 2007. IDC expects the
economic forecasts it uses as
inputs to decline during the year
and is thus assuming GDP
growth of one-half of one
standard deviation lower than in
the Consensus Economics May
2008 poll: United States = 1.1%,
eurozone = 1.5%, Japan =
1.2%, and worldwide = 2.7%.
2009 will be slightly better
worldwide as developed
economies pick up but emerging
economies drop in delayed
reaction to the developed world.

High. The economy is now a


net inhibitor on IT spending.

The software industry is going


through a major transformation,
including basic architecture
(service-oriented architecture
[SOA]), the way software is
written (composite applications),
and the way software is
delivered (SaaS) and even
funded (advertising based). IDC
assumes that this
transformation will take a
decade but that it will, when
done, allow for much faster and
more dynamic delivery of
software functionality.

High. The new software


creation and delivery models
should allow for a quantum
increase in the ability to deliver
and integrate new software
functionality to ICT systems.
This should increase overall
spending, even as it lowers
costs.

Convergence

Convergence is a complex
phenomenon working at many
levels convergence of the
telephone network and the
Internet; communications and IT
technologies; consumer and
enterprise technologies; and
even storage, routing, and
processing in the datacenter. Of
these, perhaps the most
overarching is the convergence
of voice, video, and data
communications. IDC assumes
that this convergence is a
permanent phenomenon and
that it will pick up pace as the
decade wears on. One measure
is that IDC expects 1.9 billon
users on the Internet and 3
billion users of the phone
network by 2011. The overlap
will be significant.

High. Convergence will drive


new competitive dynamics,
offer new applications and
functions to customers, and
strain the legal and regulatory
systems. It will also drive
increased ICT spending.

Consensus Economics
estimates that U.S. profit growth
will be negative in 2008. IDC's
assumption for U.S. profit
growth is -3% for 2008 and 4%
for 2009. This is a far cry from
20%+ profit growth in 2006.

Moderate. Company profits


will not be enough to fund ICT
initiatives; new projects will
require cost cutting, quick
paybacks, and short
implementation times.

Inflation remains under control.


Consensus Economics' January
2008 poll forecasts that
consumer prices worldwide will
rise about 3%.

Low. Low inflation keeps


interest rates low and leads to
more capital spending,
including on ICT.

U.S. housing
demand

The U.S. housing market


remains in trouble, with
inventories building up, average
prices flat or falling, and loans
harder to get. The worst of the
subprime loan debacle is over,
but declining equity and higher
mortgage rates are hurting
demand. This will continue into
2009.

Moderate. Consumer
spending is over two-thirds of
the U.S. economy and a major
driver of exports in other
countries. A falloff of consumer
spending would affect ITC
markets not only directly but
also indirectly as enterprise
customers cut back because
their customers have cut back.

Through 2007, the dollar


steadily fell against major
currencies (except the yen).
Against a market basket of
currencies representing the IT
spending market, the dollar fell
about 6%. Given the current
budget and trade deficits, over
the long term, all indications are
that the dollar will continue to
lose value against most
currencies. For the purpose of
IT forecasts, IDC assumes no
major impact on the economy.
There may be impacts on
regional or country economies
(e.g., Canada), and it will
become difficult to separate true
global demand for IT products
and services from exchange
ratedriven revenue changes.

Moderate. A stable dollar


makes it easier for vendors to
manage supply lines and
stabilizes the prices of imports
and exports.

IT governance and
regulatory
compliance

Compliance is still driving some


IT spending, including
Sarbanes-Oxley, Basel II, and
HIPAA. We don't expect
compliance spending to crowd
out other IT initiatives; in fact,
compliance record-keeping
could spur initiatives in other
areas as companies clean up
their act. Increased attention to
sound IT governance policies
and compliance with regulatory
requirements will drive an
increased focus on storage and
data management.

Moderate. Compliance and


governance will have a positive
impact on spending on
infrastructure software that
aids in the archiving,
protection, and recovery of
data. Compliance spending
seems to be funding itself
through better run business
operations.

While there has been much


recent news about Internet
security, privacy, and overseas
censorship, the policy initiative
with the most potential impact is
the carrier move in the United
States to be allowed to charge
differential pricing for Internet
access and the use of the new
higher-speed circuits being
installed. At the moment, all
current telecom bills and netneutrality legislation seem
deadlocked. Expect new ones in
2008.

Low. Legislation allowing


carriers to offer different pricing
and service to different sets of
customers would enhance the
position of large, entrenched
customers and the carriers
themselves while inhibiting
innovation among start-ups
and competitors. The Internet
would bifurcate.

will get more "bang for their
buck" from the convergence
trend, putting pressure on
pricing, and resulting in more
high-value bundling. In
addition, convergence will
create new competition
between heretofore
noncompeting vendors, which
will likewise result in pricing
pressures. However,
convergence will also create
opportunities for selling

Dynamic IT

2008 IDC

IDC has identified the next style


of computing dynamic IT for
dynamic enterprises as a
style that dramatically increases
the effectiveness of IT. Within
dynamic IT are a number of
important subtrends
virtualization in the datacenter,
data federation, software as a
service, and composite and
rule-based applications. IDC
assumes the transition to
dynamic IT will be slow and
labored, but will proceed
nonetheless.

Moderate. Dynamic IT, by


adding coherence to the
enterprise usage of IT, seems
to be spurring the market; the
migration to virtualization and
datacenter consolidation will
allow companies to deploy new
applications faster.

Digital marketplace

The impact of the new digital


marketplace can be felt in the
concept of online or streaming
applications, new forms of
databases, Web-delivered
desktop software, integration of
Internet and enterprise search
and other functionality, content
delivery, and wireless
communications. The digital
marketplace will affect content
delivery, commerce, datacenter
architectures, advertising,
marketing, telecommunications,
and social interactions. It may
also accelerate the consumption
of ICT in emerging geographies,
where more and more online
populations reside.

High. Look for faster


development of the SaaS
model, more development of
composite applications, and
more directly competitive
products (e.g., desktop
search). Also look for rapid
growth of Internet advertising
revenue in emerging
geographies.

The rise of offshore IT services,


the increased integration of IT
services inside business
services, and the advent of new
service delivery models have
created a new dynamic for IT
services firms. Most firms have
developed a multishoring
capability and blended pricing
model and are now working on
ways to standardize on
technologies and
methodologies, deliver services
online or in new form factors,
invest in datacenters, and
expand into business services.
Despite the race to automate
service creation and delivery,
there is a looming talent
shortage.

Moderate. These trends


portend new competitive
dynamics in the industry
software and online services
competing with traditional IT
services as well as new
thresholds for delivery. Online
delivery models and
operational standardization,
from new technologies to
remote infrastructure services,
will allow faster and more
efficient translation of service
labor to client deliverable.

The changing IT
domain

The IT domain that was once


the care and feeding of
mainframes has evolved over
the years to include the
management of enterprise
applications, deployment of
software and applications to the
workforce, and desktop
automation. Now it is evolving
again to take on responsibility
for the phones, building
automation, sensors and RFID,
and sometimes even physical
security as proprietary systems
migrate to TCP/IP networks.
Other new applications, such as
Web 2.0 and real-time business
analytics, are driving IT-based
applications to the point of
customer or employee contact
and are becoming mission
critical along the way. This could
increase the need for IT to be so
close to the business units as to
be part of them rather than
merely service organizations.

Moderate. This migration will


generate new staffing
demands (and shortages) but
create more ultimate demand
for ICT.

Pervasive
computing

This term refers to the


proliferation of client devices
and end-user or end-use
devices at the network edge.
IDC expects that by 2011, five
times as many non-PC devices
will be connected to networks as
PCs including Internetenabled cell phones, networked
entertainment and gaming
devices, automobiles, building
automation systems, and
industrial controllers. This
doesn't even count RFID tags
and sensors. IDC assumes that
communicating client devices
will proliferate at 510 times the
rate of PCs installed. Devices
will both converge (cells phones
with more functionality) and
diverge (single-use devices,
such as RFID readers).

High. The addition of billions of


devices to the network edge
will drive the need for more
enterprise systems to deploy,
manage, and make use of
them. It will also shift the
prevailing traffic from the
center of the network outward
to edge inward, which will
affect computing and
communications architectures.

This is a term referring to a


basket of technologies and
practices designed to minimize
power costs, carbon output, and
hazardous waste. IDC's
coverage of green IT can be
found in numerous documents.
The major impact of green IT
will be seen in technology
choices based on low power,
more attention to asset disposal,
and some change in vendor
selection. Depending on the
country, voluntary adherence to
green IT principles could
become law. IDC research
reveals that that power and
cooling expenses are growing
four times as fast as new server
spend, from half of the value of
spending on new servers to
nearly three-quarters by 2011.

Moderate. The adoption of


green IT products and
practices should increase
demand for new IT products
and services.

Demographics

The aging of the workforce in


the developed world and the
growth of the workforce in
lower-cost geographies will
affect both the supply of and the
demand for IT. These may be
long-term trends, but they are
already manifest in the
globalization of the workforce
and the slow ICT market growth
in places like Western Europe.
IDC assumes that the center of
ICT supply will migrate toward
Asia and Eastern Europe and, in
general, will diversify. IDC also
expects renewed foreign direct
investment (FDI) and venture
capital (VC) funding for
emerging markets such as
China and India. ICT
consumption will migrate to
large population geographies as
the center of gravity for IT shifts
from the PC to the mobile
phone.

Moderate. We expect the


continued rise of offshore IT
services and business services
suppliers, the diversification of
services supply points to
blended models, and both
increased diversification of the
entire ICT supply chain and
risks from potential political or
economic disruption.

Many firms remain cautious with


regard to major IT
investment/project
implementation and have shifted
to a more modular approach
with longer periods of testing
and slower rates of decisionmaking implementation.

Moderate. Overall demand will


still fluctuate in the face of
macroeconomic
drivers/inhibitors, but the
market should be less volatile.
Large firms are taking a more
long-term approach to IT than
in previous years.

The near-term effect of RFID,


sensors, and embedded
systems will be negligible when
it comes to IT forecasts, but the
long-term (5- to 10-year) impact
could be profound.

Moderate. The addition of


billions of devices to the
network edge will drive the
need for more enterprise
systems to deploy, manage,
and make use of them.

Storage management functions


such as virtualization, migration,

data movement will continue to

automated ways to manage
data resident on storage helps
to mitigate the problem of a
fixed quantity of human
resources and allows users to
leverage tiered storage more
effectively.

Software is becoming more


rather than less vulnerable.
Hackers and others continue to
find ways to misuse other
people's software. Initially this
was done by exploiting a
vulnerability, but hackers are
now finding ways to just
misappropriate software without
a vulnerability. In parallel, the
attack vectors will move to focus
on two new areas: application
software and, of even greater
concern, the hypervisor layer.
Security software is more likely
to be delivered as a service
and/or a security appliance than
it will be bought as shrinkwrapped products.

