Small Businesses Drive Enterprise Cloud Sales
The worldwide market for enterprise cloud-based services will grow from $18.3 billion last year to nearly $32 billion in 2017, Analysys Mason predicts. SaaS accounted for 66 percent of the revenue pie in 2012, while 33 percent was related to infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS). This revenue split will change during the next five years, with the IaaS share increasing to 43 percent. Service providers will garner a larger share of enterprise cloud sales as they bundle more offerings with core connectivity. Small businesses (up to 249 staff) bought 43 percent of the cloud services last year (due in part to fewer security-related concerns, the group says), and that number will grow to nearly 50 percent by 2017.
