1H19 Country Report on IT Services — Philippines
By: Sreenath Kandarpah
As Southeast Asia adopts emerging technologies, there will be a shift in IT services usage by local enterprises in both consumption and type of services. IDC believes that opportunities in managed services will be driven because of digital transformation (DX) efforts that will strain the capabilities of in-house resources.
Vertical-specific expertise and services are expected to boost growth in the region. IDC predicts that because of their broad range of experience and expertise throughout different segments of the industries, global SPs will continue to tap opportunities in the local market.
The public sector has been showing increased interest in DX to better serve its citizens with greater accountability and enhanced transparency. IDC believes that an uplift in IT services opportunities, especially around IT consulting, system integration (SI), custom application development (CAD), and managed services, will be growth drivers.
Local enterprises' initiatives are focused on developing more agile environments for both applications and infrastructure solutions, in addition to replacing some traditional infrastructures with public cloud offerings. Managed cloud services will support and help them achieve these objectives.