High. The ability to bury


malware within other software
will become a dangerous trend
that will lead to improved
spyware software and increase
the need for software and
application security tools at
software development and
deployment. It will also
increase the need for intrusion
prevention software that
enforces application execution.
Although great for the security
market, it could have a
dampening impact on software
in general. It will become more
difficult to segment what is
pure security software, what is
inherent in a security
appliance, and what is
delivered as a software
service. This has considerable
impact on licensing and
maintenance and may shift
some traditional operating
system revenue over to pure
software appliance form
factors.

Corporate and commercial


users will be drawn toward
enterprise Linux distributions
because of their long life cycle,

see continued growth, but with
low ASPs compared with other

Launch of Windows
Vista and Windows
Server 2008

Windows Vista's launch in


January 2007 caused
consumers to begin purchasing
Windows Vista on new PCs
since that is what OEMs now
sell. As expected, we are seeing
corporate adoption following the
tradition of moving slowly at first,
as application compatibility
testing, compliance testing, IT
and end-user training, and
having a critical mass of
Windows Vistaready machines
installed are addressed.
Windows Server 2008, expected
during the first half of 2008, will
be adopted on a timeline
established by corporate IT
practices and won't likely gain
full speed until 2009.

Moderate. Over the longer


term, it will be "business as
usual" for the Windows product
shipments. Windows Vista
caused no significant long-term
acceleration, and we expect no
significant "bump" of
acquisitions or deployment
immediately following the
launch of Windows Server
2008.

We believe that 64-bit


computing will remain largely
untapped among client devices,
despite a dramatic transition
over to 64-bit hardware over the
next two years. Application
compatibility will be the largest
impediment, although for the
minority of applications that
need memory, disk access, or
large database access, 64-bit
will bring benefit. On servers,
customers will begin to adopt
64-bit versions of Windows and
Linux where workloads and
applications are compatible, but
only when the customers are
convinced that supporting both
32-bit and 64-bit versions of the
same operating systems creates
no significant new overhead.
Windows Server 2008
(expected 1H08) will be an
important catalyst to move
Microsoft server users over to
64-bit operating systems.

High. Over the longer term,


most systems will move to 64bit operating systems and
applications, but this is a very
long-term transition that will
likely be absorbed as part of
other migrations,
replacements, or
consolidations that take place
over the next 58 years.

Software
complexity

Advances in standards and


application infrastructure (such
as SOA), while making it easier
to build high-quality software,
will add considerably to the
complexity of resultant
applications.

High. Complexity will work to


the advantage of a vendor that
provides an application or tools
designed to reduce complexity.
However, indiscriminant and
uncoordinated development of
standards can also have the
opposite effect. Complexity will
also work to the advantage of
large vendors that provide a
single "integrated" software
stack and is one of the key
forces driving industry
consolidation.

Service-oriented
architecture

SOA is an evolving software


and systems architectural style
that takes advantage of
distributed, networked, and
modularized capabilities that
can be more discretely and
flexibly applied to specific
requirements. In the long term,
such capabilities will pave the
way for new and innovative
solutions to emerge.

Moderate. Many enterprises


and vendors are focusing their
next generation of systems to
be built following SOA
constructs and are actively
building out the infrastructure
and fundamental cadre of
services to support its use.
However, for most
organizations, it will take years
to develop and hone these
environments. Leading-edge
institutions and those with ITcentric models have been first
out of the gate to take
advantage of SOA, while the
mainstream will slowly adopt
certain elements and
applications that are founded
on SOA as these are
packaged and introduced to
market in more of a solution
orientation. In the short- to
midterm, organizations are and
will be replacing aging systems
with newer SOA-based
solutions, thus driving some
increases in spending for
specific markets; meanwhile, in
the mid- to long term, the
effects of consolidation of core
capabilities and the flexibility in
which to source specific
elements incrementally will
potentially depress overall IT
spending in this particular
market.

Standards

Standards provide recognition


and approval of specifications
regarding data and/or process.
Standards will accelerate the
use of technology.

High. Standards have the


potential to affect a high
degree of industry change.
While standards curtail
competition pertaining directly
to the standard, they also
foster competition in areas
derivative to the standard.
While standards are largely
perceived to be a good thing,
the indiscriminant creation of
standards could lead to
inconsistency, thereby
undermining vendor credibility.

Moderate. Consolidation is
inevitable, but it is unclear if
consolidation is good or bad.
Consolidation is good because
it encourages broad-based
vertical or horizontal
integration, which tends to
reduce perceived developer or
end-user complexity. However,
consolidation also can serve to
reduce competition and
therefore slow the pace of
evolutionary market change.
Consolidation is a relatively
new phenomenon in the
software industry, so while its
effects are not yet well
understood, industry change
appears to be accelerating and
innovation continues.

Application
infrastructure

Applications will increasingly be


based on runtime
infrastructures. This application
infrastructure will expand to
embrace all aspects of
application development,
operations, and support.

High. Although RDBMS


engines were the first clear
example of application
infrastructure, application
servers cemented this trend.
Application infrastructure now
exists at almost every level of
the "software stack" and is
increasingly finding its way into
hardware. While the existence
of application infrastructure
simplifies development, it also
affords vendors another
technique to facilitate lock-in.
However, the benefits of
application infrastructure far
outweigh any risks associated
with adoption.

$$$$%

High. An entire new range of


buyers are entering the
applications markets, and this
will fuel growth throughout the
forecast period. Vendors that
can excel at localization,
support on-demand versions of
their applications and even
hybrid solutions (integration
on-demand and on-premise),
plus can update their software
to include regional/country
options regarding culture and
regulatory/compliance features
(beyond basic localization) will
see an increase in sales
volumes.

Global adoption of

2008 IDC

The rapid rise of technology


adoption in developing nations
is proceeding at a rate far
quicker than most anticipated.
Prices, while not what have
historically been paid in
developed nations, have
increased as the developing
nations become more cognizant
of the need to protect against
piracy and as corporate financial
results in those countries
improve.

Enterprise
workplace

Portal, collaboration and content


technologies will be applied in
creative new ways to render
"composite" applications, but
more oriented toward specific
user or user role needs rather
than as a prepackaged set of
business processes.

High. The enterprise


workplace will offer a quick
route to composite
applications, which will be
viewed by buyers as superior
solution alternatives to oldfashioned "module"
applications. The flexibility of
"business integration on the
glass" will drive buyers to
switch budgets toward these
types of efforts. Though
underlying module prices may
decrease (since users are only
using pieces of those
modules), the overall spend
should increase and drive
interest in this new class of
offerings.

corporate demand for

Internet

Internet adoption is still going


strong, especially in emerging
economies. In the next four
years, 700 million new users will
come online and commerce will
double. By the end of 2012,
80% of Internet users will
access the Internet using mobile
devices at least some of the
time, and 27% of all households
will have broadband access to
the Internet. As people spend
more time online actively
participating in Web 2.0
technologies such as rich user
interfaces based on Ajax and
Flash, social networking and
tagging, blogs and wikis, Web
mashups, and on-demand
services in general, information
workers will start expecting
Enterprise 2.0 applications in
the workplace that focus on
providing easy-to-use and
many-to-many personalized
online experiences for creating,
publishing, locating, and sharing
information with colleagues,
customers, and partners.

Moderate. The upside is more


likely than the downside
because the conventional
wisdom is that the Internet
revolution is over. On the
contrary, less than 5% of total
commerce is conducted online.
Analysts and pundits may
underestimate the impact of
the Internet because the
"buzz" is gone. It will be an
enabler for new markets,
business models, and unified
user interfaces for accessing
applications and information.

Users will obtain, through


volume channels, tools that offer
commodity, platform-specific,
and system management
functionality at no or very low
cost.

Moderate. Pricing pressure


and margin opportunity will
increase; the required
functionality for system
management products will rise
and potentially demand more
R&D budget from system
managementcentric vendors.

Vertical
specialization by
large vendors

Many large applications vendors


that play in the "horizontal"
markets have begun to add
industry-specific offerings,
through organic development
and/or acquisition, to their
product lines.

Moderate. This will raise the


table stakes for industryspecific best-of-breed vendors
to differentiate themselves. In
addition, larger vendors can
put pricing pressure on small
vendors by offering deals
involving horizontal
applications, industry-specific
applications, and
infrastructure. This should shift
revenue to larger vendors,
albeit at lower prices, and
augment overall large vendor
market share but slow overall
market growth.

$$$%%

Moderate. OSS today is


having its biggest impact on
mature markets where there is
little product differentiation and
product innovation has slowed
significantly or ceased. OSS is
an accelerator of technology
use but inhibitor to price. OSS
creates a downward pressure
on prices where competing
products are not well
differentiated. The largest
vendors are seeking to cast
OSS as "starter kits" with
limited functionality that
primarily serve as "on ramps"
into their high-priced products.
OSS today provides an
important glimpse into how
software vendors will build
value more around relationship
and less around product.

On-demand
applications

The software industry is going


through a major transformation,
from basic architecture
(software as a service) and the
way software is written
(composite applications) to the
way software is delivered
(software as services) and even
funded (advertising based). IDC
assumes that this
transformation will take a
decade but that it will, when
done, allow for much faster and
more dynamic delivery of
software functionality. Vendors
offering infrastructureless
applications, aka "on demand,"
will continue to garner share
from license-only-oriented
vendors, and this phenomena
will spread to other applications
beyond, for example, Web
conferencing and sales
automation.

Moderate. On-demand
application specialists will force
license-only suppliers to
rethink their product delivery
and licensing strategies and
change their delivery to include
on-demand and offer new
licensing options. Most
application providers already
offer "hosted" choices, so that
is not a major impact. Though
overall, on demand may
decrease prices at the outset
of a new application sale, over
the long run, it is not clear that
vendors will recognize lower
revenue, and the on-demand
trends will reach new buyer
audiences that could not afford
classic license applications.

Impact

The concept of saturation is a


tricky one in the context of ICT.
Markets that seem saturated
can be "unsaturated" by new
price thresholds or new
functionalities that spur faster
replacement or bring new users
into the market. Thus IDC
assumes that while all markets
have a fixed number of potential
adopters (people or companies),
there is usually a price, feature,
or solution that can drive
additional spending. Also, with
IT generally less than 3% of an
enterprise's expenses (or a
country's GDP), there is
tremendous opportunity to turn
internal spending on staff or
business processes into
external spending on ICT
products and services. IDC
assumes that market saturation
will be a moving target that
varies by submarket but, in
almost all cases, can be
countered.

Moderate. There will be a


general increase in the amount
of research and marketing
devoted to segmentation; there
will also be potential
organizational disruption as
vendors realign to better
approach these segments.

ICT buyers have switched from


optimistic to pessimistic, as
evidenced by IDC's 2007
FutureScan Surveys. There
seems to be no irrational
sentiment against ICT, as there
was several years ago, but
buyers are adjusting to
economic reality.

Moderate. ICT buyer


pessimism could affect
spending many markets.

There will be no major changes


affecting IT spending; however,
we expect to see the importance
of the ecosystem increasing.
This is the result of the
increasing need of customers
for solutions that integrate point
products and services across
vendors, as well as the need for
more vertical-specific solutions.
Additional impetus will come
from customer peer
relationships in growing
communities and microvertical
channels (e.g., salesforce.com's
AppExchange).

