IDC calls it the 3rd Platform, built on mobile devices and apps, cloud services, mobile broadband networks, big data analytics and social technologies. By 2020, when worldwide ICT spending reaches $5 trillion ($1.7 trillion larger than it is today) at least 80% of the industry's growth will driven by these 3rd platform technologies. In the interim, there will be an explosion of new products and solutions built on the 3rd platform, along with rapidly expanding consumption of these products and solutions in emerging markets.
