Zhongqiao research predicts that the top 10 hot spots in China's IT market in 2016

if it in the Chinese market has experienced an evolution process in the past few years, 2016 will be a year of IT technology change in China. The change of macroeconomic policy will accelerate the speed of breakthrough and innovation through it. New architecture, new applications and mobile Internet are becoming the core support for enterprise business growth. Based on the survey of thousands of people in China and the in-depth visits of hundreds of it decision makers, Zhongqiao research believes that the following ten hot trends will appear in China's IT market in 2016:

1 The 13th five year plan will accelerate the process of it in China's market from high to civilian.

entering the 13th five year plan stage, economic structure optimization, industry upgrading and national innovation will vigorously promote the transformation of China's IT market from traditional IT architecture management to it service delivery. Users pay more attention to practicality, efficiency, simplicity and rapid deployment in the selection of IT products, solutions and services. In the evaluation process, users pay more attention to business value. At the same time, this evolution process will accelerate the landing of it in the Chinese market from traditional tall to civilian. Users begin to pay less attention to international brands, and pay more attention to the response speed, innovation architecture and service level of domestic innovative products and technologies. To some extent, a single product in sales can no longer meet the needs of users in the new economic environment, and a package of overall solutions will be more popular. In addition, users pay more attention to the value that the solution brings to it systems and services in the process of business innovation

2. Internet + accelerate the acceptance of innovative technologies in the Chinese market

according to a survey of hundreds of CIOs in Zhongqiao in 2015, the top three impacts of the rise of Internet + on enterprise it are: accelerating the transformation of existing data centers to virtualization and cloud computing (64.7%), accelerating the investment in new applications (mobile applications, community applications, web scale applications, etc.) (59.4%), and accelerating the investment in cloud computing (40.3%), To ensure the stability and security of traditional applications, so that new applications can be deployed quickly and economically. In terms of Internet +, cloud computing and new applications are rapidly becoming important drivers of it needs. Compared with traditional applications and traditional architectures, Internet + accelerates the acceptance of innovative technologies represented by clusters, open, open source, flash memory and converged architectures, opens up greater development space for big data, IOT innovative technologies and new products, and becomes a new hot spot of the next round of it in China

3. Mobile and community applications have become the focus of enterprise users' IT strategy

in 2015, driven by Internet +, mobile applications and community applications have developed rapidly, and have had a profound impact on enterprise users' IT strategy. According to the survey results of Zhongqiao on the impact of Internet + on enterprise it in 2015 (Figure 1), 59.4% of CIOs said they would accelerate their investment in new applications (mobile applications, community applications, web scale applications), second only to existing data centers to accelerate the transformation to virtualization and cloud computing. In addition, 25.8% of CIOs said that the current development and deployment of mobile applications is the most important strategy of it, while 59.7% of CIOs believed that the development and deployment of mobile applications will become the strategic focus of it in the next 12 months. Business innovation through mobile applications and community platforms will help Chinese businesses improve their market competitiveness in the global economic environment and enhance the ability of industry service innovation. Therefore, in 2016, enterprise users will continue to take mobile and community applications as the strategic focus of it

4. Terminal computing and terminal management play a decisive role in the stability and security of innovation driven business. If the experiment is normal, when the pointer stops for the first time, it will play a decisive role in yielding

realizing business innovation through mobile applications and community applications and improving the competitiveness of merchants in the global market. It is the terminal management of mobile terminals and the security of mobile applications and mobile data. At the same time, how to improve the development and deployment speed of mobile applications and the upgrading and operation efficiency of application life cycle determines the stability and security of business in the new economic environment. Zhongqiao survey shows that more and more enterprises realize that mobility management determines the business stability in the new economic environment and the development and deployment efficiency of new applications. Therefore, the centralized and unified management platform of terminal computing, ensuring mobile security, realizing personalized terminal authorization management, and the compatibility and management of mobile applications will become a major focus of China's IT strategy in 2016

