Data Center Type Insights

The enterprise data center segment contributed significantly to the global industry, accounting for 39.2% of the total revenue share in 2021. An organization maintains an enterprise data center as a facility to support its data processing and storage requirements. In addition to supporting infrastructureslike environmental, cooling, electricity, and monitoring systems, it also holds physical computing equipment like network systems, servers, and storage devices.Organizations have direct access to their servers and better infrastructure management in an On-premises environment. Organizations can deploy applications that are exclusive to their organization and install proprietary hardware as required.

The cloud and edge datacenter segment is expected to growat the highest CAGR of 17.7% during the assessment period.Organizations are adoptingcloud asit enables them to maintain flexibility, scale, and focus their resources on operating their businesses rather than managing complex IT infrastructure. Compared to public clouds, edge data centers are situated nearer to the end user. They enable a variety of next-generation applications and give their clients the advantages of increased security, decreased latency, and enhanced data control. Additionally, edge data centers lessen the amount of traffic that goes to and from central servers. This is significant for high-bandwidth applications because edge data centers lower the cost of data transmission and routing.

Data Center Deployment Insights

The on-premises segment accounted for the largest revenue share of 63.0% in 2021 and is expected to continue to dominate over the forecast period. On-premises are based on the physical environment and are important for the organization. On-premises deployment makes it possible to monitor information on power usage, humidity, airflow, temperature, and other aspects of data center operations. Monitoring each of these variables is essential for organizations to avoid downtime, loss of revenue, or loss of data.

The cloud segment is projected to witness the highest growth rate of 17.9% over the forecast period, owing to the growing prominence of cloud management solutions.One may manage distributed IT infrastructures and have access to much more features with a cloud-based DCIM solution. In addition to enhanced visibility and machine learning capabilities, it delivers all the features of the On-premises, considerably increasing the company's chances of avoiding downtime.Leading cloud providers like Google, AWS, Microsoft, and IBM are willing to increase their customer base to assist businesses to increase productivity while spending less money. For instance, IBM and Telefónica collaborated in September 2021 to support the latter's modernization of its 5G core network architecture.

Application Insights

In terms of revenue, the asset management segment accounted for the dominant share of 40.4% in 2021.Data center asset management is the process of keeping an accurate inventory of data center assets, including patch panels, servers, networking gear, storage, rack PDUs, and even applications. According to the International Association for IT Asset Managers, the average business should anticipate an error rate of 15% or higher while manually tracking IT assets. 10% of errors are made during human data entry alone owing to transcription and typographical errors.

Furthermore, the BI and analytics segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR of 18.5% over the forecast period. The segment growth can be attributed to the fact that BI aids enterprises by offering performance and competitor benchmarks to improve the smoothness and efficiency of the organization.By presenting recent and historical data in the context of their business, BI assists businesses in making more informed decisions.

Enterprise Size Insights

The large enterprise segment dominated the market and accounted for 74.3% of the global revenue share in 2021. The growth of this segment can be attributedto the growing demand for digitalization, maximum uptime, better customer support, and enhanced security for sensitive data.
