Author: Sreenath Kandarpah Research Manager
On-line Presentation

This IDC Presentation provides a detailed analysis of the market and competitive landscape in IT services in Indonesia from January to June 2016 (1H16). It covers the market size movements and growth trends in each of the macromarkets (i.e., project oriented, outsourcing, and support and training services) as well as the key industries such as finance, manufacturing and resources, public sector, distribution and services, and infrastructure. The report also provides a market and vendor analysis of 3rd Platform technologies as the key market drivers. The competitive analysis section includes key strategies and activities of large global and local IT services providers in the market.

The data and insights within this presentation are a part of the "Asia/Pacific Semiannual Services Tracker" research, which covers 14 foundation markets across 14 Asia/Pacific countries.

Indonesia's gross domestic product (GDP) has grown at 4.9% in 1Q16 compared with 4.7% in 1Q15. The government has cut down the GDP forecast due to weaker global economic condition and lower commodity prices. Indonesia's economy continued to grow at a slower pace due to weaker global economic environment, rise in commodity prices, and reduction in spending. The government has also been executing several policies to stabilize the current condition through initiatives such as "Paket Kebijakan Ekonomi."

The government of Indonesia has been focusing on the development of infrastructure and improvement of the economy. IDC predicts that consistent implementation of policies that focus on stimulating the economy will facilitate better growth in the upcoming years.

The IT services market was impacted negatively as the current economy of the country is growing at a slower pace, and this is affecting the confidence of enterprises as well as their allocation of IT investment budgets. However, changing customer behavior and growing competition in the market have pushed enterprises to invest in 3rd Platform technologies in order to remain competitive in the market. Outsourcing services have been gaining attention due to the lack of expertise among enterprises across 3rd Platform technologies. This, therefore, opens pockets of opportunities for service providers that have competitive offerings and local expertise in such technologies.
