ITSM solutions are rapidly evolving to effectively broker, integrate, and orchestrate "business-oriented" services that are essential to an organization's DX journey. </P><P> "Organizations are currently looking at modernizing the way ITSM is currently deployed and are interested in implementing artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), cognitive, and automation capabilities. This is, however, turning out to be a challenge for IT organizations as they face issues in assessing, implementing, and managing the entire life cycle of ITSM processes," says Sherrel Roche, senior market analyst, IDC Asia/Pacific services research group. "ITSM solution providers and their partners will play a critical role in creating awareness about advancements in the ITSM space and the underlying capabilities on AI- and ML-based automation solutions by developing use cases."</P> IDC Perspective Fri, 20 Apr 2018 04:00:00 GMT Sherrel Roche IDC's Worldwide Embedded and Intelligent Systems Taxonomy, 2018: Views by Internet System Landscape, Industry, Enabling Technology, and Artificial Intelligence <P>This IDC study presents four views into IDC's taxonomy for the embedded and intelligent systems markets:</P><UL><LI>The internet system landscape view looks across the layout of the internet that shows the relationships among the interconnected system types and the resulting path on which data travels from the edge of the internet to its core.</LI><LI>The industry segment view looks up and down the system types and how they segment across their intended functions, both general purpose and application specific.</LI><LI>The enabling technology view looks inside systems and sizes the markets for major technologies that enable systems' compute, connectivity, sensing, security, and storage capabilities.</LI></UL><UL><LI>The execution view looks at what is managing the computing and how that changes the nature of the electronic system: a human user or an artificial user.</LI></UL><P>"The advent of near-ubiquitous connectivity among systems, combined with sensors communicating evermore data and scalable data processing semiconductors, has transformed the landscape of the internet, with increasingly application-specific systems and robust infrastructure, both machine-run and human-run intelligent and embedded systems." — Shane Rau, vice president of Computing Semiconductors</P> Taxonomy Fri, 20 Apr 2018 04:00:00 GMT Shane Rau, Mario Morales, Michael J. Palma, Nina Turner, Phil Solis, Abhi Dugar, Soo Kyoum Kim Market Analysis Perspective: European Financial Services, 2018 <P>This IDC Market Analysis Perspective explores the European financial services sector where financial institutions seek to keep pace with dramatic and sometimes ambiguous regulatory change, while adapting to a rapidly changing operating environment and new customer requirements. New technologies around platforms, artificial intelligence (AI), and distributed ledgers force financial institutions to rethink their traditional business and operating models and move toward a more digital, open, and data-driven ecosystem. As the industry is embarking on the "open" journey, which in our view is a logical continuance of the digital transformation, we see financial institutions experimenting with new business models such as data monetization and lifestyle banking as well as co-innovation operating models. This will fundamentally transform the way banks interact with their customers as well as how they consume products and services from their suppliers.</P><P>This technology-vendor-centric presentation focuses on the current and future state of the European financial services sector, including top trends, IT spending forecasts, and advice to financial institutions to stay on top of the fast-evolving ecosystem.</P> Market Analysis Perspective Thu, 19 Apr 2018 04:00:00 GMT Thomas Zink 2018年 国内インダストリークラウドディレクトリー <P>本調査レポートは、国内インダストリークラウド(IC)市場におけるプレイヤー(サービスプロバイダー:SP)の状況について、どのようなSPが存在するのか、あるいは各社の取り組みの動向について定性的にまとめたものである。</P><P>草創期にある国内IC市場において、ICサービスプロバイダーが、従来のITベンダーやITユーザーをベースとして、徐々に生まれつつある状況にある。国内IC市場で顕在化しているSPは、少なくとも現時点では、いずれもICによる収益規模の面では限定的である。各社の戦略を俯瞰すると、先進的SPの多くは短期的収益ではなく、産業特化データの収集/統合/分析を行う「プラットフォームとしての価値増加」にフォーカスする傾向が強い。</P><P>IDC Japan ITサービスのシニアマーケットアナリストである植村 卓弥は、「IC発展の重要な鍵となるアプリケーション層の発展のため、プラットフォーム提供型SPは、自社だけでなくパートナーによる支援サービス(プロフェッショナルサービス)を効果的に活用し、産業に蓄積した知見をプラットフォーム上で展開するアプリケーションプロバイダーを育成する必要がある」と述べている。</P> Market Perspective Wed, 18 Apr 2018 04:00:00 GMT Takuya Uemura 2018年 国内サービスベンダーにおける「共創」の取り組み <P>国内ITサービスベンダーは、デジタルプロジェクトのコンセプトの作成や目指す方向を策定するため、デザイン思考などをそのベースに置いた「共創」というアプローチをとるようになっている。本調査レポートは、こういったITサービスベンダーの共創に関する取り組みをまとめたものである。各ベンダーのプロフィールは、方法論、人材育成、共創の場/ファシリティの観点から記述している。IDC Japan リサーチバイスプレジデントである寄藤 幸治は、「多くのITサービスベンダーが共創という考え方を取り入れる中、各ベンダーは共創のアプローチやプロセスそのもので差別化を図ることを考えるべきである。そのためには、海外も含めた共創事例への容易なアクセスや追体験、方法論の改善、共創人材の強化などを、継続的に行っていくべきである」と述べている。</P> Market Perspective Wed, 18 Apr 2018 04:00:00 GMT Yukiharu Yorifuji IDC PlanScape Helps Manufacturers Leverage Digital Twins of Products, Assets, Facilities, and Plants IDC today unveiled a new PlanScape report to help manufacturers understand the steps and requirements necessary to employ digital twins.
