Software-defined anything, is also known as SDx, is bound to encourage productivity growth through increased network access from a range of portable and traditional devices. This is an important yet unclear term that refers to new changes happening in the IT world. It is a movement toward promoting a greater role for software systems in controlling different kinds of hardware - more specifically, making software more "in command" of multi-piece hardware systems and allowing for software control of a greater range of devices.
The global software-defined anything (SDx) market is slated to grow gradually by 2025 from 2014.
The global Software-defined anything market size spans technology and analysis of SDx market and region.
At the moment there are several areas using software-defined technology. On the basis of technology and analysis, the global software-defined anything market size spans Software-defined Networking (SDN), Software-defined Hypervisor (SDH) - refers to virtualizing the hypervisor layer and separating it from its management console, Software-defined storage (SDS), and SDI & SDDC. Software-Defined Storage (SDS) applies to all sorts of storage software; particularly virtualization software. Different vendors use the term loosely for different things. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is where network devices are programmable and so networks themselves are more dynamic. Again, it’s a term that’s used by different vendors for different things. Software-defined Infrastructure (SDI) also known as Software-defined Data Center (SDDC), which is an aspirational concept where data center services are controlled by policy-driven software.
SDN segment is the fastest growing market segment with maximum market share during the predicted period. This is because of increased incorporation of SDN in both - public and private sectors due to growing demand for big data, BYOD, and cloud computing technologies.
Geographically, the global software-defined anything market size spans North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Rest of the World. North America is expected to hold the largest market share of the software-defined market during the forecast period, growing at a significant CAGR. This is due to technological advancements and early adoption of SDA-related technologies in this region. Asia Pacific is expected to grow during the forecast period with maximum market share. This is because companies are increasingly adopting SDx as it provides a lean business model to minimize costs by automating the process control and replacing traditional hardware with software.
The major restraint that acts as a fence for the growth of the software-defined anything market includes the lack of industry standards. The industry is currently lacking standard architectures and definitions to describe the abstract, pooled resources of the software-defined data center as well as software-defined networking.
The major key players of Software-defined anything market are as follows:
Cisco, Citrix, EMC2, HP, IBM, Microsoft, VMware. The other prominent vendors in the market include 6Wind, Arista Networks, Avaya 0, Big Switch Networks, Brocade, DataCore, Dell, Ericsson, Fujitsu, Hitachi Data Systems, Juniper Networks, NEC, NetApp, Nexenta, Pertino, Pivot3, Plexxi, PLUMgrid, and SwiftStack
In this market, the vendors are reliably capitalizing on the development of SDx technology due to the rapid increase in request for software-defined solutions from clients and the other customers in the market. Due to the high level of competition in this market, many vendors are now focusing on acquiring small companies as it will help them to increase their product portfolio and virtualize offerings.
