According to Gartner’s latest forecast, the global public cloud service market will grow by 6.3% in 2020, with a total of 257.9 billion US dollars, up from US $242.7 billion in 2019.
among them, desktop as a service is expected to achieve the most significant growth in 2020, with a growth rate of 95.4%, reaching US $1.2 billion. According to reports, DAAS offers a low-cost option for businesses that support the proliferation of remote workers and their need for secure access to enterprise applications from different devices and locations.
in this regard, Mr. Sid nag, vice president of research at Gartner, said: “during the new outbreak, there were some small problems initially, but the cloud service finally achieved the expected goal. It responds to growing demand and caters to customers’ preference for flexible, pay as you go consumption models. ”
according to Gartner’s prediction, software as a service remains the largest market segment, which is expected to grow to $104.8 billion in 2020. From locally licensed software to subscription based SaaS models, coupled with the increased demand for new software collaboration tools during the outbreak, these two factors have driven the growth of SaaS. The second largest market area is cloud system infrastructure services, or infrastructure as a service, which is expected to grow by 13.4% to $50.4 billion in 2020. The impact of the global economic downturn has exacerbated the need for enterprises to get rid of the traditional infrastructure operation mode.
Mr. nag pointed out that during the epidemic period, the adoption of public cloud services provided CIOs with two obvious advantages: the scale of the cost used and the deferred expenditure. CIO can use cloud technology to replace expanding the capacity of local data center or purchasing traditional licensed software, so as to reduce the early cash expenditure. “Since the outbreak of the Xinguan epidemic, the debate about the utility of public and cloud has been put aside. For the rest of 2020, companies looking to expand telecommuting capabilities will give priority to collaboration software, mobile device management, distance learning education solutions and security, and infrastructure that can scale to support increased capacity. “
