JAKARTA, January 31st, 2019 – IDC announced today its top ten technology predictions for 2019 and beyond at the IDC Indonesia FutureScape event held at Shangri-La Hotel, Jakarta. The event highlighted the digital technologies and trends that will impact the overall digital economy of Indonesia, predicting that by 2022, more than 61% of the country GDP will be digitalized, with growth in every industry driven by digitally enhance offerings, operations, and relationship.

IDC believes that the digitalized economy will lead to an intense competition especially when the digital disruptors are heavily penetrating into the Indonesian market. In the past year, IDC has witnessed a continuous growth in digital innovation and initiatives from the local enterprises to compete and thrive in the digital transformation (DX) landscape. The 3rd platform technologies such as Cloud, Big Data and Analytic, Social and Mobility; and innovation accelerators such as Artificial Intelligence, Security and Internet of Things, are becoming the key enablers in driving multiplied innovation in DX for enterprises in Indonesia.

The Head of Operations for IDC Indonesia, Mevira Munindra, said " Digitalization is not confined to just one part of the enterprise, nevertheless, it is transforming major aspects of enterprises' offerings, operations, and relationships. These new technologies are changing paradigms for individuals, businesses, industries, economies, and governments. We see local enterprises continue to become more competitive in driving and accelerating DX in their organization because IT and business leaders have started to acknowledge more of the digitalization’s benefits in the corporate strategy.”

“The race to innovate, accelerate and reinvent the future of enterprises has begun. In order to lead in the competitive DX economy, enterprises must be agile, adaptable and cognizant to market and customers trends, business models and technologies that are emerging in the market. New technologies should be adopted as business benefits become more obvious and clearer. This will enable business leaders to achieve their business goals in a competitive digital ecosystem.” said Sudev Bangah, Managing Director, IDC ASEAN.
