Technology Research: Enterprise Cloud Services Market Forecast

The global enterprise cloud services market will enjoy a 23.83 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2016 to 2020, according to Technavio.

The estimated growth rate covers software as a service (SaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and platform as a service (PaaS) that cloud providers offer to enterprises. The report covers industry giants like Amazon Web Services) Google, IBM Cloud, Microsoft and VMware (which is developing VMware Cloud for AWS now) along with some players like Datapipe, Rackspace and Sungard Availability Services.

ChannelE2E says: Instead of competing head-on against SaaS, IaaS and Paas providers, most channel partners are aligning with one or more of the cloud giants. We've already pinpointed 50 of the leading MSPs supporting AWS -- though Amazon is introducing its own managed services now. And Microsoft is now promoting Azure training to MSPs and channel partners. In terms of relative maturity, SaaS offerings (Office 365, Salesforce, NetSuite, etc.)are now widely mastered across the channel. IaaS offerings are coming on strong. But PaaS remains the wildcard for many channel partners.
