With the hyperconverged integrated system (HCIS) market projected to surpass $10 billion in revenue by 2021, with a compound annual growth rate of 48% (from 2016 through 2021), providers are targeting newer workloads and introducing new products to support them. HCIS appliance offerings led the market, but now the HCIS delivery models are evolving to a variety of deployment styles, including software and service-based solutions. Regarding the competitive landscape, Chinese vendors are gaining market share, and many startups are born with the potential of being acquired by major providers with a global distribution ecosystem. Technology product management leaders planning to grow agile opportunities should understand the direction of this market and rearchitect their strategy to stay relevant in the next two years.