Moderate. Vendors will need


to examine traditional supplier
channel relationships and
become more scientific about
ecosystem decisions. IDC
assumes many will delay
action until more drastic
rethinking is called for. The
result in the near term could
slow market spending for some
customer segments (e.g.,
enterprise) while boosting
others (e.g., SMB).

Forecast for the Worldwide Software Market


Table 16 presents IDC's projections for growth in the worldwide software market for
20082012 by primary market and geographic region. As shown in Figure 5, IDC
expects steady growth in each of the primary markets throughout the forecast period,
with a 20072012 CAGR of 7.7%. Figure 6 shows that IDC expects all three
geographic regions will contribute to the growth of worldwide software market
revenue.
Tables 1719 highlight shifts in the revenue distribution by operating environment
over the forecast period in each of the three primary markets. For packaged software
as a whole, 32-bit and 64-bit Windows will continue as the leading operating
environment, with a CAGR of 10.0% from 2007 to 2012, and reach $218.5 billion in
revenue and a 57.3% market share by the end of the forecast period. Unix growth will
continue to slow, with a CAGR of 4.7%, but will still remain solidly in second place,
with a 22.1% market share in 2012 (down from 25.4% in 2007). Mainframe revenue is
projected to continue to slowly decline over the forecast period (CAGR of -1.3%), and
market share will decline to 6.0% by 2012 from 9.3% in 2007. Linux and other open
source will continue to experience the largest growth, with a CAGR of 29.4%. By
2012, open source operating environments will attain a 8.9% market share (up from
3.6% in 2007).

Market Context
A five-year forecast (20072011) was last published for the worldwide packaged
software market in Worldwide Software 20072011 Forecast Summary (IDC
#207829, July 2007). Table 20 compares the forecast published in that document with
the current forecast in terms of regional and worldwide revenue and worldwide annual
growth rates. Figure 7 displays the same data in graphical form.
Overall, 2007 turned out to be a better year (measured in U.S. dollars) than we
projected a year ago, in part due to currency exchange rates. This is particularly
evident in EMEA because of the strength of the euro versus the U.S. dollar.

Appendix A: Worldwide Software Market


Sizing and Forecast Methodology
The IDC software market sizing and forecasts are presented in terms of packaged
software revenue. IDC uses the term packaged software to distinguish commercially
available software from custom software, not to imply that the software must be
shrink-wrapped or otherwise provided via physical media. Packaged software is
programs or codesets of any type commercially available through sale, lease, rental,
or as a service. Packaged software revenue typically includes fees for initial and
continued right-to-use packaged software licenses. These fees may include, as part
of the license contract, access to product support and/or other services that are
inseparable from the right-to-use license fee structure, or this support may be priced
separately. Upgrades may be included in the continuing right of use or may be priced
separately. All of the above are counted by IDC as packaged software revenue.
Packaged software revenue excludes service revenue derived from training,
consulting, and system integration that is separate (or unbundled) from the right-touse license but does include the implicit value of software included in a service that
offers software functionality by a different pricing scheme. It is the total packaged
software revenue that is further allocated to markets, geographic areas, and operating
environments.
The market forecast and analysis methodology incorporates information from five
different but interrelated sources, as follows:
! Reported and observed trends and financial activity. This study incorporates
reported and observed trends and financial activity in 2007 as of the end of April
2008, including reported revenue data for public companies trading on North
American stock exchanges (full-calendar-year 2007 data in nearly all cases).
! IDC's Software Census interviews. IDC interviews all significant market
participants to determine product revenue, revenue demographics, pricing, and
other relevant information.
! Product briefings, press releases, and other publicly available information.
IDC's software analysts around the world meet with hundreds of software
vendors each year. These briefings provide an opportunity to review current and
future business and product strategies, revenue, shipments, customer bases,
target markets, and other key product and competitive information.
! Vendor financial statements and related filings. Although many software
vendors are privately held and choose to limit financial disclosures, information
from publicly held companies provides a significant benchmark for assessing
informal market estimates from private companies. IDC also builds detailed
information related to private companies through in-depth analyst relationships
and maintains an extensive library of financial and corporate information focused
on the IT industry. We further maintain detailed revenue by product area models
on more than 1,000 worldwide vendors.

#213259

2008 IDC

! IDC demand-side research. This includes thousands of interviews with


business users of software solutions annually and provides a powerful fifth
perspective for assessing competitive performance and market dynamics. IDC's
user strategy databases offer a compelling and consistent time-series view of
industry trends and developments. Direct conversations with technology buyers
provide an invaluable complement to the broader survey-based results.
Ultimately, the data presented in this study represents IDC's best estimates based on
the above data sources as well as reported and observed activity by vendors and
further modeling of data that we believe to be true to fill in any information gaps.
The data in this study is derived from all the above sources and entered into the
Software Market Forecaster (SMF) database, which is then updated on a continuous
basis as new information regarding software vendor revenues becomes available. For
this reason, the reader should note carefully the "as of" date in the Methodology
discussion within the "In This Study" section, near the beginning of this study,
whenever making comparisons between the data in this study and the data in any
other software revenue study.

Historical Market Values


Historical market values presented here are based on the market taxonomies and
current U.S. dollar exchange rates existing at the time the data was originally
published. For markets other than the United States, these as-published values are
based on current dollar exchange rates (i.e., a different rate for each year). This
means that historical market growth includes fluctuations in exchange rates, which
can be significant.
Because many individual countries contribute to the regional totals, it is difficult to
give precise differences between current and constant currency growth in this study.
However, the scale of the difference can be understood from the movement of the
U.S. dollar against major regional currencies. Customers should consider multiplying
regional historical market values for each year in this study by the change in value of
the U.S. dollar against representative currencies in each region (e.g., the euro in
EMEA and the Japanese yen in Asia/Pacific; see Table 21). This will provide a better
approximation of local market growth in each region. For instance, the value in U.S.
dollars of a market in 2006 in EMEA could be adjusted upward by 9% (reducing the
20062007 growth), while that in Asia/Pacific could be lowered by 1% (increasing the
20062007 growth).
Please refer to IDC's regional research studies containing historical forecast
information for multiple countries for more accurate regional market growth in local
currency constant values. Note that this discussion applies only to historical market
values, not forecast values, which are always presented in constant dollars, because
we do not forecast exchange rates.

Appendix B: Worldwide Software Market


Forecast Summary Glossary
IDC's software research programs maintain a centralized database that includes
worldwide total packaged software revenue for more than 1,000 software vendors.
We do not contend that this is an exhaustive list of software providers; in fact, we
believe there are more than 10,000 such suppliers. However, our database is
designed to support very precise forecasting, and the suppliers in the database
represent a majority of the software market's revenue overall and a majority of the
revenue in each of the various segmentations it supports. The revenue is allocated to
functional market segments, geographic areas, revenue types, industries, channels,
and operating environments. The functional software markets defined by the
taxonomy represent a collectively exhaustive and mutually exclusive view of the
worldwide software marketplace.
IDC's software market taxonomy is the basis for the relational multidimensional
schema of the IDC Software Market Forecaster research database. The information
from this continually updated database is used by IDC's software Continuous
Intelligence Services (CISs) (i.e., our subscription research services) to generate
consistent packaged software market sizing and forecasts. In addition, the Worldwide
Software Market Forecaster pivot table subscription products offer a comprehensive
view of information included in the research database.
Total packaged software revenue is defined as license revenue plus maintenance
revenue plus subscription and other software revenue. It is primarily the total
packaged software revenue that is further allocated to markets, geographic areas,
and operating environments. In addition to total packaged software revenue, IDC
collects software license revenue, software maintenance revenue, subscription- and
other software-related revenue, and total company revenue:

170

#213259

2008 IDC

! License revenue includes revenue collected for software licenses, either limited
term (lease) or perpetual, that include licenses for new installations of a software
product, licenses for additional software options, changes to existing licenses
permitting more users or more computer system resources to be used by the
licensed software (based, of course, on the original license agreement); such
changes are often necessitated by server upgrades or staff increases or
conversions of licenses that result in incremental additional revenue such as
conversions from a fixed number of users or processors to a site or enterprise
license.
License revenue does not include license maintenance revenue, which typically
includes fees covering version upgrades, the automatic delivery of bug fixes and
patches, and basic telephone support, all of which are normally delivered during
a fixed, renewable term of service.
! Maintenance revenue consists of fees charged for continuous improvement of
the software by repairing known faults and errors and/or enhancing and updating
the product, as well as for technical support.
! Subscription/other software revenue consists of fees to use software products
and to receive maintenance and support for those software products for a limited
period of time. Subscriptions consist of bundled software and services where the
fair value of the license fee is not separately determinable from
maintenance/support. This category also includes software lease or rental
revenue (often, but not exclusively, applied to mainframe software).

What Is Packaged Software?


How does IDC identify the companies it measures and the resulting value of the
markets? Our objective is to define companies and markets that are relevant for
market research purposes not for legal or accounting purposes nor simply for
publishing historic lists. Clearly, many companies have software and other types of
business units; this taxonomy is not about deciding on the relative strengths of these
business units and applying a single label to the entire company.
The question therefore is, When does a company market and deploy software that
should be counted as such for market research purposes?
IDC uses the term packaged software to distinguish commercially available software
from custom software, not to imply that the software must be shrink-wrapped or
otherwise provided via physical media. Packaged software is programs or codesets of
any type commercially available through sale, lease, or rental, or as a service.
Packaged software revenue typically includes fees for initial and continued right-touse packaged software licenses. These fees may include, as part of the license
contract, access to product support and/or other services that are inseparable from
the right-to-use license fee structure, or this support may be priced separately.
Upgrades may be included in the continuing right of use or may be priced separately.
All of the above are counted by IDC as packaged software revenue.

2008 IDC

#213259

171

Packaged software revenue excludes service revenue derived from training,


consulting, and systems integration that is separate (or unbundled) from the right-touse license but does include the implicit value of software included in a service that
offers software functionality by a different pricing scheme (as described directly below
in more detail).
Increasingly, packaged software is also being marketed and deployed on a
subscription and transaction basis, as well as via other arrangements (e.g., for "free"
with the packaged software's "owner" taking a percentage of the revenue enabled by
the software as implicit "product" revenue), some of which do not involve a license.
Software has also long been available for lease or rent, typically on mainframes.
Furthermore, we must not be limited by accounting directives (such as those released
by AICPA and FASB) because this would neglect to count large segments of software
markets in a way that accurately reflects market dynamics and future opportunity.
IDC's Software Market Forecaster research database includes revenue from a
company if the company competes in a packaged software market defined in the
taxonomy. From the market research standpoint, this is the most important question.
Software revenue is defined in terms of two types of offerings from the viewpoint of
the customer:
! The market for software code of a given functionality sold as such, typically via a
perpetual license
! The market for software code bundled and marketed in another way (e.g., an
application service) that competes with perpetually licensed software products
To be classified as packaged software revenue attributed to a company in the
Software Market Forecaster research database, all of the following have to be true:
! Ownership of intellectual property. Application service providers (ASPs) that
do not own the software code are not software vendors but channels for software
vendors. However, some vendors own the code and also provide an ASP
offering. In this case, IDC estimates a value for the software provided in that
manner. However, in the case of packaged open source software (where there is
no "owner" of the intellectual property), revenue is attributed to the distributor.
! Product is replicated. Software companies assemble a package of code from
components and "sell" multiple copies in a one-to-many business model. The
software product is replicated to support that model. Even though it may be
customized as it is being installed, when the customization capability is an
attribute built into the code, it is still considered replicated. Value-added resellers
(VARs) do customization to packaged software, often on a one-to-one basis. In
this case, VARs are a channel for the software. When a company takes code and
adds its own changes and sells the resulting package substantially as changed to
many customers, it is in turn an ISV that resells or OEMs components and
adds value. (In these cases, IDC estimates the pass-through revenue and
deducts it from the reseller and attributes it to the original owner of the intellectual
property so as not to double count revenue and artificially inflate the size of the
software market.)

