Oracle out in front as integrated systems market moves with the times

“The integrated systems market continues to evolve and is entering a new phase of maturation.”

The worldwide integrated infrastructure and platforms market increased revenue 8.3 per cent year over year to $US2.1 billion during the first quarter of 2015 (1Q15).

According to IDC findings, the market generated 945 petabytes of new storage capacity shipments during the quarter, which was up 45.7 per cent compared to the same period a year ago.

“The integrated systems market continues to evolve and is entering a new phase of maturation,” says Kevin M. Permenter, senior research analyst, Enterprise Servers.

“It is a highly dynamic competitive landscape where the last 12 months has seen key competitors undergo major reorganisation, rebranding and realignment; all with the intent to strategically position themselves in one of the faster growing segments of the data centre infrastructure market."

Integrated Platforms vs. Integrated Infrastructure

IDC distinguishes between two market segments: Integrated Platforms and Integrated Infrastructure.

According to the analyst, Integrated Platforms are integrated systems that are sold with additional pre-integrated packaged software and customised system engineering optimised to enable such functions as application development software, databases, testing, and integration tools.

Integrated Infrastructure systems are designed for general purpose, distributed workloads that are likely to have differing performance profiles.

While integrated infrastructure is similar to integrated platforms in that it will leverage the same infrastructure building blocks, it is not optimised for a specific workload.

During the first quarter of 2015, the Integrated Platforms market generated revenues of $US755.4 million, which represented a year-over-year decline of -2.5 per cent and 35.6 per cent of the total market value.

Oracle was the largest supplier of Integrated Platform systems with $US391.9 million in sales, or 51.9 per cent share of the market segment.
