Western Europe Public Platform-as-a-Service Market Shares, 2016: Top 3 Continue Hypergrowth
Published: September 26, 2017 Content info: 14 Pages
Description
This IDC study examines the Western European market for public PaaS in 2016."Despite market consolidation around the top 3 providers, public PaaS offers notable growth opportunities to other providers," said George Mironescu, IDC's PaaS research lead in Europe. "Despite losing market share against the top 3, virtually all providers consistently grew public PaaS revenues in the past years. For instance, no provider in top 20 recorded a drop in public PaaS revenues in 2016. Such development indicates that despite the formidable force of the market leaders, tier 2 and below providers have been benefitting from the demand for platforms."