172

#213259

2008 IDC

! Competitive domain includes packaged software companies that license


intellectual property rights to functionally similar software code. There are
companies that offer to their customers packaged software functionality not via a
right-to-use license but as a "service" that is wholly or partially based on software
functionality. In this case, the question becomes, Does the company compete
with packaged software companies that provide the same functionality? If so, a
significant part of the basis of competition is the functionality of the software.
Thus, there is a software component of the service company's revenue stream,
and the value of the software must be "implicitly derived" or "attributed" and
subtracted from the commingled revenue stream. Counting becomes difficult if
the commingled product never has had a history of standalone software sales,
and thus there is no requirement (from accounting rules) for calling out the
revenue on the income statement. This accounting rule does not change the
market dynamics as far as the customer is concerned, services with the same
functionality are available as substitutes for licensed software products, and IDC
must account for this in our estimate of the size of the software market. This
procedure has been used by IDC in the operating system market for many years
when operating system revenue is bundled with hardware platforms. The
operating system is an important part of the value of the competitive hardware
offering. Software vendors sometimes do not offer the same functionality in
standalone form.

General Functional Market Definitions


! The worldwide software market includes all packaged software revenue across
all functional markets or market aggregations.
! Primary software markets are the aggregation of the functional markets for
applications, AD&D, and system infrastructure. The three primary markets
together make up the worldwide software market.
! Secondary software markets are 19 important aggregations that make up IDC's
packaged software market taxonomy. These secondary markets are consumer
applications, collaborative applications, content applications, enterprise resource
management (ERM) applications, supply chain management (SCM) applications,
operations and manufacturing applications, engineering applications, customer
relationship management (CRM) applications, information and data management
software, application development software, quality and life-cycle tools,
application server middleware, integration and process automation middleware,
other development tools, data access, analysis and delivery software, system
and network management software, security, storage software, and system
software. These markets map into the three primary markets and collectively
equate to the worldwide software market.
! Functional markets are the focal point of IDC's analysis. IDC defines 81
individual functional markets for which it analyzes revenue by vendor, geography,
and operating environment. Functional markets also provide the foundation and
revenue base for the generation of competitive markets.

2008 IDC

#213259

173

! Submarkets describe one or more discrete functional areas within a specific


market. Although submarket-level data may be reported in selected IDC studies,
this level of detail is not recorded in the Software Market Forecaster database.

Applications Market Definitions


Packaged application software includes consumer, commercial, industrial, and
technical programs and codesets designed to automate specific sets of business
processes in an industry or business function, to make groups or individuals in
organizations more productive, or to support entertainment, education, or data
processing in personal activity. The packaged application market includes the
consumer, collaboration, content, and enterprise applications subsegments; the
enterprise applications market, in turn, is made up of the enterprise resource
management, supply chain management, operations and manufacturing, engineering,
and CRM applications markets.
Consumer Applications

Consumer applications are software products for recreation, education, and/or


personal productivity enhancement.
Consumer Software

The consumer software market includes home education/edutainment products sold


to homes for specific educational purposes (for either adults or children) or reference
(e.g., dictionaries and encyclopedias); games and entertainment (sports,
adventure/role playing, arcade/action, strategy, and family entertainment
applications); and home productivity that covers the software categories of home
creativity, including all help, how-to, and lifestyle applications (e.g., cookbooks);
personal productivity products, including resume writers, standalone calendars,
expense records, will makers, and family-tree makers; and personal finance and tax
preparation programs.
Note: IDC does not provide detailed functional analysis of the consumer applications
market but tracks related revenue to provide a holistic view of the industry because

Application Development and Deployment Market Definitions


Information and Data Management Software

Information and data management software includes products that manage a


common set of defined data that is kept in one or more databases (structures of
managed data shared by multiple application programs) and is driven by data
definitions and rules, whether this involves single databases accessed directly by
applications or distributed databases accessed by multiple applications in multiple
locations. The distinguishing characteristic of all information and data management

2008 IDC

#213259

189

software products is that they use definitions of data structure and behavior along
with rules governing their integrity, validity, security and, in some cases, alternative
formats to manage the storage, movement, and manipulation of data kept in
databases.
Relational Database Management Systems

The relational database management system (RDBMS) market includes multiuser


DBMSs that are primarily organized according to the relational paradigm and that use
SQL as the foundational language for data definition and access. Also included are
RDBMSs that have been extended to support embedded tables or other nonrelational
enhancements or to include extended attribute types (such as graphical, geospatial,
and audio), object-oriented formalisms (such as data encapsulation), or direct support
for XML data.
Nonrelational Database Management Systems

Nonrelational database management systems (NDBMS) are those are not based on
the relational paradigm. They use a variety of other approaches to the organization,
management, storage, and retrieval of data. Types of nonrelational DBMSs are as
follows:
! The pre- and postrelational DBMS market includes multiuser DBMSs that are
accessed using explicit navigation of the structure by the problem program and
are typically organized using either the CODASYL or a proprietary structure. Listoriented, hierarchical, b-tree indexed, network, and inverted list are examples of
organizations included in this category.
! Object-oriented DBMSs are designed to provide data storage and support
services using an object-oriented architecture. Object DBMSs support the basic
features of object-oriented development, including inheritance, polymorphism,
encapsulation, and state.
! The XML database management systems market includes native XML
database management systems, which decompose XML documents into data
structures based on their tag structures and store them in an internal data
storage facility that has been optimized for XML tag-based retrieval. Such
facilities typically include the capability to convert XML documents into XML
documents of other types, driven by XSL or other mapping specifications. This
market also includes XML data search and retrieval facilities that are driven by
XML schemas. It does not include XML-based end-user query tools, access
integration middleware, or analytic applications that may happen to use XMLbased access protocols. This market does not include software that simply
serves as a relay or remote connection facility between programs and XML files.
It also does not include software that has as its sole or principal purpose the
ability to provide online XML content services for end users.

190

#213259

2008 IDC

! End-user DBMSs are single-user, database-centric solutions that reside on


desktop operating environments for use by knowledge workers. These tools
typically include a DBMS engine tightly integrated with a scripting language and
report writer, which provides a localized environment for data management and
analysis.
Database Development and Management Tools

Database development and management tools are used to develop, load, reload,
reorganize, recover, or otherwise manage and optimize databases, and to maintain
replica databases for either recovery, performance, or availability purposes. This
category also includes database-specific accelerators, SQL optimization tools, and
other database utilities. Types of database development and management tools
include:
! Database tuning and monitoring tools. Software used by DBAs to monitor the
performance of databases, detect problems in database operations, perform
routine change operations to the database, and improve database operation by
reallocating storage, reindexing the database, and so on. (Note that when
database monitoring software is incorporated in general system monitoring
products, its revenue is reported under performance management software.)
! SQL authoring tools. Software used by DBAs and developers to build efficient
SQL calls to access and manipulate data from within programs and reports
! SQL optimization and analysis tools. Software used by DBAs and developers
to correct defects in SQL and to improve SQL performance
! Database replication software. Software used for maintaining an exact copy of
a live database, typically for recoverability, high-availability, or nonstop
maintenance purposes
! Database archiving software. Software used to build and maintain archives of
databases, often allowing transparent access to archived data, preserving
original schema information about archived data and intelligence for selecting
referentially complete subsets of data for archiving (Such products also can be
used to create referentially complete subsets of databases for populating subset
or test databases as well.)
Data Integration and Access Software

Data integration and access software brings together data sets for use by other
software or for presentation to end users and also enables access of applications to
databases without requiring a direct API connection. The purpose of data integration
is to ensure the consistency of information where there is a logical overlap of the
information contents of two or more discrete systems. To achieve a total solution,
data integration software employs a wide range of technologies, including, but not
limited to, data profiling; data quality; extract, transform, and load (ETL); semantic
mediation; and associated metadata management. Data access is enabled by data
connectivity software (which includes data connectors and connectivity drivers, and
also federated data access software).

2008 IDC

#213259

191

Data integration software may be used in a wide variety of functions. The most
common is data warehousing, but other uses include enterprise information
integration, data replication, data movement, and data synchronization, to name a
few. Data integration may be deployed and executed as batch processes, typical for
data warehouses, or in near-real-time modes for data synchronization or dedicated
operational data stores. More challenging applications are integrating data from
disparate, distributed data sources, including flat files, relational databases, XML files,
and legacy applications, and the proprietary data sources associated with packaged
applications from vendors such as SAP and Oracle.
The data integration and access software market includes the following submarkets:
! Data movement software comprises two subgroups: ETL and database
synchronization (or real-time data movement) software. ETL software selectively
draws data from source databases, transforms it into a common format, merges
it according to rules governing possible collisions, and loads it into a target. This
software normally runs in batch but may also be invoked dynamically in what
vendors refer to as "real time" functionality. Such software actively moves data
among correspondent databases driven by metadata that defines
interrelationships among the data managed by those databases. The software
performs transformations, routes the data to the target, and inserts the data. It
normally either features a runtime environment or operates by generating the
program code that does the extracting, transforming, routing of the data, and
updating of the target.
! Data quality, profiling, and cleansing software includes products used to
identify errors or inconsistencies in data, to normalize data formats, to infer
update rules from changes in data, to match data entries with known values, and
for other activities involved in ensuring the validity and consistency of data on the
one hand, or schematic details of data not incorporated in the database catalog
on the other. Such activities are normally associated with data integration tasks
such as data merges and federated joins, but may also be used to monitor the
quality of data in the database.
! Data connectivity software is used to establish connections between users or
applications and databases without requiring an API or hard-coded database
interface. It includes ODBC and JDBC drivers and database adapters.
! Federated database software permits the access of multiple databases as if
they were one database. Most are read only, but some provide update
capabilities. Virtual database products are similar, but offer full schema
management coordinated with the source database schemas to create a
complete database environment that sits atop multiple physical databases.
! Data integration suites blend functionality from several of the submarkets listed
above and are offered as singly priced products or product suites. They generally
include data quality, data movement, transformation (a subset of ETL), and some
federated data access capability, along with design and management tools.

