Docker, a private company, is an enterprise technology vendor that provides container platform solutions to build, ship, and manage distributed applications. Enterprise-leading technologists largely use Docker to manage their enterprise's strategy, procurement & implementation of containerization, open source software, virtualization, system administration, system scaling, orchestration, developer management, and IT operations.
Notable enterprise vendors competing for wallet share alongside Docker include: AWS ECS, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Kubernetes (maintained by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation), HashiCorp Nomad, Microsoft Azure Service Fabric, Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Apprenda, Mesosphere, and CoreOS Tectonic (Red Hat).
IT leaders need insight into the solutions, reliability, implementation cost, support structure, and compatibility offered by Docker - and its position, stability, and trajectory predominantly within the container platforms and orchestration markets.
Since 2015, ETR has surveyed Docker's target consumer base and end users about their awareness/evaluation levels and forward-looking spending intentions with the company. Our survey methodology, frequency of polling and round table discussions with CIOs, allow us to capture and report, in real-time, changes in customer demand and the impact these changes have on Docker's calendar year spend. Specifically, the data provides actionable insight into whether the company's products and services within Container Orchestration, Container Platforms, Infrastructure Software, Server and Storage are gaining traction and seeing an acceleration, flattening or deceleration in spending intentions within the enterprise.
