This IDC study discusses the factors that will have the biggest commercial impact on the ICT market across Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan), or APEJ, in 2011. After the effects of the 2008/2009 financial crisis, enterprises of all types and sizes have begun efforts to transform their usage of ICT, and this is reflected within IDC's predictions for 2011. As the economic climate has recovered, companies in the region are finding themselves in a business environment that has become more competitive that before the crisis and this is directly impacting the types of ICT investments they do.
"Increased market competition and the looming fear of a "double dip" recession are having an impact the growth plans of Asian companies. Companies in the region will remain more diligent with their risk assessments of future expansion plans and they will have the same approach when it comes to investing in new IT and communications systems and services. The days of "throwing money" at IT are clearly a thing of the past and CIOs will increasingly need a clear business case for any future investments they make," says Claus Mortensen, Principal, Emerging Technologies Practice, IDC Asia/Pacific.
