Software Defined Data Center Market Overview:
Software Defined Data Center Market (SDDC Market) is expected to garner $139 billion by 2022, registering a CAGR of 32% during the forecast period 2016‐2022. Software defined data center (SDDC) is basically a software based data storage facility where all the resources which includes storage, networking, and security are combined and provided as a software service. SDDC provides a secured user portal which utilizes web-based servers and deliver the data effectively. It enables the end-user to access the information by virtualization and cloud technology. Moreover, SDDC provides an advanced data management solution which monitors and creates a backup of the information.
Exponential big data growth and cost-effectiveness has led to a higher adoption of SDDC across industries, such as BFSI, retail, telecom & IT, and healthcare. Therefore, the SDDC market size is expected to register rapid growth in the near future owing to streamlined and automated software data center operations. However, data security threat is one of the major challenge faced by the players in the industry. Irrespective of challenges, huge demand for dynamic connectivity, primarily in emerging economies, is creating an opportunity in the software defined data center market.
World software defined data centers (SDDC) market segmentation
The global SDDC market is segmented on the basis of network solution, services, end users, industry vertical, and geography. Based on network solution, global SDDC market is segmented into software-defined compute (SDC), software-defined networking (SDN), and software-defined storage (SDS). The SDS segment dominates the global market in terms of revenue and is expected to maintain this trend throughout the forecast period, owing to big data growth in the telecom & IT industry. Based on services, global SDDC is segmented into consulting & assessment services, integration, deployment & migration service, and managed services. The segment integration, deployment & migration service dominates the global software defined data center market and is expected to maintain this trend throughout the SDDC market forecast period.
SDDCs are adopted across various industry verticals such as telecom & IT, retail, healthcare,government and BFSI, manufacturing and others. The other segment includes education & media & entertainment, utilities, and transportation. Telecom & IT is one of the major industry of software defined data centers and Government and BFSI is expected to dominate the SDDC market share owing to the big data growth and increasing demand for software based data storage and services. The global SDDC market is segmented on the basis of geographical regions, encompassing North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and LAMEA. North America accounted for the largest software defined data center market share, owing to technological advancements and early adoption of SDDCs. However, Asia-Pacific would be the fastest growing region due to increased demand for software based services.

Top Factors Impacting World Software Defined Data Centers (SDDC) Market
Exponential Big Data Growth
As the name suggests, big data stands for the large and complex set of data. Nowadays, these data sets increase rapidly due to digitalization and high use of internet. In addition, the rapid improvement in the workplaces of the enterprises increase profitability through the use of different software, such as ERP, CRM, and SCM. These software enable effective business workflows and manage enterprise-wide resources; however, they also create a huge amount of data related to customers, operations, suppliers, and other stakeholders. Hence, companies opt for SDDC to securely store crucial business information, which fuels the market growth.
Increasing Need for Data Storage
Presently, a large amount of data is generated every second by various devices and technologies. It is expected that by 2020 the amount of digital data would grow from 3.2 zettabytes to 40 zettabytes. To store this large amount of data, the conventional storage options are costly and less efficient, when compared with SDDCs which are more efficient and cost-effective.
SDDC offers the ability to integrate with any vendor hardware and cloud solutions. However, presently integration poses a challenge as it requires skill and knowledge on various factors. Wide environment and adoption challenges of SDDC create a demand of service providers, which can fill the gap between SDDC technology and its users. Companies can overcome this challenge through proper analysis and integration of proper systems.
