The leading market research firm lined up Google as the market share leader for Cloud as a Service (CaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS), while IBM ranking first for the Software as a Service (SaaS) and Amazon taking the top spot for the Infrastrcuture as a Service (IaaS) segment.

We continue to see new tools to automate data centers and technology for developers appear in the market, driving innovation around cloud as a service (CaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS), the revenue growth engines for off-premises cloud services. The move to hybrid cloud architectures fuels the adoption of CaaS as enterprises migrate their on-premises data centers to a cloud architecture, where servers, storage, and networks are virtualized and applications are automatically deployed by data center orchestration software.
