"Western European government IT executives that need to purchase services from systems integrators shall consider smaller and shorter contracts that lower the risk of failure and lock-in. These contracts shall aggregate competencies from multiple vendors to dynamically adjust the internal and external mix of capabilities that governments must acquire to source digital solutions in areas like big data and analytics, digital services and mobile computing," according to Massimiliano Claps, associate vice president, IDC Government Insights EMEA.

In recent years, stringent budget cuts have challenged Western European governments' ability to successfully implement digital transformation and have forced them to rethink the way they collaborate with technology vendors. Below is a sampling of takeaways the new IDC MarketScape provides:

  • Award smaller and shorter contracts that lower the risk of failure and lock-in.
  • Nurture internal competencies in enterprise architecture, business analysis, and code development to retain knowledge that is critical for business innovation.
  • Aggregate competencies from multiple vendors to dynamically adjust the internal and external mix of capabilities they need to source.

IDC MarketScape criteria selection, weightings, and vendor scores represent well-researched IDC judgment about the market and specific vendors.
