This IDC Health Insights Perspective discusses results from the 3Q15 Industry Cloud Council (ICC) Survey, which polled 264 industry leaders across 8 industries (financial services, government, healthcare, life sciences, manufacturing, oil and gas, retail, and utilities) about which technology vendors they view as leaders in the industry cloud market. The survey asked companies to identify which software, hardware, and technology services vendors they would engage if their company decided to create, or take part in the formation of, an industry cloud platform.As of 4Q15, it is estimated that there are roughly 100 industry clouds that exist across the 8 major industries covered by IDC Insights. Considering the enormous appeal of the industry cloud market and the quickly growing focus on the space by both end-user companies and technology vendors alike, IDC Insights expects the number of industry clouds to exceed 500 by the end of 2018 and 1,000 by 2020.
