Authors: Gerald Wang, Sandra Ng, Chris Morris, Chris Barnard

Abstract

In this report, IDC covered key discussions and announcements shared during NEC Global Analyst Summit in Tokyo from November 7 to 10, 2017. This event occurred alongside the NEC Future Creation Forum as well as the C&C User Forum and iExpo 2017, where analysts had the opportunity to walk the grounds and explore the innovative technologies and solutions as well as NEC's customers deployment best practices.

Horizontal technologies such as preparations and growing R&D activities for 5G mobile networks and wireless systems are noticeably proceeding. NEC shared its dominance in the submarine cables global market, which continues to be a key revenue generator for the company. Moreover, ecosystem-based enabling technologies such as AI developments in supercomputers and predictive analysis automation are core technologies expected to spearhead new revenues for NEC in this DX drive. IDC notes that public safety or safe city solutions through integrated physical and cyber security solutions continue to be a key driver of NEC's vertical industries solutioning. These cutting-edge solutions have direct implications and impact on other cross-industry solutioning and potential market growth (e.g. retail, manufacturing, healthcare and energy, among others).
