This IDC study offers IDC's broadest outlook for the year ahead in the ICT industry. 2015 will be a year of accelerating disruption, based on broadening adoption of the 3rd Platform's cloud, mobile, social, big data, and Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. 2015 will mark the 3rd Platform's shift to the "innovation stage," with an explosion of innovation and value creation on top of the 3rd Platform's foundation.
According to IDC Chief Analyst Frank Gens, "We are shifting into a new gear in the industry's adoption of the 3rd Platform, as cloud, mobile, big data, and the Internet of Things — and an exploding number of solutions built on them — will account for one-third of all IT spending and 100% of IT growth in 2015. Look for lots of vendor consolidation, 'strange bedfellow' partnerships, deathmatch battles for developers (and their apps), expanding cognitive/machine learning and IoT offerings, a growing focus on data supply chains, and skyrocketing influence for China."
