This IDC Market Note provides a brief overview of some of the key trends and insights that will shape the cloud and security services markets in Saudi Arabia in 2019 and beyond. The study draws on insights from the IDC Directions 2019 conference held at the Ritz-Carlton, Riyadh, on February 5, where influential business leaders and decision makers joined top-level strategists from technology vendors, telecommunications operators, and IT services providers, along with leading analysts from IDC.
"The event provided in-depth insights into how digital transformation, innovation accelerators, cloud, IT security, the Internet of Things, and Smart Cities are driving the growth of Saudi Arabia's ICT ecosystem. This growth is in line with the goals of the kingdom's National Transformation Program and its Saudi Vision 2030 development blueprint." — Program Manager Uzair Mujtaba, IDC Saudi Arabia
