IDC's Worldwide Software Taxonomy, 2022
This IDC study provides a detailed description of IDC's software market taxonomy. It serves as the foundation for classification and sizing of the worldwide software market. For 2022, the taxonomy includes 81 individual functional markets grouped within a hierarchy of 20 secondary markets, which in turn aggregate into three primary segments: applications, application development and deployment, and systems infrastructure software. Each of the functional markets is described, with a sample list of representative software vendors and products.
"IDC's software taxonomy represents a comprehensive classification of the worldwide software marketplace," said Dan Vesset, group VP, Analytics, Intelligence, Content, and Data Technologies research at IDC. "It continues to be the premier source for defining and categorizing commercial software and the basis for IDC market sizing and forecast data products such as trackers and spending guides."
