Extreme is the Fastest Growing Vendor in Omdia 2020 Cloud-Managed Networking Report

Latest Market Analysis Shows Extreme is the #2 Vendor in Cloud-Managed Networking, with Increasing Market Share, Revenue, and Devices Under Management

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 1, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR), a cloud-driven networking company, today announced it is the fastest-growing vendor in Omdia's 2020 Cloud Managed Networking Report. Omdia is a global technology research group established following the merger of the research division of Informa Tech's research brands – Ovum, Heavy Reading, Tractica – and the acquired IHS Markit technology research portfolio. In the report, Omdia found that of the top five vendors in the cloud-managed networking market, Extreme has experienced the largest increase in market share since the release of the 2019 industry report from IHS Markit.

Key Facts

  • According to the report, the global cloud-managed networking market grew by $2.6 billion in 2019, a 29% increase from 2018 and a significant increase over the traditional managed networking market, which grew by 3% in the same time frame. The cloud- managed share of the total networking market is expected to triple by 2024, even with COVID-19.
  • Extreme's strong growth follows its 2019 acquisition of Aerohive Networks, which was successfully integrated as of April 2020. Omdia also cites Extreme's flexible management model—companies can migrate from an on-premises installation to a public cloud subscription or even an off-premises private cloud, depending on needs—and plans to cloudify its broad switching portfolio as additional factors that influenced the company's success over the past year.
  • Extreme ranked second overall for revenue share in the industry, growing from 6% market share to 10% market share, and tied for second for devices managed, again taking 10% of market share. Extreme has a consistent record of increasing its market share year-over-year.
  • ExtremeCloud™ IQ is a machine learning and AI-driven cloud management platform that simplifies onboarding, configuration, monitoring, managing, troubleshooting, alerting, and reporting for network infrastructure devices. The platform is unequaled in its ability to provide administrators with a 360-degree view of device, client, application, and network health and performance. It is the industry's first end-to-end cloud management platform, the first cloud networking management architecture to be both cloud-hosting agnostic and cloud operating system agnostic, and is the first cloud platform to offer unlimited data, setting a new standard for access to cloud data and insights.