! Metadata definition and management software products are specifically


designed to model, capture, and maintain IT metadata that is associated with
application development or deployment. Standalone products in this category
have, as their main feature, the definition or management of metadata, which
may include graphical modeling capabilities, categorization and ontological
relationship mapping, search, metadata extraction from database catalogs or
other such sources, and code generation capability.
Application Development Software

The application development software markets include software, tools, and


development environments used by developers, business analysts, and other
professionals to create both Web-based and traditional applications. Third-generation
languages (3GLs), unified development environments, business rules engines,
model-driven development software, and Web site design and development tools are
included. Application development software also encompasses markets pertaining to
component-based development and includes the specific markets discussed in the
following sections.
Unified Development Environments

The unified development environment (UDE) market represents the convergence and
integration of interactive development environments with visual interfaces as well as
rapid application development tools and environments, higher-level languages
(including 4GLs), and component-based development (CBD). It also includes the
tools that help automate various aspects of developing applications from components
and within component framework environments.
The unified development environment market does not include tools whose primary
function is to support formalized modeling and business rules methodologies that
assist in generating application requirements, data definitions, and programming
specifications.
Unified development environments are those environments and/or tools that explicitly
use, integrate, or combine the abstract benefits of technologies and features from
4GL, RAD, CBD, and visual interfaces as part of the development environment. This
functional market includes:
! 4GL/RAD tools. 4GL/RAD tools are nonprocedural, higher-level language-based
tools used by professional programmers to build applications. To be considered a
4GL, a tool must provide a higher level of abstraction than a 3GL, afford
dictionary-based application development, and perform semantic consistency
checking.
! Legacy 4GL tools. Legacy 4GLs are defined as early abstracted development
environments that were marketed before the advent of visual programming
interfaces. Despite the antiquated nature of these environments, many remain in
use primarily to address mission-critical business functions.

2008 IDC

#213259

! Component-based development tools, including component construction


and assembly tools. Component-based development, construction, and
assembly tools are primarily used for the construction of software components
and/or the assembly of software components into larger components, services,
or applications.
! Component frameworks. Some companies package components in the form of
an open architecture component technology, often referred to as frameworks.
! Composite development and assembly platforms. Composite development
and assembly platforms include technologies that facilitate the construction of
composite services or composite applications that are highly standards
compliant. These technologies are characterized by a contextual configurationbased approach to development. Some of the tools designed to address mashup
configurations are included in this category.
Third-Generation Language Tools

The 3GL tools market includes both emerging and traditional programming
languages, such as Java, C++, COBOL, and FORTRAN. 3GL products include all
third-generation (object oriented and nonobject) procedural language tools, such as
edit, compile, and debug tools, that are used in the context of an integrated 3GL
development environment. C++, Java, and COBOL continue to be the primary 3GL
languages that developers use to produce business technology solutions.
Software Construction Components

Software construction components are functionally specific software subassemblies


and libraries sold apart from a programming development environment that may or
may not be designed for use with a specific programming development environment.
Examples include class libraries, frameworks, ActiveX controls, Java applets,
JavaBeans, Enterprise JavaBeans (EJBs), DLLs, and other forms of API-specific
libraries. Software components that fall into this category are intended to be used by
developers to assemble applications as opposed to fully functional applications that
are intended to run on their own.
Business Rules Management Systems

Business rules management systems (BRMSs) are defined as discrete systems that
define, manage, and execute conditional logic in concert with other IT processes and
actions. BRMSs are well known for their ability to automatically recognize the interrule
relationships that evolve as rules are added or changed, thereby eliminating the need
for the careful and complex rule sequencing and conflict resolution that would
otherwise be necessary.
Model-Driven Development Software

Model-driven development (MDD) software is an abstract software development


process that supports the understanding and definition of objects and relationships
rendered as a specification. MDD is centered around five design principles:
abstraction, model centricity, implementation independence, round-trip engineering,
and the automation of selected IT application and system artifacts. Model-driven

194

#213259

2008 IDC

development software encompasses four categories of modeling tools: data


modeling, process modeling (typically UML based), business process modeling (often
BPMN based), and simulation.
Web Site Design/Development Tools

Web site design and development tools provide Web site and Web page layout and
design, object integration for site and page development, and the tools needed to
create Web-based applications. Although HTML editing is often provided, tools in this
category typically offer visual abstraction away from HTML through WYSIWYG page
editors, animation and other rich media, JavaScript and/or VBScript features,
Asynchronous JavaScript and XML (AJAX), simple data integration, and deployment
scenarios.
Quality and Life-Cycle Tools

Quality and life-cycle tools support the process of software development and
deployment. This category includes the specific markets discussed in the following
sections.
Automated Software Quality Tools

Automated software quality (ASQ) tools support software unit testing, system testing,
or both; they also support software quality assurance. Functions such as test
specification, generation, execution, results analysis, and "bug tracking," as well as
test and QA management, are included in this category.
Software Configuration Management Tools

Software configuration management (SCM) tools are used by application


development organizations to provide software revision control and versioning
capabilities. More sophisticated functions such as process management, change
request tracking, requirements management, and distributed team development
support may also be included.
Application Server Middleware

Application server middleware is the foundation of modern applications, whether


custom developed or packaged. It is also the foundation for many types of software
infrastructure, such as portals, content management systems, or enterprise service
buses (ESBs).
This middleware executes application logic, mediates access to data sources, and
provides quality of service (QoS) to offer scalability, performance, reliability, and
security to applications. Applications built on modern application server middleware
are used over TCP/IP networks and are built using standard frameworks, such as
Java Enterprise Edition (JEE), .NET, and Spring. Older legacy application server
middleware is deployed on mainframes.
This class of middleware also offers ancillary capabilities associated with tooling for
Web application configuration as well as synchronizing content for Web applications.

2008 IDC

#213259

195

Application Server Software Platforms

Application server software platforms (ASSPs) are middleware that host application
logic and provide common services that allow the application to operate effectively.
Application servers provide a common programming model, such as JEE, .NET,
Spring, CICS, or CORBA, that developers use to build their application.
By using an application server, developers gain access to extensions that include
connectivity between the presentation layer, network, operating system, and
database as well as with other application servers as part of a distributed system. In
addition, the application server offers QoS for such things as transaction processing
reliability, throughput, scalability, security, and management.
ASSPs are the foundation of modern applications, whether custom developed or
packaged. They are also the foundation for many types of software infrastructure,
such as a portal, content management system, or certain brands of ESB.
ASSP revenue is not counted in the revenue model when it is embedded in other
software. For example, when a portal is built on an application server but sold as a
portal, the application server software portion is not counted in this market. However,
when an ERP is purchased separately from the application server required to make it
run, the ASSP revenue is counted.
Where ASSP is part of a multipurpose product, such as Microsoft Windows Server
2003, and we can determine what portion of the software is used as an ASSP, we will
include that portion in ASSP revenue.
Note on virtual application server appliances: ASSPs have included the type of
virtualization associated with clustering for several years, where several application
servers are managed as if they were one. In addition, the opposite type of
virtualization is also emerging, where one server can run multiple instances of an
application server. This is similar to the virtual server paradigm popularized by
VMware. A variety of Linux-Apache-MySQL-PHP (LAMP) stack software appliances
run on top of VMware's hypervisor. In addition, BEA offers its WebLogic Virtual
Edition and Liquid VM as a virtual application server appliance.
Transaction Processing Monitors

Transaction processing monitors (TPMs) mediate and optimize transaction


processing between clients and a mainframe database. TPMs have evolved to the
point where they currently can act as application servers for legacy mainframe and
client-server applications.
Other Application Server Middleware

Other application server middleware includes application server middleware


categories not yet large enough to be considered a standalone market.
Extreme transaction processing (XTP) is an emerging software category that
improves the performance of clusters of application servers through the use of
virtualization, in-memory caching, transaction shaping, service-level monitoring, and
provisioning.

Integration and Process Automation Middleware

The integration and process automation middleware markets include tools used by
developers, business analysts, and administrators to automate processes, create and
deploy process-centric applications, integrate applications, exchange data between
enterprises, and monitor the business and process performance of these applications
and automated processes.
This middleware is deployed on premise as software implemented on servers, in
appliances, and as hosted offerings fitting into the software-as-a-service (SaaS)
model.
In the IDC taxonomy, there are four specific types of integration and process
automation middleware, along with an "other" category that includes legacy software
and integration-related middleware not yet large enough to be categorized in a
standalone market:
! Business-to-business (B2B) middleware
! Enterprise service bus and connectivity middleware
! Event-driven middleware
! Process automation middleware
! Other integration and process automation middleware
Business-to-Business Middleware

B2B middleware consists of software and services used to receive, route, and convert
standards-based structured inter-enterprise files and messages related to
transactions. In more detail:
! B2B gateway middleware is software deployed on premise used to automate
and monitor the inter-enterprise exchange of data. At the heart of these platforms
are conversion, translation, and data exchangerelated orchestration capabilities.
Additional features include:
#

More generalized process automation

Receipt and delivery of messages

Connectivity software

Business activity monitoring

Reporting

Development environment

There are strong similarities between B2B gateway platforms and other types of
integration middleware. However, the strength of these platforms is in the
embedded support of common standard industry models for electronic message

2008 IDC

#213259

197

exchange, such as electronic data interchange (EDI). In addition, they are


optimized to operate at the edge between two or more enterprises, including the
ability to send acknowledgements to senders once a message is received.
! EDI/VANs and B2B services are secure, private networks that receive, store,
and forward structured inter-enterprise messages related to transactions. These
services include customizable hosted solutions and SaaS offerings. Many of the
vendors in this category also offer end-to-end managed services.
Although EDI/VANs predominantly support industries and message standards
associated with the supply chain and EDI standards, B2B services include value
chains in general, in particular the financial value chain using SWIFT standards.
Beyond reliable, secure delivery of messages, features include protocol
conversion, message and file translation, monitoring, exception reporting, paperto-digital conversion, and partner self-service, including Web forms for submitting
transactions and documents and self-testing capabilities.
Enterprise Service Bus and Connectivity Middleware

Enterprise service bus (ESB) and connectivity middleware are server software or
appliances installed on premise inside a datacenter to integrate applications:
! Enterprise service bus middleware was created to support application
integration for applications built on a standards-based service-oriented
architecture (SOA). It operates in request-response and event-driven paradigms.
Under the more common request-response model, ESBs receive service
consumption requests, route the requests to the correct service provider,
transform the requests to a format compatible with the service provider, wait for
the results, and deliver them back to the service consumer.
In an event-driven model, ESBs receive an event, transform it, and forward it
based on routing instructions managed within the ESB.
There are many types of ESBs in the market, with orientations based on the
preexisting middleware that was used as the basis for the ESB. In addition, there
are some ESBs that were built from the ground up to provide services-oriented
routing and transformation capabilities.
! Connectivity middleware is installed on end systems to send and receive data
and instructions directly from other systems and via middleware. Depending on
how they are deployed, connectivity middleware adapters and sensors can
perform transformations prior to delivering the data back to the targeted system
or can transfer as is.
There are different deployment paradigms for the adapters. They can fetch or
deliver data on request. They can be set up to look for new data on a scheduled
basis. They also can support an event model in which a data change is
automatically captured by an adapter, which generates a message that is
published to message-oriented middleware (MOM).

