This IDC study provides a top-down sizing of the cloud system software market in 2017 and a 2018-2022 forecast for this market. Historical and forecast revenue data is shown for the total worldwide market. Cloud system software (CSS) is a competitive market within IDC's software taxonomy and a subset of the software-defined compute (SDC) software functional market.According to Gary Chen, research manager, IDC's Software-Defined Compute, "Cloud system software is the foundation for private clouds. Most of the commercial market is for enterprise on-premise deployments and telco NFV, and while much desired featurewise, it is still very complex to deploy and operate. CSS continues to be adopted primarily by higher skilled and technologically advanced firms."
