Increasing Industry Demand for ITOA
Gartner recently published a strategic planning assumption forecasting that by 2015, 60% of Global 2000 enterprises will consider IT Operations Analytics a higher priority than APM, up from 20% in 2012.
The demand for IT operations analytics (ITOA) has grown significantly during the past two years. Gartner estimates that worldwide spending in this market subsector will surpass $800 million in 2013, which is a $500 million increase from the $300 million spent in 2012. Furthermore, this more than 100% growth rate is expected to continue through 2014, based on the spending plans disclosed to Gartner during recent inquiry-related conversations. (1)
