“The market has really heated up this year, and clearly that is what’s driving the acquisitions,” Williams said. “I’ve had a half-dozen customers tell me in the last month they see containerization and Kubernetes as the single most strategic project/platform in their company, and the future of their cloud strategy. It is certainly not surprising that companies are acquiring teams with strong container knowledge.”

Williams understandably passed on offering any insight into Rancher Labs’ own future. But he did note that Rancher Labs alone added 27 new customers during the third quarter, with nearly all part of the Fortune 500.

“Industry spending on DX technologies is being driven by core innovation accelerator technologies with IoT and cognitive computing leading the race in terms of overall spend,” said Eileen Smith, program director with IDC’s Customer Insights and Analysis Group. “The introduction of IoT sensors and communications capabilities is rapidly transforming manufacturing processes as well as asset and inventory management across a wide range of industries. Similarly, artificial intelligence and machine learning are dramatically changing the way businesses interact with data and enabling fundamental changes in business processes.”

Some 75 percent of the total digital transformation spend will go to hardware and services. Chinese and U.S. companies together will account for more than half the overall spend.
