IDC's Asia/Pacific Digital Native Business, Start-Ups and Scale-Ups service provides thought leadership and advice to technology suppliers on the dynamics, tech-buying patterns, and go-to-market approaches needed to effectively reach and engage digital-native businesses (DNBs), start-ups, and scale-ups in the Asia/Pacific region.

The DNB market segment represents an emerging and fast-growing segment of organizations that were born in the digital-native era (i.e., post-2010). These organizations are highly tech centric and spend a significant amount of their budgets on technology as it is the basis of their business model. However, the industry clusters and relative maturity of digital-native organizations vary dramatically and the difference between an early-stage digital-native start-up and a scale up that has reached Series D funding and is potentially valued in the billions of dollars is significant.

Markets and Subjects Analyzed

  • A taxonomy to help technology vendors understand which areas the DNBs play in, across industry segments
  • Spending opportunities, how much DNBs spend on technology, and which areas are priorities
  • Survey insights to understand which technologies are driving spend and how the DNBs procure and deploy these technologies
  • Insights from these organizations in terms of where they need help from technology vendors to drive growth
  • Examples of how the C-suite operates in the digital-native segment
  • Insights from these segments of the market related to metrics and KPIs used to measure success, business value, and technology investment priorities