198

#213259

2008 IDC

Most deployment platform vendors have their own collection of standard or


common adapters. They tend to be bundled into the price of platform software
and, therefore, are not counted in this category. This category includes the
standalone purchase of connectivity middleware.
Event-Driven Middleware

Event-driven middleware is used to detect events and automatically pass them to


applications, systems, and people. An event is a data or application change of state.
The technologies that make up event-driven middleware are key components of an
event-driven infrastructure, which is implemented to:
! Predict and detect problems or opportunities at the earliest possible moment they
are identifiable
! Support automated processes to reduce cycle times and remove waste, errors,
and redundancy from an enterprise's operations
! Improve the scalability and processing speeds of applications and application
infrastructure.
Event-driven middleware consists of the following three types of software: messageoriented middleware (MOM), complex event processing (CEP) software, and
business activity monitoring (BAM).
In essence, MOM can be considered the nervous system that listens for stimuli and
informs the brain. CEP is the brain, which contains the short-term memory and
executive decision-making ability to send instructions through the nervous system to
the appropriate parts of the body. BAM is the eyes of an event-driven infrastructure.
In more detail:
! Business activity monitoring informs users about the current status of areas in
which they are interested and notifies them when thresholds are crossed that
warrant attention. BAM typically is deployed as a continuously updated
dashboard of key performance indicators (KPIs) that describe the metrics that
are important to an individual user. There are a variety of graphical displays in
which the KPIs are embedded, including standard graphs, heat maps, and
process model views. There are also graphical indicators of current performance.
While BAM dashboards are typically presented in a portal, notification of out-ofbounds performance is sent out via email. In some cases, vendors are taking
KPIs and their associated graphical representations and making them available
as gadgets that can be displayed in a mashup.
BAM is implemented in many scenarios. In this case, we count BAM products
sold as a standalone offering, which excludes the embedded BAM sold as part of
a BPM suite.

2008 IDC

#213259

199

! Complex event processing middleware manages descriptions of conditions


and their state, correlates new events to the conditions, and tests for matches.
Once matched, a new event is created and fired off to other systems listening for
the event. CEP is used primarily as infrastructure for temporal (time) and spatial
(location) applications.
A condition describes the relationship of two or more events to each other. These
can be simple, such as calculating the impact of a change in stock price over a
set time window to see whether it meets a certain threshold, or complicated, such
as calculating the impact of a flight delay on all of the systems affected by that
delay.
CEP products are based on different technologies, with the three most common
being:
#

Continuous query software that automatically runs SQL or SQL-like queries


upon the receipt of new data

Rules engines that apply new data to all the rules and rule relationships

Software that allows users to model the condition

! When a relevant event occurs, message-oriented middleware creates a


structured message containing the data of the event, the time the event was
created, and metadata about the event. MOM delivers the message in the
following paradigms:
#

Point to point, where one sending system publishes a message directly to a


receiving system for processing

To a queue, where the message can be picked up for processing by any


authorized system

Publish and subscribe, which broadcasts messages without concern for


whether the event is actually received by any system

In the latter two paradigms, each message includes metadata that describes the
topic or subject of the message. Subscribers listening for that topic receive all
messages that are broadcast out. When a system picks messages off of a
queue, it also looks for specific message types, based on the metadata.
MOM is also capable of transforming a message to a structure that is compatible
with the receiving system. Whether transformation is handled within MOM or by
other integration middleware, such as an ESB, is an architectural decision made
by the enterprise during system design.
Although many vendors offer commodity MOM based on the Java Message
Service (JMS) standard, the standalone offerings differentiate and compete on
low latency, reliability, and high throughput.

Process Automation Middleware

A process is the series of activities that accomplish work in a routine way. Process
automation middleware is used to define a process, model it, and automate the
movement of transactions through all of the necessary activities that make up the
process. Process automation middleware also manages the state of work being
performed within the process and identifies transactions that are not able to advance
through the process' workflow. These exceptions are then handled separately, either
through another structured process or through custom or nonautomated activities.
This middleware supports straight-through processing (STP), which is a method to
move transactions automatically from one system to the next without manual
involvement, rekeying, or input from people. STP examples include automated
payment processing or trade settlements.
Process automation middleware also automates people-oriented activities that require
manual steps or human decision making, such as loan approvals or bringing new
employees on board. In more detail:
! A business process management suite (BPMS) includes both a model-centric
development environment and a runtime server that include the following
capabilities:
#

Process modeling is a graphical environment to describe and document an


existing process or a new process. Although not all BPMSs support standard
process modeling, the emerging graphical standard to represent the process
is the Business Process Modeling Notation (BPMN).
In a BPMS, process modeling is central to the development environment.
Increasingly, the individual activities described in the process model have
presentation components, such as forms, and other properties associated to
them, and one activity is wired to another within the process modeling
environment.

Rules or decision services are used when there is a need to determine


where the transaction needs to go next for processing.

Process execution is runtime server software that executes the process


described in the model and maintains the state of the transaction as it
advances through the process' workflow. There are differences in how
BPMS products move from a model to the execution of a process as well as
differences in standards supported. Some interpret; others compile. Some
store a model in XML Process Definition Language (XPDL), while others
store as Business Process Execution Language (BPEL). Others do neither.

Process monitoring maintains and displays performance statistics about


how the process is running. The KPIs are automatically generated within the
system.

2008 IDC

#213259

201

Simulation uses production data, test data, or metrics embedded in the


model to run simulations to see how a process or change in process impacts
process, business, and system performance. Initially, the simulation may run
from assumptions built in the documentation of the model. Once a process is
put into production, there is the ability to test changes using production data.
Many vendors require the use of simulation to test a change made to a
process before it is put into production, particularly where authorized
business users make changes to the process.

Additional BPMS capabilities include:


! Task management features that either automatically or manually assign
work
! Forms, including wizards and offline and online capabilities
! Search, including the ability to find anything about work within a process
as well as identify experts
! Content management capabilities, including storage and retrieval of
documents
! Portal and collaboration features

! Standalone process servers have a development environment that describes


an orchestration or workflow as well as a process execution environment.
However, they do not have the full set of features offered by a BPMS vendor.
! Specialty straight-through-processing middleware includes many of the
components of a system-centric BPMS with embedded logic tied to specific
processes. It tends to be an event-driven, high-performance system created for
niche areas, such as financial payment systems.
Other Integration and Process Automation Middleware

This category contains includes software products and markets not yet large enough
to be covered in a standalone category. In addition, it includes some integration
categories that cross multiple markets. In more detail:
! Managed file transfer software provides secure, guaranteed high-speed
delivery of a file over a network. The file transfer can be from one enterprise to
another or within an enterprise, across datacenters or systems. This software
includes the free software that delivers files over file transfer protocol (FTP) and
commercial software that offers better security, reliability, and speeds.
Other Development Tools

Other Programmer Development Tools and Utilities

The other programmer development tools and utilities market includes standalone
edit, compile, and debug utilities; libraries; repositories; software reengineering and
transformation tools; standalone GUI builders; report writers used mainly by

202

#213259

2008 IDC

developers; AI and expert system builders; software development kits; code


browsers; graphics toolkits and data/file conversion aids; and program memory and
disk management. Additionally, this category includes remote procedure call (RPC)
middleware, which is built for an application-to-application interoperability model.
Applications make requests by shipping a direct call for the execution. (IDC does not
provide detailed functional analysis of this market.)
IDC does not analyze the other programmer development tools and utilities collection
of miscellaneous products as a separate market but does include the revenue from
this "market" in the overall revenue total for completeness of application development
and deployment market coverage.
Data Access, Analysis, and Delivery Software

Data access, analysis, and delivery products are end useroriented tools for ad hoc
data access, analysis, and reporting as well as production reporting. Products in this
category are most commonly used by information consumers or power users rather
than by professional programmers. Examples include query, reporting,
multidimensional analysis, and data mining and statistics tools. The data access,
analysis, and delivery markets are defined in the following sections.
End-User Query, Reporting, and Analysis

Query, reporting, and analysis software includes ad hoc query and multidimensional
analysis tools as well as dashboards and production reporting tools. Query and
reporting tools are designed specifically to support ad hoc data access and report
building by either IT or business users. This category does not include other
application development tools that may be used for building reports but are not
specifically designed for that purpose. Multidimensional analysis tools include both
online analytical processing (OLAP) servers and client-side analysis tools that provide
a data management environment used for modeling business problems and analyzing
business data. Packaged data marts, which are preconfigured software combining
data transformation, management, and access in a single package, usually with
business models, are also included in this functional market.
Advanced Analytics Software

Advanced analytics software includes data mining and statistical software (previously
called technical data analysis). It uses technologies such as neural networks, rule
induction, and clustering, among others, to discover relationships in data and make
predictions that are hidden, not apparent, or too complex to be extracted using query,
reporting, and multidimensional analysis software. This market also includes
technical, econometric, and other mathematics-specific software that provide libraries
of statistical algorithms and tests for analyzing data. Although statistics products vary
in sophistication, most provide base-level functions such as frequencies, crosstabulation, and chi square. This market also includes a specialized form of statistical
software focused on functional areas such as the industrial design of experiments,
clinical trial testing, exploratory data analysis, and high-volume and real-time
statistical analysis.

Spatial Information Management Software

Spatial information management software (also called geographic information system


[GIS]) includes tools for data entry/conversion (surveying/COGO, aerial photo
rectification, remote sensing, GPS, and others), mapping/spatial query, and business
analysis.

System Infrastructure Software Market Definitions


System infrastructure software is divided into four primary categories: system and
network management software, security, storage software, and system software.
These categories are discussed in the following sections.
System and Network Management Software

System and network management software is used to manage all the computing
resources for the end user, small business, workgroup, or enterprise, including
systems, applications, and the network infrastructure. This market does not include
storage management and other storage software. System and network management
software is further segmented into the categories discussed in the following sections.
Event Automation Tools

Event automation tools automate the response of the systems to nonscheduled


system and application events. Included are console automation products, global
event management applications, and event-action engines. This category does not
include automation of scheduled events.
Job Scheduling Tools

Job scheduling tools manage the flow of work on systems. This category includes
batch job schedulers and workload balancing applications working at the application
(rather than system) level. It does not include workload balancing applications that
work at the system level (e.g., high-availability software).
Output Management Tools

Output management tools automate the production, distribution, and management of


computer-generated information. Included are printer spoolers, fax servers, output
management tools, and applications to manage the dissemination of output. The term
output includes not only hardcopy devices such as printers and fax machines but also
other destinations such as pagers, email, and Web pages. This category does not
include workflow applications or packaged online viewing applications for specific
vertical industries.
Performance Management Software

Performance management software is used for capacity planning, performance data


collection, performance tracking, and simulation software, as well as service levelmanagement software when applied to systems and applications. It also includes
resource accounting software for resource utilization tracking and reporting and ISspecific financial management and planning.

