IBM, VMware, F5 lead GlobalData's hybrid cloud theme

06 Aug 2019

IBM, VMware and F5 Networks are among the leading companies in the hybrid cloud theme, according to the latest Thematic Scorecard for the cloud services sector from GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

The hybrid cloud theme refers to any combination of interconnected clouds, including public, private or community, within an organisation.

All three companies gained the highest Thematic score (5 out of 5) for the hybrid cloud theme in GlobalData’s Thematic Scorecard for the cloud services sector. 

A Thematic score of 5 out of 5 indicates that the companies’ competitive position in this theme will significantly improve their future performance.

On their tail, with scores of 4 out of 5, are Google, Amazon, Microsoft, Alibaba, Oracle, Box, Dropbox, Nutanix, NetApp, RingCentral, GoDaddy, Dell, Equinix, Akamai, HP Enterprise, SAP and Micro Focus.

GlobalData’s Thematic Scorecard ranks companies within a sector on the basis of overall leadership in the 10 themes that matter most to their industry, generating a leading indicator of future performance.

IBM was also recently named as a leading company in the Industrial Internet theme, alongside Cisco. 

Both companies gained the highest Thematic score (5 out of 5) for the Industrial Internet theme in GlobalData’s Thematic Scorecard for the IT Services sector. 

On their tail, with scores of 4 out of 5, are Accenture, DXC Technology, Wipro, Infosys, Cognizant, Huawei, Genpact, Tata Consultancy Services, NTT Data and Atos.

GlobalData’s Thematic Research ecosystem is a single integrated global research platform that provides a framework for tracking all themes across all companies in all sectors.

At the heart of the ecosystem is a “thematic engine”, which uniquely provides a leading indicator of future performance, ranking companies on the basis of overall leadership in the most important themes impacting their industry. 

The engine tracks 600 technology, media and telecoms companies against more than 50 themes, generating over 30,000 thematic scores.  

The algorithms in the thematic engine create thematic scorecards for 17 TMT sectors, for example in semiconductors. 

A company might be a market leader today but, if it is not well-positioned in the most important themes, it will not be a leader tomorrow.

Viewing data by theme simplifies decision-making. GlobalData’s thematic research ecosystem has clear, actionable conclusions for companies in every sector. 

It has a proven track record of identifying the important themes early, enabling companies to make the right investments ahead of their competition.

Over the last seven years, GlobalData’s thematic research ecosystem has consistently shown that companies that invest in the right themes become success stories. And those that miss the big themes in their industry end up as failures.
