Cloud Computing Market: Global Forecast (2010

Cloud Computing Market: Global Forecast (2010 – 2015)

Report Code: TC 1228 Oct, 2010, by marketsandmarkets.com

The global cloud computing market is expected to grow from $37.8 billion in 2010 to $121.1 billion in 2015 at a CAGR of 26.2% from 2010 to 2015. SaaS is the largest segment of the cloud computing services market, accounting for 73% of the market’s revenues 2010. The major SaaS-providers include Adobe Web Connect, Google Mail, Cisco WebEx, and Yahoo Mail. Content, communications, and collaboration (CCC) accounts for about 30% of the SaaS market revenues.

Cloud computing offers a significantly cost-efficient IT resource as the cost of on-demand IT services is based on the consumer’s actual use of those services. Even in cases where a company’s data centers are insufficient to handle all its IT requirements, cloud services can rapidly increase IT capabilities without requiring large investments for new datacenters.

In addition to reducing the purchase, installation, and operational costs for IT resources, cloud services reduce costs and staff expenditure by lessening the need to monitor computer systems and secure data. The idea is that cloud pricing is inversely proportional to the number of users sharing a cloud infrastructure.

Inbuilt IT infrastructure comprises servers, storage devices, and applications to meet the business demands. However, it takes a considerable amount of time to install and secure the infrastructure, and its ability to respond to business demands decreases over time. Cloud computing solves this problem by quickly provisioning and deprovisioning services whenever required.

Cloud computing involves low initial investment and employs a ‘pay-as-you-go’ approach where the amount consumers need to pay is determined by the degree to which services are used, and by the type of services used.

Cloud computing has been welcomed across industries as almost all organizations today rely on IT resources to conduct their day-to-day work. These require considerable investment and continuous maintenance. Cloud computing shifts this onus to vendors, enabling companies to optimize and simplify their IT-related operations.

Cloud providers charge a per GB fee for downloading or uploading an application in a cloud. The high cost of downloading creates a degree of vendor lock-in; and means that the amount of data stored with a vendor is directly proportional to the cost of downloading or transferring that data.