204

#213259

2008 IDC

Change and Configuration Management Software

Change and configuration management software provides management of system


and peripheral hardware and software assets but not network devices. Software for
planning, tracking, and applying system hardware and software changes is also
included, as is software distribution, hardware and software discovery and inventory,
license management, settings and state management and auditing.
Problem Management Software

Problem management software tracks, records, and manages problems related to the
IT infrastructure and operations. This category includes IT help desk applications and
related problem determination and resolution applications. To the extent that IT
Infrastructure Library (ITIL) and IT service managementbased solutions help in the
resolutions of problems, those functions are included here as well.
Network Management Software

Network management software includes solutions for managing the network


components of enterprise infrastructures. It includes the two submarkets of network
availability and network configuration. Further granularity on the enterprise network
management market is available in the IDC Network and Service Management CIS.
Continuing coverage of network service provider infrastructure management
solutions, including OSS/BSS, is available in the IDC Next-Generation OSS and
Billing CIS.
The products within network management often and increasingly will integrate with
cross-domain infrastructure management tools such as service desks, application
management, systems management, and business dashboards across multiple
platforms and topologies, including data, voice, video, traditional networks, and
wireless networks. Network management includes solutions that manage network
availability by collecting and correlating events, service levels, alarms, response
times, and performance. It also includes network configuration management products
that manage, control, and audit changes to the network infrastructure. However,
solutions solely for network service providers are excluded.
Security

The security market includes a wide range of technologies used to improve the
security of computers, information systems, Internet communications, networks, and
transactions. It is used for confidentiality, integrity, privacy, and assurance. Through
the use of security applications, organizations can provide security management,
access control, authentication, virus protection, encryption, intrusion detection and
prevention, vulnerability assessment, and perimeter defense. All these tools are
designed to improve the security of an organization's networking infrastructure and
help advance value-added services and capabilities.
Identity and Access Management

Identity and access management is a comprehensive set of solutions used to identify


users in a system (employees, customers, contractors, and so on) and control their
access to resources within that system by associating user rights and restrictions with
the established identity. Subcategories of the IAM market include Web single sign-on

2008 IDC

#213259

205

(WSSO) and federated single sign-on (FSSO); host/enterprise SSO; user


provisioning, including granular authorization and policy rights; risk and entitlement
management; advanced authentication software (e.g., PKI); and legacy authorization,
such as RACF and ACF-2. Software licensing and authentication tokens (SLATs) are
now classified as a separate subcategory within IAM. These are parallel/serial port
tokens or USB keys that authorize the use of software on a particular device.
Secure Content and Threat Management

The secure content and threat management (SCTM) market highlights the increasing
unity between previously dissimilar security disciplines. SCTM products defend
against viruses, spyware, spam, hackers, intrusions, and the unauthorized use or
disclosure of confidential information. SCTM includes four specific product areas, as
follows:
! Network security includes enterprise firewall/VPN products, network intrusion
detection and prevention products, network antivirus products, unified threat
management products, IPSec/SSL VPN products, and network access control
products.
! Endpoint security includes client antivirus products, file/storage server antivirus,
client antispyware products, personal firewall products, host intrusion prevention
products, file/disk encryption, and endpoint information protection and control
products (IPC).
! Messaging security includes antispam products, mail server antivirus, content
filtering, and messaging information protection and control products.
! Web security includes Web filtering products, Web intrusion prevention
products, Web antivirus products, and Web antispyware products.
Security and Vulnerability Management Software

Security and vulnerability management is a comprehensive set of solutions that focus


on allowing organizations to determine, interpret, and improve their risk posture.
Products in this market include those that create, monitor, and enforce security policy;
determine the configuration, structure, and attributes for a given device; perform
assessments and vulnerability scanning; provide vulnerability remediation and patch
management; aggregate and correlate security logs; and provide management of
various security technologies from a single point of control.
Other Security Software

Other security software covers emerging security functions that do not fit well into an
existing category. It also includes some of the underlying security functions, such as
encryption tools and algorithms, that are the basis for many security functions found
in other software and hardware products. Also included in this category are products
that fit a specific need but have yet to become established in the marketplace.
Products currently in this category will either grow into their own categories or
eventually be incorporated into the other market segments.

206

#213259

2008 IDC

For 2008, areas covered by other security software include, but are not restricted to,
encryption toolkits, file encryption products, database security, storage security,
standalone VPN and VPN clients, wireless security, Web services security, and
secure operating systems. Note that the products covered here (especially for
wireless and Web services) are only those that do not qualify for one of the more
established categories.
Storage Software

Storage software manages and assures the accessibility, availability, and


performance of information stored on physical storage media. This category does not
include operating systems or subsystems. The storage software secondary market is
broken down into eight functional software markets, as described in the following
sections.
Data Protection and Recovery Software

Data protection and recovery software is focused on protection, restoration, and


recovery of data in the event of physical or logical errors. Included within the data
protection and recovery market are data protection, continuous data protection
(CDP), bare metal restore, virtual tape library (VTL), and backup/recovery reporting
products:
! Data protection software and add-on modules schedule a point-in-time copy of
a defined data set to tape, disk, or optical devices and are used to recover part or
all of the data set if needed because of logical or physical error or site disaster.
Included are library and tape media management tools. Although tape is the
most common backup medium, many products support backup to disk, and some
take full advantage of the increased recovery performance associated with directaccess disk storage. Backup is often used in conjunction with snapshot and data
replication software to improve data protection performance. If using traditional
tape backup products, recovering data from a backup set generally requires the
initiation of a separate process.
! Continuous data protection (CDP) software, also referred to as continuous
backup, pertains to products that track and save data to disk so that information
can be recovered from any point in time, even minutes ago. CDP uses
technology to continuously capture updates to data in real time or near real time,
offering data recovery in a matter of seconds. CDP systems may be block, file, or
application based and can provide fine granularities of restorable objects to
highly variable recovery points.
! Bare metal restore software makes a system-level host image from the
operating system up to the file system configuration on tape or disk, which is
used for system-level recovery of the entire host if needed because of a physical
hardware error. Backup products that have a bare metal restore module will be
included under the data protection software submarket.
! Virtual tape library software presents a virtualized view of physical tape drives
and media to a host, thus emulating traditional tape devices and tape formats
and acting like a tape library with the performance of modern disk drives. During

2008 IDC

a VTL process, data is deposited onto disk drives just as it would be deposited
onto a tape library, only faster. A virtual tape library generally consists of a virtual
tape appliance or server and VTL software that emulates traditional tape devices
and formats.
! Backup and recovery reporting software is designed for heterogeneous,
standalone backup reporting and management across different backup
applications, configurations, and locations. Reports are generated on backup
environment parameters such as backup job status, tape media capacity, backup
performance, and so on.
Storage Replication Software

Storage replication software includes software designed to create image copies of


volumes or files via techniques such as clones, mirrors, and snapshots. Replication
may be storage system, server, fabric, or appliance based and may occur locally or
between remote sites, potentially separated by long distances. Replication and
snapshot software is often used in conjunction with backup software to improve data
protection performance. This market does not include database replication software
that operates at the database, table, or record level. In more detail:
! Host replication software typically resides at the file system or logical volume
level within the operating system and makes a point-in-time copy or snapshot of
a data set to disk used for disaster recovery, testing, application development, or
reporting. In recovery, replication eliminates the intermediary step of a restore
process.
! System and data migration software is block-based or file-based migration
software used to migrate data from one platform to another for system upgrades
and technology refreshes, moving the data to a new platform.
! Fabric and appliance-based replication software makes use of intelligent
switches and heterogeneous array products to provide block-level replication
within the SAN. The intelligent switches have technologies that perform the
volume management and replication process and eliminate the overhead on the
host while providing any-to-any replication. It also includes a software component
to appliance-based replication.
! Array-based replication software makes a block-based point-in-time block
copy or snapshot of storage to disk used for disaster recovery, testing,
application development, reporting, and other uses.
! Replication management software is used to control, monitor, and/or schedule
the point-in-time copies made by the replication product. It may automate various
replication tasks, such as sync, split, mount, and so on.
Archiving Software

The archiving software market includes software that provides policy-based controls
for copying, moving, purging (delete from primary storage), retaining (in read-only
fashion for a defined period), and deleting (delete from secondary storage) data.
Some tools provide for more sophisticated functions such as content-based data

208

#213259

2008 IDC

management, indexing, and search/retrieval. Email and unstructured file archiving


products are included in this market. Not included are products that perform database
archiving. In more detail:
! File archiving software automates, based upon a defined policy, the migration
of data to a different tier of storage and media and automatically recalls files back
to primary storage when required for application or user access. File archiving
software creates, based upon a defined policy, a copy of a data set or a group of
files that are transported to an alternate location or committed to long- or
intermediate-term storage. Original copies of the data set may be deleted when
the archive is created to free primary storage space, or they may be left in place
if frequent access is expected.
! Email archiving software includes specialized email archive software products
that integrate with collaborative email systems through APIs to migrate email,
based on policy, to a secondary archive. Included in email archiving software are
functions for email retention and searching.
File System Software

File system software provides the organization and structure for storing and retrieving
data as files, folders, and directories. Software covered in this market segment
includes standalone, distributed file systems that are platform independent and the
primary purpose of which is to provide access to storage. These file systems support
sophisticated intersystem record and file locking capabilities. Products include
clustered file systems, wide area file systems, and file virtualization.
Storage Management Software

! SRM and heterogeneous SAN management software is designed for


heterogeneous, end-to-end discovery, topology mapping, capacity, utilization,
and performance reporting, planning, monitoring, and management. It includes
software modules for advanced functions such as storage provisioning, host-level
reporting, file-level analytics, application and file system integration, and event
management. To qualify as a storage management product, the product must
provide for the management of a diverse set of storage systems, storage
switches, servers, and applications. Device management tools that provide
discovery and configuration of a single device type or asset are not included.
! SRM and SAN management software for homogeneous environments is
designed for homogeneous, end-to-end discovery, topology mapping, capacity
utilization, and performance reporting, planning, monitoring, and management. It
includes software modules for advanced functions such as storage provisioning,
host-level reporting, file-level analytics, application and file system integration,
and event management.
! Other storage management software applications provide standalone storage
management functionality such as predictive change management, performance
management, problem management, capacity planning, forecasting, or SLA
management.

