The 2019 study has 201 pages, 56 tables and figures. The leading vendors in the cloud data center market have invested in high-quality technology and processes to develop leading edge systems integration capability.

Worldwide cloud services markets are poised to achieve continuing growth as IBM and Red Hat respond to the newer technologies from AWS, Google, and Microsoft that provide significant competitive advantages in the cloud markets. The AWS, Google, and Microsoft mega data centers use orchestration of leverage node to node data access.

The mega data centers let developers go from any node to any node in a 100,000 x 100,001 matrix grid, providing significant systems integration not available in the typical IBM and other cloud symmetries.

The quality and the customization available from IBM and Red Hat are significant market growth drivers in this context, providing capabilities for cloud orchestration systems access. Standardization of the application installation process is a key efficiency tool supporting a higher level of systems automation than has been available earlier.

IBM and Red Hat markets encompass virtualization, cloud, edge, and functional splits. 5G requires increasing sophistication from data center operators to manage all the AI data coming from smart devices. The challenge is to bring together a growing number of smart devices, cameras, and sensors and 5G radio access technologies depend on having strong cloud computing capabilities. A range of connectivity services are needed. Associated APIs are needed in each device to manage connectivity to a number of customer segments housed in the cloud.

IBM and Red Hat cloud markets encompass virtualization, cloud, edge, and functional splits. As 5G networks come on line in 2020, they require increasing sophistication from cloud providers. The challenge going forward in mobile network buildout is to bring together a growing number of LTE and 5G radio access information streams and use integration technologies to achieve useful computing. A range of connectivity services are needed. APIs are needed in each cloud computing application node to manage connectivity to a number of sensors that are implemented in different segments.

Worldwide mission critical messaging markets at $17.9 billion in 2018 are anticipated to reach $19.2 billion in 2025, indicating growth based on implementation of mega data centers, hyperscale cloud computing, automation of process using AI, streaming mobile smart phone network connectivity, tablet use for mobile computing, Internet apps, cloud computing, and business process management systems (BPM) that support collaboration. microservices process API components support enterprise innovation and change. Software forms the basis of change. Software API streaming message development tools drive innovation. Mission critical messaging is a key aspect of those aspects of web process making IT flexible and adaptable.
