Published: May 10, 2019 Content info: 14 Pages

This IDC study discusses how the worldwide server market performed in 2018 overall and by vendor. It will help suppliers figure out what worked and what didn't work over the past year by correlating vendors' strategies with their market results. "The server market experienced a second consecutive record growth year in 2018," said Kuba Stolarski, research director, Infrastructure Systems, Platforms, and Technologies at IDC. "While growth breeds confidence, macroeconomic, and market headwinds in the coming year to two years suggest now is a good time to review go-to-market strategy, reconcile product portfolios, and focus on execution."
