The overall Infrastructure Services market registered a slight decline in 2015, with some areas of the market declining by mid-single digits. However, the Infrastructure-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service markets continue to grow significantly, which will help return the overall market to growth.   

We believe infrastructure services providers will play a crucial role in enabling the digitisation of the enterprise. The underlying infrastructure (e.g. networks, processing, storage) is the platform for the emerging software and services that will fuel the digital enterprise and will therefore be an investment priority for many CIOs.

However, cloud and the digitisation of processes and services will both drive and suppress overall IS market growth at the same time. On the one hand it will draw new investment into the market but by the same token we will see cannibalisation of traditional outsourcing services and an increase in automation leading to cheaper IT services and consequently lower revenue.

We maintain our view that the transition to a hybrid IT model that requires significant and strategic IT spend will take years to materialise in many mainstream organisations. It is a highly complex task that requires time and effort. Furthermore, Brexit could serve to delay decision-making by knocking the confidence of those just starting to explore the strategic possibilities of cloud.

In Infrastructure Services: UK Market Trends & Forecasts, 2016-2017 we explore the interconnected themes they are driving the market and examine the opportunities for suppliers as they look to navigate these complex waters.
