Infrastructure / Cloud

The IT Infrastructure M&A & financing markets continue to exhibit strong momentum and with continued interest from both strategic and financial buyers and investors.  The largest strategic acquirers continue to put their large cash balances to work and pursue targets of interest in sectors poised for market acceleration. While enterprise and service provider IT budgets are exhibiting little to no overall growth, the composition of those budgets is shifting dramatically given the amount of innovation that is occurring in the marketplace. The key drivers that AGC sees in IT Infrastructure include the continued adoption of the Cloud (at the computing, storage and application tiers) and the emergence of Big Data Infrastructure and Analytics.  Enterprise organizations are increasingly leveraging the Cloud for computing resources, storage and application deployment, driving a rapidly growing market opportunity for Cloud services and Cloud management software platforms.  The highly distributed and real-time nature of the applications which are increasingly moving into Cloud environments is also driving the emerging of DevOps solutions which enable continuous application development and deployment.  The rapid emergence and large volumes of new forms of “unstructured” data has also created a large and rapidly growing opportunity for Big Data Infrastructure and Analytics platforms which allow organizations to efficiently store and access this data (often in the Cloud) in ways which provider greater intelligence in emerging applications.  The continued adoption of both Cloud services and Big Data solutions is also driving innovation across traditional server, storage and networking environments, creating disruption and innovation across those infrastructure tiers.
