The global software-defined anything market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. 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. 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 the increased incorporation of SDN in both - public and private sectors due to the 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 the 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 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 requests 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.

"The quality of research they have done for us has been excellent."
Artificial Intelligence (AI), Virtual Reality (VR), and Augmented Reality (AR) solutions are anticipated to substantially contribute while responding to the COVID-19 pandemic and address continuously evolving challenges. The existing situation owing to the outbreak of the epidemic will inspire pharmaceutical vendors and healthcare establishments to improve their R&D investments in AI, acting as a core technology for enabling various initiatives. The insurance industry is expected to confront the pressure associated with cost-efficiency. Usage of AI can help in reducing operating costs, and at the same time, can increase customer satisfaction during the renewal process, claims, and other services. VR/AR can assist in e-learning, for which the demand will surge owing to the closure of many schools and universities. Further, VR/AR can also prove to be a valuable solution in providing remote assistance as it can support in avoiding unnecessary travel. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
