Service Providers Should Seize Cloud Opportunity Now

The global market for enterprise cloud services is projected to almost triple by 2015, with the biggest growth coming in 2011, according to an Analysys Mason forecast.

The global market for enterprise cloud-based services will grow from $12.1 billion in 2010 to $35.6 billion in 2015 (see Figure 1). The year-on-year growth rate will be 43% in 2011, but will decrease to 13% over the next five years. Software-as-a-service (SaaS) will account for 70% of revenue in 2010, while 30% will be related to infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). This revenue split will change over the next five years, as IaaS's share increases to 40%.

Analysys Mason's forecast, created as part of the Enterprise program, covers software-as-a-service (SaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). It provides a five-year forecast of cloud services revenue worldwide, split into four business-size segments, four channels to market and eight geographical regions (see Figure 2).
