FRANKFURT and ZÜRICH, Oct. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterprise customers in Germany and Switzerland are looking for cloud and data center providers that can help them become more agile and create new business opportunities, according to two reports published recently by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm.

The 2019 ISG Provider LensPrivate/Hybrid Cloud — Data Center Services & Solutions Reports — one focused on Germany, the other on Switzerland — see the cloud and data center markets in each country growing quickly, as the number of managed service providers that build or maintain public cloud partnerships expands.

"Digital transformation is not showing any signs whatsoever of slowing down," said Friedrich Löer, ISG partner in Germany. "A major part of the European market growth is feeding off a robust IaaS market, in which hybrid and multi-cloud solutions represent typical choices."

In both countries, large service providers are increasingly managing extensive public and hybrid cloud environments along with hyperscale services, according to both reports. These large providers are continuously building up their market shares with expansion of their portfolios, certifications with technology partners and corporate takeovers.

The so-called DACH economic region, including Germany, Switzerland and Austria, has about 1,000 cloud or data center service providers, and about 5 million medium-sized companies that need their services, the reports note. The reports find increasing demand for high network performance, fueled by an increasing number of companies that require faster data services, with latencies of 35 milliseconds or less.
