This IDC study provides a detailed overview of IT spending trends and forecasts for 17 vertical markets (or sectors) and 10 product and service categories in Slovakia. The study features overviews of key industry developments, industry challenges, and vertical-specific IT drivers and trends and includes tables detailing IT spending by vertical market for each product and service type for the 2010–2015 period. Analysis is based on continuous research, the monitoring of users' IT spending and emerging purchasing patterns, and supply- and demand-side research.
"The economic crisis and austerity measures have had a profound impact on the Slovak IT landscape. Public sector bodies ceased spend on any IT project regardless of price and actual need. Outside of the public sector, shorter and smaller contracts are becoming standard. Price pressures are stronger than ever, and excellent customer service is gradually becoming not only something extra but a standard requirement. In times of highly volatile financial markets and rapidly changing economic conditions, flexible and adaptive strategies among IT vendors will be vital to their success and, in some cases, even their survival." – Research Analyst Jan Petruj, IDC CEMA
