Technology buyers are increasingly negotiating nonmonetary outcome-based service-level agreements (SLAs) into a project's contract terms, such as improving business agility and reducing time to market for new products. SLAs often span many stages of the project's life cycle (e.g., planning, building, and running an application). This overlap is acting as a driver for organisations to take end-to-end services from the market.
The natural space to start end-to-end conversations with providers is in the planning stages. Therefore, consultancy services are becoming a fundamental way for service providers to establish a relationship with technology buyers.
Organisations tend to require a range of offerings from a variety of public cloud providers. This often relates to preexisting relationships or the specific capabilities of the provider. Therefore, there is a growing need to be platform-agnostic.
There is a growing demand for third-party providers to play the role of cloud managed services provider. The main thing that organisations want from cloud managed service providers (MSPs) is for them to enable the shift from legacy environments and provide value-add capabilities that public cloud providers do not deliver.
Developers in New Zealand desire to possess the ability to quickly provision infrastructure for application development and testing purposes. Within the hosting infrastructure market, this acts as a driver of cloud hosting infrastructure services.
Microsoft will discontinue Windows 7 support in January 2020. Organisations have been refreshing PCs to avoid a situation in which they are unable to leverage on support services as they will not be eligible for further software updates and support.
Procurement rules now require agencies to consider how they can create opportunities for New Zealand business when buying ICT services (e.g., smaller contracts, joint bids, and subcontracting). This will lead to more local organisations winning IT services contracts.
