Poland’s cloud computing market seen blooming
July 15, 2014
The main players are optimistic with regard to the further expansion of the cloud computing market in Poland according to a study conducted by PMR market research among the country’s 300 largest IT firms.
Results of the survey, shown in the report “The cloud computing market in Poland 2014 Development forecasts for the years 2014-2018”, indicate that most of the respondents expect to see dynamic development on this market in 2014 and 2015, above all in the SaaS model.
In comparison with the results obtained in 2013, respondents’ opinions regarding the future of cloud computing have improved further still. The percentage of respondents who expect to see the market mushroom has risen in all three categories.
Of the three main models of cloud computing technology, SaaS is considered the most promising, but a similar percentage of respondents, likewise over 30%, also expected to see dynamic growth in the IaaS and PaaS models in the years 2014-2015.
The largest market players believe that the key factor influencing the development of the cloud computing market in Poland is still the quest by firms to make savings.
Other important contributors are also the growth of the mobile internet model and the mobile apps market, and the increasing volumes of data being processed.
The weight of security as a factor influencing the cloud computing market in 2014 has diminished, with only 15% of respondents now considering it a key factor, compared to 23% a year ago. A sharper decline still was noted in those who see legal regulations as a factor affecting the cloud computing market. In 2014 just 3% of the survey participants considered this a major contributor, down 10 p.p. from a year previously.
