International Data Corporation (IDC) envisions 2015 will be a year of accelerating innovation on the 3rd Platform.
"While the smartphone component of IT spending continues to grow in Asia/Pacific, its relative size is reaching a plateau, as enterprises shift gears to focus on efficient workflows on both employee- and enterprise-owned devices; web-scale cloud systems built by agile development teams to enable new business capabilities; implement systemic improvements on the journey to becoming a true data-driven enterprise; and leverage personalized digital experiences as well as branded Internet of Things (IoT) that provide an unprecedented customer experience," says Shyne-Song Chuang, program director, Cross-Pillar, Security and Technology Advisory Service Research Group, IDC Asia/Pacific.
IDC revised IT spending growth in the Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ) region down from 8.7% to 5.8% in 2014 followed by a very modest increase to 6.0% in 2015. IT spending growth for the rest of the 2014–2018 forecast period is expected to climb upward to 6.4% in 2017.
IDC expects the APEJ region to remain one of the most reliable engines for growth with multinational companies (MNCs) and Asian enterprises alike continuing to relentlessly look to Asia for future opportunities.