Storage Infrastructure Software

Storage infrastructure software includes virtualization and volume management and


storage access and path management software:
! Virtualization and volume management software enables device and networkindependent management of storage or data. It isolates and abstracts the internal
details of storage systems and services and simplifies storage management by
masking physical complexities from servers, applications, and other network
resources. Such software is frequently used for pooling or aggregating storage, or
to add new capabilities to available storage resources. Virtualization and volume
management may be storage system, server, fabric, or appliance based, and
frequently can occur simultaneously in more than one of these locations. Only
software sold as a separate software product or option is included in this market.
! Access and path management software provides for storage path and access
configuration, management, load balancing, and failover on path failure. Only
software sold as a separate software product or option is included in the revenue
for this market.
Storage Device Management Software

Storage device management software performs a specific set of functions for a


specific, homogeneous brand or class of storage device. Device management
software utilities capture basic information on the storage device and tend to support
only that device or device family (not a heterogeneous management tool). The
functions provided by device management software include storage device discovery,
configuration, and management, with basic levels of reporting. It includes software
used to control the configuration and management of disk devices, storage arrays,
and networks as well as the associated utilities, element managers, and agents. This
market also includes utilities for low-level disk device functions such as optimization,
defragmentation, and compression.
Other Storage Software

Other storage software covers storage software functions that do not fit well into an
existing category. Also included in this category are products that fit a specific need
but have yet to become established in the marketplace. Products currently in this
category will either grow into their own categories or eventually be incorporated into
the other market segments.
System Software

System software is the foundation of software products that collectively operate the
hardware on which business applications are built. Market definitions are discussed in
the following sections.
Operating Systems and Subsystems

Operating system and subsystem software includes the machine-level instructions


and general-purpose functions that control the operation and use of CPU resources
(both centralized and networked). These operating systems quite often also include

210

#213259

2008 IDC

network services such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) for IP


address assignment, distributed naming services (DNS) software (which provides a
shared database of system resources and access control information), and directory
service software (such as Microsoft's Active Directory), as well as other integrated
network facilities such as print and file services.
Availability and Clustering Software

Availability and clustering software virtualizes the system services of multiple systems
so that they appear in some sense as a single computing resource. This market
includes cluster managers and compute farm managers, as well as load balancing
software and application virtualization software that stands between the user request
and the processors or systems that are supporting applications or services. This
software determines which processor or system has the most available capacity and
routes the workload to that computing resource.
Virtual User Interface Software

Virtual user interface (VUI) software runs on servers and creates a virtual user
interface within the operating system that can be delivered to a remote device via
protocols such as RDP and ICA.
Virtual Machine Software

Virtual machine software either uses low-level capabilities offered by certain hardware
environments or installs a complete hardware emulation layer using software to
support multiple operating environments and the related stacks of applications,
application development and deployment software, and system infrastructure
software. Each of the client or server operating environments is allowed to believe
that it controls the entire machine, but resources are actually allocated on the basis of
rules established either at the time of configuration or dynamically by related
management software. Thus, operating system software and applications that were
previously incompatible can share the same machine.
Other System Software

Other system software is infrastructure software for systems and applications (but not
storage) that is not otherwise categorized. Such software is used mainly by system
programmers and administrators to perform housekeeping functions and to add
functions to operating systems that are not otherwise supplied. Examples include fileconversion utilities, screen drivers and fonts, remote control software, and sort
utilities. This category also includes enterprise connectivity software that enables
devices to exchange, modify, and/or present host-based network data.

Geographic Area Definitions


Worldwide revenue is divided by geographic area. Areas defined are Americas,
Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA), and Asia/Pacific (AP):
! Americas includes the United States and all of its political subdivisions, Canada,
and Latin America (Brazil, Venezuela, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, and Mexico).

Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech
Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Egypt, Israel,
Saudi Arabia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, and South Africa.
! AP includes Australia, China (PRC), Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea,
Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Vietnam, and
Thailand.

Operating Environment Definitions


All software revenue is allocated on the basis of the underlying operating environment.
The preferred method is to allocate revenue to operating environments based on where
the license revenue is derived (for platform-specific licenses). An alternative method is
to allocate revenue based on where the product is run (i.e., based on the percentage of
executables on various platforms). Revenue may originate from traditional perpetual
licensing purchases or through annual subscription or maintenance licensing. Note that
operating systems producing no revenue may still be used for deployment of revenueproducing layered software that is subsequently captured in IDC's market forecasts.
Operating system revenue from the emerging software appliance market is tracked as
other operating systems are, with software appliance revenue allocated between the
operating system and the layered software product markets (if applicable) on a
proportional basis. Operating environments include the following:
! Mainframe environments include IBM's z/OS, OS/390, VSE, VM, and z/VM that
run on IBM System z and zSeries hardware and other single-vendor mainframe
operating systems such as those from Unisys, Amdahl, Fujitsu, and Hitachi.
Single-vendor, non-Unix supercomputer, and massively parallel processor
environments are also included in the mainframe category.
! i5 and OS/400 include i5, OS/400, and predecessors that operate aboard IBM
3X, AS/400, iSeries, and System i family of machines.
! Unix includes all operating systems software that is based on Unix System V,
OSF/1, or Berkeley Software Distribution (BSD). This category would include
products such as AIX, HP-UX, Irix, Mac OS X, SCO Open Server, SCO
UnixWare, Solaris, Tru64 Unix, NetBSD, OpenBSD, and other operating systems
used primarily aboard RISC-based and Intel architecturebased servers,
workstations, minicomputers, and clients that are designed to run the Unix
operating system. Unix-based supercomputer and massively parallel processor
environments are also included in this category. Operating systems that are
based on other kernels are not included, even if they have passed the Unix
certification test from the Open Group. Note that non-revenue-producing versions
of Unix, including Solaris 10 for x86, OpenSolaris, FreeBSD, and other nonpaid
Unix derivatives, are classified as Unix operating systems for the purpose of
allocating revenue-producing layered software by underlying operating system.
! Linux and other open source environments include all operating systems
deployed aboard servers, workstations, minicomputers, and clients that are
based on Linux or other Unix-like open source operating environments. Typically,
this software is available both commercially with associated support and

212

#213259

2008 IDC

maintenance costs and at little or no cost in source code form. Software of this
type is usually licensed under the Free Software Foundation's general-purpose
license (GPL) or other licensing that encourages free access to the source code
to these operating environments. Note that non-revenue-producing versions of
Linux are still classified as Linux operating systems for the purpose of allocating
revenue-producing layered software by underlying operating system.
! Other host/server environments include all other operating systems that are
used as either host or server environments aboard server hardware systems.
Some examples of operating systems in this category are HP OpenVMS and
Novell NetWare, as well as residual revenue associated with discontinued
operating systems, such as HP MPE/iX and IBM OS/2.
! Windows 32 and 64 include all operating systems that support the Win32 APIs
and Win64 APIs, including Microsoft's Windows 9x, Windows Me, Windows NT
Workstation, all versions of Windows NT Server, Windows 2000 Professional, all
versions of Windows 2000 Server, Windows XP Home, Windows XP Tablet PC
Edition, Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows XP Professional, Windows
XP 64-Bit Edition, all versions of Windows Vista, and all editions of Windows
Server 2003, including the release 2 (R2) versions.
! Embedded operating environments and related subsystems include
commercially available products that incorporate the machine-level instructions
and general-purpose functions that control the operation and use of CPU
resources in smart, embedded, and limited-function devices. Embedded
operating environments may either offer some form of a user interface (graphical,
text, voice, or other) or include the required services or APIs to allow developers
to build their own interface if so required. These environments generally include
defined and documented APIs that can be used by application software, which in
turn is created by related application development tools. Embedded operating
environment products may include both source code and executable/runtime
code, or just executable/runtime code, and may offer either real-time or non-realtime operational characteristics. Real time is defined as the ability for the system
to respond in a predetermined time to scheduled or interrupt-driven events. Non
real time is defined as the ability for the system to respond rapidly enough to
respond in less than a second to network or user input. Embedded operating
environments tracked by IDC might be specialized versions of general-purpose
operating systems (such as Linux and Windows XP Embedded), but must be
commercially available. Embedded operating environments tracked by IDC
include Windows CE, Linux, Palm OS, EPOC, LynxOS, VxWorks, QNX, and
Nucleus. Special-purpose embedded operating environments that are not
commercially available but are integrated into a commercially available hardware
product (e.g., Nintendo Game Boys, industrial control systems, certain
automotive control systems, and so forth) are specifically excluded because the
operating system is not available exclusive of the underlying hardware product.
! Other single-user operating environments include all other operating systems
that are used as client or standalone environments. Some examples of operating
systems in this category are 16-bit Windows and DOS (including MS-DOS, PCDOS, and DR-DOS), OS/2, and non-Unix versions of Mac OS (generally Mac OS
9.x and earlier).

! Hardware appliances consist of hardware with an integrated, hardened


operating system; a limited applications set; and no user software installation.
Appliances differ from pure embedded operating systems in that the operating
system used in an appliance is typically a hardware-specific, special-purpose
operating system that is not commercially available on a standalone basis from
the appliance vendor. However, in some cases, an appliance may be constructed
utilizing an embedded operating system that is commercially available from
another vendor. Examples of such a configuration include a storage server built
using Windows Storage Server 2003, a firewall appliance built upon an
embedded version of Windows Server 2003, or a security or networking device
built using an embedded version of Linux from (for example) Montavista Software
or Red Hat. In most cases, appliance devices integrate operating system
application software together with application functionality, security management,
policy management, quality of service, load balancing, high availability, and
bandwidth management. Like the operating system itself, this layered software is
in most cases unique and specific to the appliance and not commercially
available independent from the appliance itself. However, in certain cases, the
layered software may be commercially available from the firm that produced the
software. For instance, a security or storage appliance based on an embedded
version of the Windows operating system may also incorporate certain layered
commercial software products from Microsoft. In this context, commercially
available operating systems (embedded or general purpose) and commercially
available layered software products that are integrated in appliance devices will
continue to be tracked in IDC's pure software market segments in addition to
being tracked as part of the appliance device. This tracking methodology does
not lead to double counting because appliance revenue cannot be combined with
pure software revenue due to the differing taxonomical definitions describing
these market segments.

Appendix C: Competitive Market Map


Methodology
The Competitive Market Map is an IDC tool for evaluating the competitive position of
software vendors in an increasingly complex market. The goal of the Competitive
Market Map is to present a quantitative software vendor comparison tool based on
IDC's rigorous software taxonomy and the depth and breath of software market data
collected and analyzed by IDC. The Competitive Market Map is a tool that permits
quantitative competitive analysis based on four variables: vendor revenue,
momentum, reliance, and diversity. The metrics used are defined as follows.
! Vendor revenue. The size of the bubble is determined by the size of the
vendor's revenue in the selected market(s) relative to all the other vendors
included in the selection for the selected year. All bubbles are normalized in a
particular graph.
! Momentum. On the y-axis, momentum is calculated as the product of the
vendor's growth rate and the vendor's annual revenue in the selected market in
the selected year relative to the previous year.
Momentum = (growth rate from year 1 to year 2) x (revenue in year 2)

214

#213259

2008 IDC

! Reliance. This is the ratio of a vendor's revenue in the selected market to that
vendor's total revenue in the domain in the selected year. The color of the bubble
shows the range of the ratio with:
#

White: 0% < reliance <= 25%

Yellow: 25% < reliance <= 50%

Orange: 50% < reliance <= 75%

Red: 75% < reliance <=100%

! Diversity. Diversity (on the x-axis) is a measure of the breadth and depth of
product offerings within a single market dimension. Diversity is weighted by the
importance of each individual market segment among all segments along the
selected dimension. Given a market dimension:
Diversityk =

market segments j

Wj * (1 - (1/10

share(k,j)

) ), for all vendors, k

Where:
#

Share(k,j) is the share of vendor k in market segment j

Wj is the share of market segment j among all segments along the selected
dimension

Thus, a company with a given share in all segments will have a greater diversity
than a vendor with the same share in fewer segments. A company with a minimal
share in all market segments along a dimension will have less diversity than a
vendor with greater shares in all the segments. Also, vendors with a given share
in a large market segment will have a larger diversity that a vendor with the same
share in a smaller market segment. Diversity is thus proportional to:
#

The number of market segments in which a vendor participates

The vendor's share in each of the segment

The relative size of each of the segments in which the vendor participates
