This IDC study focuses on the education sector in Australia, providing a map of where short- and longer-term opportunities can be found. This study is part of a series of reports focusing on specific vertical markets. Provided are actual IDC market sizing and IT market share for 2010, along with forecasts for 2011–2015, including compound annual growth rates (CAGRs).
"The education sector is going through a period of change, and ICT will play a central role in the journey it is going to take," says Emilie Ditton, research manager, Vertical Markets, IDC Australia.
"Vendors working to find opportunities within the education sector must work with their customers to build ICT strategies that deliver against the institution objectives, and particularly help them understand how key technologies — mobility, cloud, and business analytics, for example — can help to deliver improved educational outcomes and experiences."
