Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) Application Management Services Market Share, 2021: IDC's Top 10 Vendors
This IDC study provides a review of the top 10 AM service vendors in APEJ for 2020 as ranked in IDC's 2H20 APEJ IT and Business Services Tracker.
"Large global application SPs dominated the AM services market in APEJ in 2021. As enterprise customers shift their IT sourcing strategy from cost efficiency to value, global IT players with expertise in AI, automation, security, and application modernization continue to see steady demand in their deal pipeline," says Rijo Thomas, research manager, IDC Asia/Pacific Software and Services Research Group. "Although the growth of SaaS-based applications and migration of application workloads to a hyperscaler cloud environment have impacted the scope of traditional AM services, enterprise customers find the technical expertise, business, and industry alignment of AM SPs a critical value add, making substitution harder. Additionally, with AM SPs now bolstering their partnerships with cloud hyperscalers, enterprises remain positive about opening new avenues for innovation, leveraging the ecosystem," he adds.
