Revenue from these sectors decreased for most vendors, with a few exceptions. Individual vendor performances in terms of overall IT services revenue varied between double-digit year-on-year growth, stagnation, and double-digit decline. Decreasing dependence on EU-funded implementation projects has been key to improving IT services vendor performance in the Hungarian market." — Research Manager Gabor Balicza, IDC CEMA </P> Technology Segment Thu, 20 Jul 2017 04:00:00 GMT Gabor Balicza Driving Digital Transformation in the Retail Ecosystem http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=AP42879317 <P>This IDC Survey includes comprehensive insights into the market dynamics currently shaping the IT services landscape of the retail industry in Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APEJ) based on the findings of IDC's 2017 Annual Business and IT Services Survey.
