This IDC study provides a comprehensive summary of the worldwide packaged software market for 2011 and a five-year revenue forecast by geographic region and operating environment through 2016. Vendor revenue and market share for over 1,000 vendors are provided for 2011. This study does not contain detailed information for individual software market segments; that is contained in other IDC studies.
"2012 is likely to be the year when software growth begins to decelerate following the post-2008 boom," said Patrick Melgarejo, director, Worldwide Software Trackers at IDC. "It is also the starting year of a positive steady one-digit growth period. Although, following the main technology and social trends, markets such as enterprise social software, virtual machine software, and team collaborative environments will show a high double-digit CAGR until 2016."