5. In the new economic environment, hybrid cloud has become the new normal for enterprise users

compared with public cloud and hybrid cloud, Chinese users have the highest acceptance of private cloud. According to the survey data of Zhongqiao in 2015, more than 1/4 (27.8%) of enterprise users have deployed private cloud, which is significantly higher than that of public cloud and hybrid cloud, and the investment of users in private cloud will continue to grow in the future. In 2015, the public cloud of international brands had a substantial development in the Chinese market, and the public cloud of local manufacturers was also rising rapidly, which promoted the acceptance of public cloud by enterprise users to rise rapidly. According to Zhongqiao research data, although only 14.2% of users have deployed public cloud at present, 31.9% of CIOs said that they have included public cloud in their plans for the next 24 months. Due to the growth of private cloud and public cloud, the demand for seamless data migration in these two forms of cloud has increased rapidly. In addition, according to the survey data, 43.5% of CIOs said that in the next 24 months, the form of enterprise it will be dominated by public cloud and private cloud (i.e. hybrid cloud), and its proportion ranks first among various forms, which will make hybrid cloud the new normal

6. The rise of public cloud market acceptance drives the change of IDC service form, it technology form, and subdivision IT product form

as the public cloud is being recognized and accepted by more and more enterprise users, it also drives the change of IDC service form, which makes IDC evolve from the original provider of computer room infrastructure, cabinet hosting, host hosting and other services to cloud service providers, and its cloud service forms are diversified, Such as IAAs, PAAS, SaaS, hybrid cloud, private cloud and other services. At the same time, the form of IT technology and product has also changed. Modular products that are easy to deploy and manage on a large scale, as well as low-power, high-density servers based on x86 architecture will be favored, and open source based architectures and solutions will develop faster. Among the nearly 466 CIOs surveyed by Zhongqiao, 31% currently adopt and plan to adopt IDC cloud services in the next 24 months, and another 29% of CIOs said they were introducing and evaluating this by Wang Jinghai

7. Flash memory has become a new favorite of application acceleration and main storage of core business

with the shutdown of krpm hard disk and the reduction of price caused by the oversupply of flash memory in 2015, flash memory will enter the main storage system of enterprise it core business faster and become the first choice of application acceleration. According to the survey data of Zhongqiao, in the upgrading of it core systems, enterprises will first consider the mixed storage form of flash memory and hard disk (47.3%), followed by PCIe flash memory storage on the server side (14.9%). In the survey of CIOs, most CIOs said that different forms of flash memory storage have been or will be used in enterprise IT systems, among which server-side SSD accounts for the highest proportion (55%). The economy of flash memory has become the primary consideration for enterprises to evaluate flash memory

8. Enterprise users' investment in business critical application virtualization has increased rapidly

enterprise users are increasing business critical application virtualization, so as to realize the transformation from it architecture management to it service delivery. In the survey of 471 CIOs conducted by Zhongqiao, 50.1% of enterprises said that the focus of IT strategy in the next 12 months was server virtualization, ranking second only to it integration. The maturity of virtualization determines the support ability and response speed of it to the business. For the degree of deployment of virtualization, 22.5% of enterprises have deployed virtualization in production applications, and 29.1% of enterprises have partially deployed virtualization in production applications. In addition, the survey results also show that virtualization has accelerated the demand for flash storage and fusion/hyper fusion solutions

9. The change of application form and it architecture form challenges the business growth space of traditional storage professional manufacturers

mobile community has quickly become a new form of various applications, making the traditional IT architecture face severe challenges. Zhongqiao research shows that the most important consideration for users when evaluating it suppliers is to ensure the security and stability of core applications and deal with new applications with innovative and high scalability (41.1%). At the same time, the main reasons for users to purchase servers are that the server performance cannot meet the application requirements (32.7%) and the need to improve the efficiency of centralized and intelligent server management (16.1%). Therefore, the new generation of storage will focus more on rapid deployment, dynamic configuration, transparent management, cross heterogeneous integration, and load optimization will become an important measure of IT architecture in the future

10. At the same time, software definition and horizontal integration of IT manufacturers will further increase the market investment in super integration, accelerate the popularization of super integration, improve the speed of it response to business and the efficiency of resource deployment and management with load as the core, and accelerate the acceptance of integration and super integration in the Chinese market. It layered (server, storage, network and application) management system also continues to become a major resistance to the rapid popularization of converged architecture in the Chinese market. According to the survey data of Zhongqiao, 41% of CIOs said that they would adopt the fusion architecture in the next 24 months, and considered deploying Server Virtualization (66.1%) on the fusion/super fusion architecture to shorten the traditional layered deployment cycle and simplify architecture management. At the same time, software definition manufacturers are being sought after in the market, using hyper convergence for desktop virtualization and server virtualization. In 2016, more software defined storage or hyper fusion products and technologies will be launched in the Chinese market, and the market acceptance will rise rapidly
